Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bread

Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bread via Queen of Quinoa (@alyssarimmer)

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that you are having a lovely morning so far, surrounded by your loved ones, enjoying their company. If you’re lucky, you’re looking out your window to a winter wonderland (not for me, but a girl can dream).

To honor favorite holiday, I baked you one of my most favorite treats in the world, pumpkin bread. But this isn’t any old pumpkin bread, this is a Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bread. It’s soft and moist with a sweet mapley finish and a hint of warm spices. This bread is comforting, and perfect for Christmas morning.

Warmest of wishes from my family to yours. Happy Holidays!
