- 15 oz. pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted and cooled
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup cane sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
for the glaze:
- 3 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8x4 bread pan with parchment paper and grease the sides with coconut oil or nonstick spray; set aside.
Next, melt the coconut oil and set it aside. Wait until it cools to room temperature before using it.
In a large bowl, whisk the pumpkin, eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla together.
To that same bowl, add the flour, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spices and use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to stir everything together until the flour disappears.
Transfer the batter to your prepared bread pan, using the back of a spoon to smooth out the top. Bake the bread for 63-68 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Leave the bread in the pan for 10 minutes before carefully inverting it onto a cooling rack. Wait for the bread to cool before adding the glaze.
For the glaze: whisk the syrup, powdered sugar and cinnamon together. Once the bread has cooled, drizzle the glaze over top. Slice the bread and enjoy!
