Primarily Primal Pumpkin Pie
First of all, let me start off by offering my apologies for posting yet another pumpkin recipe. I swear this will be the last one for the season. Maybe. I came across this primal pumpkin bread from the blog eat the cookie and i haven’t been able to stop thinking about it, so instead of going to the gym today I baked a version of it.
Here is what you’ll need (for my version):
Here are the directions from this original version, with my very few variations noted:
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup 3/4c maple syrup 1/2 tsp allspice 1/2t ground glove
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2/3 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 packed cups almond meal
1/2 cup whey protein powder or coconut flour, measure, then sift- I didn’t sift. oops. I used Primal protein powder, which has stevia in it, and I used chocolate chips, so that is why I cut down on the maple syrup.
handful of toasted, chopped pecans, chopped crystalized ginger 1/2 c gluten-free chocolate chips
preheat oven to 350f. grease
2 small (7 3/8x 3 3/8) or 1 regular (9×5) loaf pan 1 pie pan. i like to cut a large strip of parchment paper for easy removal. I used a pie pan simply because my loaf pan was being used for meat loaf.
combine all ingredients, beating well with handmixer. pour into
loaf pans pie pan.
45 minutes, I only baked for 40 min, until toothpick comes clean when inserted in the middle.
remove from oven and allow to cool
This was most def worth skipping the gym for.
