STEPS

  1. Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly in a bowl

  2. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl

  3. Always remember to follow the “wet to dry method” when you bake (stir wet ingredients into the dry)

  4. Pour into a parchment paper lined bread loaf pan

  5. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes

  6. Check from time to time for doneness by inserting a toothpick - if it comes out clean, it’s ready!

  7. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before slicing into 1” slices and serve (preferably with vanilla ice cream!)

Notes:

  • If you don’t have pumpkin spice, that’s totally fine! Adding cinnamon powder will be just as great.

  • We used nut butter for the creamy nutty flavor.  You can substitute with peanut butter but the flavor may be overbearing
