Glaze (optional)

  • ½ cup BPA-free canned coconut cream

    1 tbsp pure maple syrup

Preparation

1. Prepare bread: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, arrowroot, flaxseed, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger and allspice; whisk to remove lumps.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, coconut oil and maple syrup until light and fluffy, 1 minute. Stir in orange zest and juice, vanilla and pumpkin purée. Add flour mixture and stir until no white streaks remain. Fold in 6 tbsp pecans.

4. Pour into prepared pan. Bake until golden brown and a thin knife comes out clean when inserted into the center, 50 to 55 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Cut into 8 slices.

5. Meanwhile, prepare glaze, if using: In a medium bowl, whisk together all glaze ingredients. Drizzle over top of loaf and sprinkle with remaining 2 tbsp pecans.

NOTE: If following our meal plan, freeze 4 servings for Week 2. Thaw and reheat when called for.
