Pumpkin Bread

September 25, 2019

Officially Fall season and nothing says Fall like baking fresh pumpkin bread. The aromas that fill your kitchen when making this bread will get you quickly into the Fall season. Y’all know by now I love Fall and although it may be a little too warm in South Texas (93 degrees today) I am baking up all the pumpkin bread to trick my mind into thinking its cooler out, that logic works right!?

This pumpkin bread is SO delicious! Heavy on the pumpkin flavor, perfectly sweetened, a little crunch from the pumpkin seeds, super moist and spiced with all the Fall spices…cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, YUM!

This recipe is entirely gluten-free. I used Trader Joes all-purpose gluten-free flour. No dairy either but honestly you wouldn’t know it as this bread is incredibly moist thanks to the pumpkin puree and coconut oil. It’s literally the best pumpkin bread I’ve made and not just for gluten-free for ANY pumpkin bread.

Drizzled with Maple Butter from Trader Joes

This pumpkin bread is SO good slightly warm out of the oven, drizzled with some maple butter (a new product I found at Trader Joes.) If you’re like me, you’ll eat this bread in a day but if you have some self control the leftovers are fantastic for breakfast. This bread also pairs perfectly with my Pumpkin Spice Latte, so you really should make both together to really embrace the cozy Fall season. You’re going to love it!

Plus this pumpkin bread would make a beautiful hostess gift and is a must for your holiday gatherings!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do and if you make it please tag #platefulnutrition so I can see your baking skills!

PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE

September 23, 2019

Cooler temps, shorter days, cozy nights, soup season, leaves falling, pumpkins and pumpkin spice lattes. Happy first day of Fall! My favorite season of the year!

I love pumpkin spice lattes. Starbucks version is good but I am not a fan of the ingredients in their syrups. I have found some coffee shops who make their own pumpkin spice syrup with real simple syrup and pumpkin spice flavors and to me these taste a million times better and more authentic to the “pumpkin pie” taste.

Honestly, making a delicious creamy pumpkin pie spice latte at home is really simple. This is my favorite warm cozy drink in the Fall. Move over matcha latte its all about the pumpkin spice latte now. 🙂

I use the pumpkin pie spice from Trader Joes which has the perfect combo of pumpkin pie spices. Regular or dairy-free milk of your choice will do but my favorite is the Califia Farms coconut-almond milk. REAL pumpkin puree gives this latte a more authentic pumpkin pie flavor. SO GOOD. Slightly sweetened with maple syrup and a touch a vanilla to balance the flavors. You can add espresso or skip this entirely if you prefer to not have any caffeine and the taste is just as delicious. And if you want to make this latte creamier add a dollop of whip cream or my favorite So Delicious cocowhip, YUM!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and please remember to use #platefulnutrition so I can see your yummy creation!
