Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon Apples - Phase 1
It is almost fall so it is time for pumpkin bread. This year I am adding something delicious- APPLES!
This is a delicious, sugar free breakfast for Phase 1 of FMD (follow the Phase 1 ingredients), or a dessert for those not on FMD.
Easy to make and has every flavor of fall!
Here is the Pumpkin Bread. I use Libby's pumpkin puree if I don't have my own. It is easy to make with sugar pumpkins but those are only available in the fall. If you find a good price, buy a few. To make puree (that freezes well), wash them, cut in half. Scoop out the seeds and pulp. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay the halves cut side down. Roast in a 400 degree oven until a knife inserted gives no resistance. Cool. Scoop out the pulp and mash with a fork or put through the food processor.
You can freeze in 3/4 cup portions to make pumpkin bread all year. Or use in smoothies! It's a veggie!
Here is my video on making the bread: https://youtu.be/LTwW6nbxQPo
Phase 1 or Phase 3
3/4 cup pureed pumpkin
1/3 cup olive oil or safflower oil
1/4 c almond milk
1 c xylitol
1 1/4 c sprouted wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
zest of one orange- optional
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts- optional
Heat oven to 400
Mix everything but the flour in a bowl- whisk until everything is mixed well. Add flour and stir just until it is incorporated. Do not use a mixer or blender. Stir in nuts if using. Pour into greased loaf pan or silicone loaf pan. Put pan in oven and turn oven down to 350. Bake 25-35 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.
Recipe makes 10 standard phase 3 servings of grain and partial fat.
For P1 version... Use 2 egg whites instead of the whole egg and oat milk instead of the oil, water for the almond milk in the same amounts. Makes 5 standard grain servings.
1 cup chopped apple- I use Honeycrisp or Gala or Granny Smith
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1T xylitol (more if your apples are tart and you wan this sweeter)
Tiny pinch of salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
Splash of alcohol free vanilla
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the apples and salt and cook until apples start to get soft. Stir them frequently. Add the spices and stir, then add a splash of water. Continue to cook until apples are just soft. Stir in vanilla and pour over your portion of Pumpkin Bread.
Alternatively, you can stir everything together in a baking dish and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until apples are soft.
