Pumpkin Bread (with coconut flour)

So yummy..! And Grain free!

This grain free bread is light, moist and delicious.  I adore this lightly toasted and slavered with cream cheese.   It had a slight warm spicey taste to it and reminds me of a West Indian Bun bread we used to buy in London.  You can make the pumpkin puree yourself or cheat and use unsweetened canned puree.  

This passed the husband taste test with flying colours and I will be baking this a lot from now….a lot…!
