Happy Saturday, if all goes well right now I’m having the time of my life running the Gilbert Half Marathon this morning. So, like many of my posts this one is pre-set to post but I won’t be in to check and see if there is anything wrong with it till after the race. Maybe not after the race because my MIL, SIL, and baby nephew (hereby known as Baby J) are in town.
Poor big Nala gets so excited that she can barely stand it. Two nights ago I gave her a bully stick so she would calm down while we all watched TV and played with baby J. She was so nervous she ran around with it in her mouth crying and whining for 20 minutes. When she finally sat down to eat it, she tried to get through it so fast that she ended up throwing it all up. 3 minutes later Baby J threw up about a foot from the same spot. At that moment it became abundantly clear to me that I had not purchased enough wine at Costco to get through this next week. Nala isn’t quite sure about baby J, but baby J is sure about her. He loves her squeaky toys and loves to touch her. As a 9-month-old he is exploring his strength and he might have popped her on the nose a few times when we weren’t expecting it. Nala reciprocates by licking his feet. So far so good. Just in case, I ran by Costco yesterday and grabbed a few more bottles of wine.

I made this bread on Thursday night and by Friday morning it was half gone. It was a total hit and they couldn’t believe it didn’t have any flour in it! Well, technically it has 3 tablespoons of coconut flour in it which my MIL said doesn’t even count, her pumpkin bread recipe has 3 cups of white flour in it. In this recipe, sunflower seed butter (or your favorite seed or nut butter) is the base of the recipe. The nuts or seeds will provide nourishing nutrients and healthy fats to keep you rocking and rolling during the holiday season.
Not only is this bread moist, and delicious. It fills your house with the smell of pumpkin spice. There is no better smell during the holidays than that smell, aimiright???? Sometimes during the summer when I miss the holidays I open the leftover pumpkin spice and take a big waft in. No, I don’t do that, I’m not weird like that, I swear. (muahahahaha you’ll never know). However, when my SIL said, “I could actually make this one at home.” I knew I definitely had a winner on my hands! As a busy young mama she has her hands full, so being willing to make something from scratch at home means two things 1)it tastes absolutely amazing and 2)it is easy to make.
- 1 cup sunflower seed butter (or other nut/seed butter)
- 3/4cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice mix
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour or oat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Combine all ingredients (except for pumpking seeds) in a food processor. Process until everything is mixed. Usually I will process mine for 5 seconds, scrape the side and process another 5 seconds.
- Pour in a parchment lined bread pan (makes for SUPER easy clean up) and then top with pumpkin seeds.
- Bake it for 40-45 minutes. (Depending on your altitude it may require a little longer, just bake until tooth pick inserted comes out clean!)
- Let cool for 5 minutes and then eat it all up!!!!
