Unprocessed and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

Unprocessed and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread by FamilySpice.com

I have a small confession to make. My first week of going completely unprocessed hasn’t been too successful. It was a super busy week, with a thousand activities to juggle. Stress makes me eat. Might be why I have 15 extra pounds I need to shed. No excuses though. It’s typical for moms, especially me, to put myself on the bottom of the priority list. I know next week will be better. Especially because I took the time to take care of ME and make myself this unprocessed gluten-free pumpkin bread.

I won’t take total credit for posting this today. This bread is something I have been working on and tweaking for a couple years. You’d think I would have it perfected by now. But, since I make this bread for me specifically, for MY taste and MY health benefit, well, you can imagine that I just don’t make this often enough. It took my #SundaySupper gang to get back to baking for ME with this Sunday’s Autumn “orange” menu plan. From sweet potatoes to pumpkin, squash to carrots, everything is on the menu.

Unprocessed and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread by FamilySpice.com

This bread is super moist and MILDLY sweet. While I may not be completely unprocessing as I hoped last week, I wasn’t THAT bad. I typically do not like to overload on sugar in my quick breads, muffins or scones. But, no one will stop you from drizzling a little on honey when you eat this bread. Well, I certainly won’t!

And speaking of honey, that’s the unprocessed sweetener I chose for this recipe (my personal favorite). The bulk of the bread is made with almond butter, almond meal and some arrowroot powder. It’s not vegan, as I do use eggs. but, it is loaded up with almonds, pistachios and cranberries, which add a dab more sweetness, too.

Most importantly, it’s fabulous with my morning tea… even on a Sunday morning!

    Don’t beat yourself up too bad over week one – being conscious of it and taking steps in the right direction is great! I have just recently decided to go gluten free so this recipe couldn’t have come at a better time! Thank you for this and for joining in this week!

  2. This is a beautiful bread. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Renee at #

    Don’t worry about not being totally unprocessed lately…just move forward and remember that tomorrow is a whole new day to start fresh. Your bread looks wonderful too.

  4. Trying to change eating habit is another habit that has to be worked upon. It´s great that you´re doing it. This bread looks really good, so moist!

  5. Great looking bread. I prefer breads like this to have little sweetener in them, so this recipe looks perfect to me. I wouldn’t worry about using some unprocessed foods, especially if you’ve considered the alternatives. Just reducing how much you use forever is more important than being totally free of processed foods for one month, IMO.

  6. Good for you for taking care of yourself. It’s a tough thing for busy moms to do, that’s for sure! I’m off to check out all these lovely recipes and find something for supper tonight. I’ll be making your pumpkin bread for sure. My daughter-in-law eats gluten free, so I’m always looking for ways to treat her to something new. Have a wonderful Sunday. :)

    This is gorgeous!

  8. Your pictures are gorgeous and this bread looks perfect!! Thanks for sharing on #SundaySupper.

  9. This bread sounds amazing–there’s nothing I love more than having nuts and seeds in my bread yum!

  10. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous! Let last week go, and take it day by day!

  11. Beautiful loaf, I love that you used honey as your sweetener!

  12. I’ve been trying to eat mostly unprocessed for a couple of years now, and there’s a lot of slipping and sliding involved. However, I am sure just trying to change makes a difference in the end.

  13. Katie at #

    Love that the ingredients in the bread are unprocessed! It looks gorgeous…

  14. Sarah at #

    Healthy AND GF? Win!

  15. This looks so beautiful…and the pictures are almost haunting – I love it!!

    • Laura at #

      I like that description- “Haunting!” Thanks!

  16. Your photos are stunning and the bread looks delicious. Good for you for taking care of yourself!

  17. Just shared this with one of my buddies who is GF, she will love it!! Great recipe, thanks for sharing :)

  18. It is so easy to put yourself at the bottom of the list but I am starting to realize that taking care of yourself is just as important as taking care of your family. I hope the rest of the month of unprocessed goods goes smoother for you.

  19. I love pumpkin bread and this looks fantastic. I love the healthier version and you can beat that it’s gluten free. Yum!

  20. Liz at #

    I love that you’re going unprocessed, Laura!! Good for you…I think I’d last about 30 minutes. Your healthy pumpkin bread looks incredible~

  21. Katy at #

    Wonderful gluten-free recipe! I can’t wait to try this, I think I will have it with a cup of tea this coming Sunday!

  22. Soni at #

    I love how healthy and delicious this bread must be!!Love the use of almond flour,the nuts and pumpkin in here.So yummy :)

  23. Oh this looks awesome! I’m always looking for gluten free recipes. Thanks for sharing!

  24. YUM! I would be slathering this bread with butter right out of the oven! YES…I said BUTTER! Beautiful pictures!

    • Laura at #

      ha! ha! Love butter! I like it with some cream cheese, actually!

  25. Now that’s a beautiful pumpkin bread Laura!! I haven’t made anything pumpkin this year yet. I’m not sure why I’m always so behind when it comes to baking seasonal goods. I can almost smell your delicious bread here…

  26. Sunithi at #

    ooh , call this cake :) so full of yummy ingredients seems more like a decadent wholesome dessert !! Love it ! This challenge is driving me nuts trying to make everything with unprocessed ingredients, so don’t beat yourself up for the baking powder. It ‘s very wholesome & unprocessed with that too. Can’t wait to see the rest of your recipes this month. All the best … with the unprocessed I mean. Know how tough it is ;)

    • Laura at #

      I think the toughest part is that I’m trying to be all healthy, and the hubs and the kids are eating normally. It’s not that we eat a lot of junk, but I’m not about to make all this bread, pasta and crackers from scratch! I’ll never leave the kitchen! Thanks, Sue, for your encouraging words!

  27. Putting yourself first will always allow you to be there for everyone else, otherwise you’ll run out of steam, feel unappreciated or get sick. I’ve not done unprocessed but I do mill my own flour so I get all the good bits.

  28. Take it easy on yourself. It is tough to completely change the way you eat. This bread looks amazing, love pumpkin bread!

  29. Laura at #

    Thanks, everyone, for your kind words and encouragement. I think with every child I gave birth to, I acquired more and more of the “Momma Guilt” gene!

  30. Laura I’m glad to hear you took some “Me” time for yourself. The bread is a wonderful “Me” treat. Love your those little white pumpkins too.

  31. Sarah at #

    This pumpkin bread looks so yummy and healthy. I’m right there with you Laura. I need to lose 30 lbs but we can shed 1 pound at a time together. I haven’t cut out all processed foods but I’m trying to protion control and make better decisions!

  32. Mmm- I love all the goodies packed into that bread. How delicious!

  33. Kim Bee at #

    This looks so amazing Laura. I am so impressed you did it gf and unprocessed. You rock.

  34. Hezzi-D at #

    This looks great! I’m always looking for gluten free breads!

  35. Your bread looks beautiful. I’ve been trying to go at least a whole lot less processed too. My weaknesses are sugar and flour. I’ll have to try your bread – it’s perfect!!

  36. You should be proud of yourself for all the steps you’ve taken towards your goals. I know how hard it is to change the diet and lifestyle. Thanks for this wonderful recipe! I also don’t like my baked goods too sweet so this sounds right up my alley.

  37. First, awesome that you made this both unprocessed and gluten free! Second, I love the variety of textures with the bread itself, the nuts and the berries.

    I bet this would make an excellent breakfast!
