Ingredients

Wet ingredients:

Dry ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the topping:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with coconut oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree and eggs until smooth. Mix in grated apple, vanilla extract and maple syrup.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt until all lumps are gone.
  • Pour dry ingredients into wet and mix until combined. Pour the loaf batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface with a spatula.
  • Next, in a small bowl mix together the chopped pecans and maple syrup until the nuts are coated in syrup. Place the nuts in a line down the centre of the loaf, pressing down gently so they adhere to the surface.
  • Bake for 55-60 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Notes

  • If you want your loaf to have more crunch, add extra nuts to the batter before cooking. Pecans and walnuts work especially well with the pumpkin spice flavours!
  • If the apple that you’re using seems to be especially juicy, wring out some of the extra juice in a cup or bowl with your hands before mixing into the batter to prevent loaf from being too moist.
  • Be sure to grease the loaf pan well to prevent the loaf from sticking to the pan. You can use coconut oil or non-stick cooking spray to grease the pan.
  • Allow the loaf to cool for at least 15 minutes before removing it from the pan so that it has time to set.
  • If you prefer more spices, feel free to increase the amount of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice used.
