  • 1 whole wheat pastry flour
  •  2/3 cup oat flour

  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 egg*
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted**
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 honey crisp apple, diced 
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray 9-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.  
  3. In large bowl combine pumpkin puree, coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, almond milk and vanilla until well combined and incorporated.
  4. In separate medium bowl whisk together whole wheat flour, oat flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
