Easy healthy delicious pumpkin loaf

Although I may have added “easy”, “healthy” and “delicious” simply for the sake of making my post more Google accessible, my loaf is nevertheless; super simple, made solely with wholesome ingredients and of course; delish (if I may say so myself). I’m sorry I didn’t have enough time to cut the loaf and take a picture of it alongside some strategically placed doilies or flowers or baby pumpkins or fancy cutlery or…I think you get the picture. I also didn’t get a chance to take 10+ photos of it from different angles.

2 free-range eggs
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup raw honey
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1 1/2 cup wholewheat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp mashed ripe banana (for binding purposes only)
3/4 cup of pumpkin puree – I made my own by simply cooking some pumpkin(skin on) with a little water then mashing it with a fork.
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds for topping

Preheat oven to 180C

Grease a loaf tin with a little oil

Mix all ingredients together (first wet then dry)

Pour loaf mixture into loaf tin and top with pepitas (Espanol for pumpkin seeds)

Bake for 20 minutes then, loosely cover with a sheet of cooking foil – this is to avoid over browning

Bake for another 20 minutes or until the fork comes out clean
