Pumpkin Seed Nut Bread

I never had to force myself to get off refined sugar and artificial sweeteners, once I started consuming natural sweeteners, my taste buds started to reject excessive sugar…..it happened very naturally for me, with no effort, an no need to fight sugar cravings. 

I love to have a loaf of this type of healthy/delicious pastry around, because is a great "filler" when I need a quick snack, it gives me energy as opposed to taking it away. Also, it is great to throw a slice in the backpack when I am out and about

Plus once you get your recipe right, this Pumpkin Seed Nut Bread simply tastes ridiculously good.

Pumpkin Seed Nut Bread

I like to soak my nuts and then dehydrate for better digestion, read article here

1/2 cup organic pecans
1/2 cup organic walnuts
1/4 cup sliced organic almonds
1 cup organic pumpkin seeds

1 1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup organic coconut flakes
3 pasture raised eggs

1/3 cup pasture raised egg whites
1/3 cup melted unrefined coconut oil

1/4 cup pumpkin puree (or ½ mashed banana)

Original recipe calls for 2-5 tablespoons quality raw honey, depending on how sweet you want it (list of fake honey is here)

…..might have to find a honey that doesn't burn when baking otherwise use a quality Stevia, but be careful since some stevia has other horrible ingredients like GMO corn maltodextrin , more info here

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 340 degrees. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper [optional] and grease with coconut oil (Or grass fed butter).

In a food processor, pulse half of the pumpkin seeds until finely chopped and almost a “meal-like” consistency.

Combine all dry ingredients including pulsed pumpkin seeds in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, whisk together remaining wet ingredients.

Add wet to dry and mix until incorporated.
Pour batter into loaf pan and spread evenly into the corners. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until fully cooked through.

Remove from oven, pull the bread out by the ends of the parchment paper and transfer to a cooling rack. Slice and serve once cooled. 

Note: Since raw Pumpkin Seeds are great for prostate health I like to "imbed" a bunch of pumpkin seeds into the top of the loaf while it is cooling, when I feel like it, since the heat [probably] destroys the enzymes of the baked pumpkin seeds

"The Healthy Chef's"  Deliciously Healthy  Food Tidbits:

The incidence of male prostate problems has been found to be considerably lower in countries where pumpkin seeds are often consumed, like Austria and Hungary.

Eggs are perhaps the most assimilatable form of non-plant based protein.

Pink Himalayan Salt is a totally different animal than common table salt, in that it contains 84 natural minerals in perfect balance.

Don't be afraid of the saturated fat of Coconut Oil. It is extremely healthy and has been shown to contribute to weight loss  .

EAT HEALTHY, BUT ENJOY WHAT YOU EAT!!!!!.
