Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread

Happy Monday! As the year goes on, I’m starting to get less excited about school, and developing some serious cases of the Monday blues. Lucky for me, this Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread is the perfect cure! It’s healthy while still being perfectly decadent, and incorporates all of my favourite fall spices and flavours. It will also make your house smell very nice! Enjoy it wile reading a good book on a cold day;))

Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread

Serves: Makes 1 Loaf

Total Time: 140 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cup + 2 tsp oat flour
  • 2 tsp + 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 5 tbs water
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the chia seeds and water. Let sit for 15 minutes to form a chia “egg”.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the 1 1/4 cup of oat flour, spices (including the 2 tsp of cinnamon), and baking soda. Add in the pumpkin puree, coconut oil, 1/2 cup of maple syrup, vanilla and chia egg and mix well.
  4. Mix together the remaining oat flour, cinnamon and maple syrup in a separate bowl.
  5. Grease a standard loaf pan with coconut oil and pour the batter into it. Spoon the cinnamon, oat flour and maple mixture on top, and use a toothpick to swirl it throughout the bread. Place in the oven for two hours, and cool completely before serving.

Hope you like this recipe; see you next week!

Cinnamon Apples

Hey there! If you didn’t see my Instagram story the other day, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve decided to only post once a week from now on. I really underestimated how busy I’d be once school started up again, and haven’t been able to keep up with posting three times per week, as much as I’ve wanted to! So, I’ll for sure be posting every Monday, and there might be some extra bonus posts sprinkled throughout the week sometimes.

Annnnnywaaaays, this week I have yet another super fall-ish recipe! These cinnamon apples take about 15 minutes to whip up and are SO DELISH! They’re everything that fall should be and more. They would be great on oatmeal, yogurt, in a pie, on nice cream, in cereal, the list goes on and on! I devoured them all on their own:) Enjoy the recipe:))

Cinnamon Apples

Serves: 2

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water

Directions:

  1. In a small pot, bring all of the ingredients to a boil.
  2. Bring down to a simmer and cover, cooking for about 8 minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  3. Pour the apples through a strainer to get rid of the excess liquid. If you like you can mash the apples a bit before serving to give a smoother texture. Dump into a bowl and enjoy!

I think that today is actually the first day of fall, so it’s the perfect time to make and enjoy this recipe! Have a good week;))
