Sonoma County, CA. ~ You can use fresh or canned pump- kin in this recipe. Either way, it makes a wonderful break- fast bread, mid-day snack, or dessert for your Thanksgiving guests. Serve with your favor- ite dairy or non-dairy cream cheese.


¼ cup olive or melted coconut oil plus some for greasing pan 1½ cups white whole wheat flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon ground cloves ½ cup sugar

½ cup apple sauce 1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin pulp 2 pasture raised eggs

½ cup English walnuts, chopped DIRECTIONS:

Generously grease an 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. To make pumpkin pulp from fresh pumpkin, line a shallow roasting pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Cut the pumpkin in half, remove seeds and strings, and place the hollow side down in the roasting pan. Bake for 45 minutes or until soft. Cool and scrape the pulp out with a large spoon. Place the pulp in a colander and drain off the excess liquid. Reserve 1 cup of pulp for this rec- ipe. Use the remaining pulp for pumpkin pie or pumpkin soup. Or, if you prefer, use 1

kin pulp and eggs and beat again until well combined. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and beat with the electric mixer until well combined. Fold in the walnuts.

Pour into the prepared loaf

pan and bake until a tooth- pick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit in the pan for 15 minutes on a metal rack; then, remove from the pan and let the loaf cool on the rack for another 15 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.

Serve warm and enjoy! YIELD
