Pumpkin Bread - seasonal eating for good health and the environment

September 11, 2018

 

I love eating seasonally especially in the autumn when there is such an abundance of sun-ripened fruit and veg.   Eating home or locally-grown produce is not only good for you but it's also good for the environment reducing the energy required to transport it, store it or force-grow it out of season.

 

This pumpkin bread recipe is one of my favourites as it's so easy and tastes of autumn.  So here you go:

 

1 cup mashed pumpkin

1 cup apple purée

1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar

1/2 cup olive oil

2 eggs

1 cup white flour and 1/3 whole wheat flour

1/3 cup oats

1 tsp baking soda and 3/4 tsp salt

As much cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice as you like

 

 

 

-Whisk dry ingredients in one bowl and mix wet in another and then combine, stirring just until  blended. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes.

 

Decorate with some dehydrated apples and icing sugar.
