Pumpkin bread with coconut flour

I have been eating this every morning for breakfast for the past month. I get 4 pieces with this recipe. I use a square container just like this one.

2 large eggs
2 heaping tablespoon pure canned pumpkin
3 tablespoons ideal brown (use how much sweetener you wish)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbl oil or melted butter
1/4 tsp vanilla
Stir well

a handful of walnuts or pecans (optional)

Once this has been completely blended (I use a fork) add 1/4 tsp xanthum gum to 2 1/2 tablespoon coconut flour.

Stir coconut flour into the the mixture above. It should be thickish but not stiff. Spray container and add mixture.

Microwave 3 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

Let cool (I stick it in the freezer for a bit)

optional frosting

2 ounces cream cheese
1 tbl butter
Soften in microwave for like 13 seconds

Stir
1/4 tsp vanilla
4 drops liquid splenda
1 tablespoon powdered erythritol. (might do fine without this but it makes it more smooth)

Frost bread. Slice in 4 pieces refrigerate.

****I have found that the apple cider vinegar, xanthum gum with a pinch of salt helps this to rise better.

I really like this idea. Is it really good Skeeter. When I use coconut flour a lone it's very dense to me. I tried the 2 minute bread and didn't like it at all.

I'm going to try this and I'll let you know. Thanks for the recipe.

Coconut flour smells so good, but is slightly sweet and makes all my baked goods so dry. I will try this though

sorry to harp on this, but PLEASE don't microwave in plastic containers! I am convinced plastic exposure in food is the cause of a lot of diabetes and other metabolic disorders. if you are overweight, you don't need a WORSE metabolism. research this if you think I'm being paranoid. I'm not one to be wary of a lot of things like this.

It is dense but for this it isn't a bad texture. Well for me it isn't.

I have found when it is too dry, I am using too much coconut flour. But with the pumpkin in this, it does help with the moistness too.

Do you feel the same about cooking bags too? I will look for square containers in glass but I break glass so easy and cannot seem to keep them around very long. At least plastic bounces when dropped

Omg I do this all the time! I will stop now. I'll use a regular drinking glass to defrost berries from now on.

What are the dimensions of that container? I have a bunch of glass ones and would like to try this recipe. I don't nuke in plastic anymore either.

I don't think the size really matters. this one is probably 5 X 5 but just experiment.
