Paleo Pumpkin Bread
Paleo pumpkin bread recipe & content provided by Joshua Weissman
This paleo pumpkin bread reminds me of my childhood living in California — a place that felt like a galaxy away from the majority of my family in Texas. I remember always wanting visit them, especially with all the stories my mom would tell me. Baked goods were our way to connect from afar.

One of the most exciting times of the year for me was autumn, when I would await the highly coveted family gift mail delivery. This delivery came every year on the dot, no matter what. It wasn’t just some box full of “things.” This was a box full of home-baked foods that built my passion for food and cooking, including a pumpkin bread my grandmother and those before her had made.
I still get excited about that pumpkin bread — and this paleo version was inspired by my grandmother’s original recipe. Enjoy this pumpkin bread with a warm cup of coffee, cozied up with your family and friends.
