This pumpkin acorn bread is just amazing. It’s dark, from the acorn flour, which will look like chocolate to your kids. And hidden inside is the pumpkin! Win, win, right? My ten year old just loves it.
I didn’t use just straight acorn flour, because most of us aren’t used to it. I mean, you can’t like just go to the store and buy it. So if you haven’t read my post on how to make acorn flour, you can read it here. At any rate, all of my recipes here are grain-free, but if you want to know why, read my post here. And as always, I got inspiration for this recipe here.
Let’s get baking! Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, prepare your pan. I always use parchment paper because its so easy to make a perfect loaf without holes in the bottom. I’m sure that’s never happened to you. I spray my pan first, just to make the paper stick. And then I line the bottom with the paper.
I combined all the flours in a bowl and tossed them with a couple of forks. This is very important for grain-free, gluten-free baking.
Combine the rest of the dry ingredients with the flour.
Now make a well and put all the wet ingredients in it.
Using your whisk, mix wet ingredients. It’s so nice this only uses one bowl.
Slowly add in the flour mixture from the sides.
Pour into prepared pan, scraping the sides of the bowl.
Bake for 55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool for 5 minutes in the pan, and then remove.
