Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bread

I'm really not sure why loving pumpkin makes you a "basic bitch", but since I loved pumpkin way before it became cool, I'm excluding myself from that hashtag. Plus, this bread is far from basic. It's moist and pumpkin-y and perfect for fall.

 I used baked kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin) for this recipe, but regular pumpkin should work fine (or even baked butternut squash). 


Peanut Butter Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients:

2 flax eggs (2 regular eggs works fine too!)
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup millet flour
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup baking stevia
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup cooked kabocha squash
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk (or any milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. To make the flax eggs, mix the flax seed with 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
3. Add the flax eggs and remaining ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (don't overmix!).
4. Add to a small loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Allow to cool, then cut into 8 pieces. Enjoy!
