Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF and line a 9" loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the flax egg by adding 1 tbsp of flax meal to 3 tbsp of water. Let it sit for 5 minutes until a yolky consistency has formed.
  3. Melt the coconut oil and let it cool slightly. Then combine the flax egg, molasses, milk, oil, pumpkin puree and vanilla to a bowl. Mix until combined.
  4. Add all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and whisk together. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry. Stir until it's just combined. Option to fold in any nuts or chocolate at this point.
  5. Add the loaf batter to the loaf pan and spread it out evenly. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes. Then turn the temperature down to 350ºF without opening the oven and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes. Until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is slightly crispy (not burnt though).
  6. Let the loaf cool in the pan for at least ten minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack to completely cool before slicing.
  7. Store leftovers in a sealed container on the counter top.
