Hey, so it’s officially October and perfectly acceptable to dive into all things pumpkin, right?!  I was ahead of the game posting recipes in September, but I couldn’t help myself.  This is my absolute favorite time of year!

When the weather cools down a bit, I look forward to cozy hearty fall meals like beef stout stew, quick French onion soup, and homemade breads.  It’s the calm before the holiday frenzy that I cherish as well.

My days are fairly under control, but gosh I can feel when I start to pick up the stress of everyone around me anticipating holiday shopping, and general hustle in our grocery stores, parking lots, and throughout the neighborhood and work.

Many years back I consciously made an effort to give myself a break from my own expectations, and have brought back the fun of the holiday season.  If I only bake 4 dozen cookies instead of 12, then so be it!  If a gift didn’t arrive on time.  It’s OK!

All the ingredients you need to make sugar free pumpkin bread. No yeast or special proofing methods required #Pumpkin #GlutenFree #Bread |ww.thefoodieaffair.com

But it does feel great when I get organized and prep food in advance, so I have started to freeze the pressure cooker pumpkin puree.  I hope to have a stash build up to use for months!

I have been freezing 1/4 cup portions of the pumpkin and have already blended up a pumpkin pie spice smoothie, except I varied the recipe, again!  See, the three versions that I usually make wasn’t low carb.

My mouth is watering just thinking about how delicious that smoothie is.  Lot’s of healthy ingredients, but it tastes like a rich tasting milkshake.  I will share it soon!

Fresh out of the oven this sugar free pumpkin bread tastes delicious! #QuickBread #Bread #Bake | www.thefoodieaffair.com

In the meantime, you will love how your house smells while baking a loaf of sugar free pumpkin bread!  It was so hard to wait for the bread to cool so that I could slice it up!

For this recipe I added walnuts.  I love the texture it adds to the bread and I only incorporated 1/3 cup including the sprinkle I added on top.  Add more or less to suit your preference.

The other ingredient I added to this recipe is a smidgen of maple extract!  I love the earthy flavor that comes though with the pumpkin spices.  Don’t skip that.  It’s a delicious addition.

After smelling this delicious sugar free pumpkin bread it will be hard to wait for the first slice! #QuickBread #Bread #pumpkin | www.thefoodieaffair.com

The loaf pan I use is not the standard 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ shape.  I used a 9″ x4″ pan, which allowed for about 12 servings once cut.

Enjoy a slice of this sugar free pumpkin bread right out of the oven or toast a slice and lather some nut butter or sugar free pumpkin spice butter over it.

Sugar free pumpkin bread packed with real pumpkin puree and fall spices. Enjoy a slice with your favorite nut butter! #PumpkinSpice #Bread #Fall

    Looks like a really tasty version of pumpkin bread, and without refined sugar is great. Good tip to freeze the pumpkin puree, instead of having a frenzy in the kitchen trying to make as many things as possible with all the pumpkin.
