Ingredients

Bread

  • 1 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 tsp. vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted (plus extra unmelted for greasing pan)
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 - 1 Tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).
  • Add vinegar or lemon juice to milk and set aside while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Grease a bread loaf pan with coconut oil and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir flour, salt, baking soda, and spices together. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl mix sugar, eggs, and pumpkin together. Add milk and coconut oil and mix until well blended. Stir in orange zest and pecans.
  • Pour batter into greased baking pan and bake in preheated oven for 50 minutes to 1 hour until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out without any batter on it. Let loaf cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing and cooling fully on a wire rack.
  • Once bread is fully cooled, whisk glaze ingredients together adding orange juice a little at a time until thick but still pourable. Drizzle over bread and let glaze harden for 10 - 15 minutes before slicing.
