Paleo Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon Honey Butter

One of the perks of being this far along in my pregnancy (39 weeks) is that my nesting urge is in full force! Which means I've been busy trying new recipes and finding some that we really love.

Since we cut out most grains from our diet and went gluten free, I do miss bread on occasion so when I find a good alternative to add to my recipe book it's always a little exciting :)

Simple ingredients, quick to make.

The finished product is a dense, moist bread that you and your family are sure to love this Fall season and beyond!

The bread isn't super sweet (which is ok!) but I wanted to add a bit more sweetness so I whipped up a cinnamon honey butter spread and it was exactly what this yummy pumpkin bread needed! The ingredients? Exactly what it's called haha: a spoonful of grass fed butter (we love kerrygold), a drizzle of raw honey, and a dash of cinnamon mixed up in a small dish so you can store what you don't use right away. I'm not one to measure everything so you can adjust the ingredients to your liking.

Hope you enjoy this as much as my family and I did! Happy Pumpkin Season :)
