One cup almonds or walnuts (or a mix!), chopped or blended
1 cup flour - to make gluten free, use a mix of what is available (buckwheat, corn, chickpea, for example)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon each: baking soda, baking powder, sea salt, and cinnamon
1/3 teaspoon each: ginger powder and nutmeg
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large ripe banana
3 cups cooked pumpkin (chopped into small pieces or mashed together)
1 cup raisins
Directions: Mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt and cinnamon, ginger) together in a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients (olive oil, mashed banana, and vanilla) in another bowl. Add the wet to dry ingredients, stir until just combined. Add the pumpkin, golden raisins, and nuts, stir together until the batter is smooth.
Scoop the batter into a lightly oiled bread pan. Bake about 30-35 minutes at 180 C. Use a toothpick in the center of the pan to check - when it comes out clean, the pumpkin bread is done! If the center is still a bit gooey, feel free to put back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
