Philosophie Babe Recipe: Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Bread

We haven’t done a Philosophie Babe post here on the blog in a LONG time, but when our babe Amrit-Sadhana of Body Bliss Life shared this amazing pumpkin bread loaf we just HAD to share. With Thanksgiving behind us, what better way to use up the last of your pumpkin leftovers? AND..we still have a few bags left of our specially and lovingly blended Fall Vibes Superfood Blend to sprinkle all over this treat. 


Since Fall hit, I have felt a little more inspiration float back into my life. It feels so good to head into the kitchen with an idea in my head and just let myself do my thing. So in honor of this cool weather and pumpkin spice I created an adaptogenic (optional) Cinnamon Swirl Pumpkin Spice Bread. Yeah… you heard that right… it’s kind of insane. Here’s how I did it.


It’s warm, nourishing, hormone-balancing and gluten-free. So delicious and so perfect for those crisp mornings along with an adaptogenic latte.

 

Gather This:

WET INGREDIENTS - 

1 cup pumpkin puree

½ cup coconut sugar or lakanto monk fruit sweetener 

½ cup milk of choice

¼ cup coconut oil, melted

2 eggs or the equivalent of an egg replacer

1 tsp vanilla

DRY INGREDIENTS -

1 ½ cups gluten-free oat flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cardamom 

⅛ tsp allspice

¼ tsp salt

TOPPING - 

¼ cup oats

¼ cup coconut sugar

2 tbsp butter or coconut oil

1 tbsp Fall Vibes Pumpkin Pie Superfood Blend

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground cardamom

Do This:

Preheat the oven to 350℉ and grease a bread pan.

In a large bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and fold into wet ingredients. In a small bowl combine everything for the topping except the oats and butter. 

Pour half the batter into the bread pan. Sprinkle ½ the topping mixture over the batter. Pour remaining batter into pan. Using a knife, fold the batter to create the swirls. Add the oats and butter or oil to the remaining spice mixture. Break up with fingers until it’s crumbly. Top the batter with crumble and place in the oven. Back for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Place on a cooling rack and allow to cool for 30 minutes.

Though the Fall Blend is not required for this recipe, it’s a fun addition as it adds immunity-building and hormone-supporting Ashwagandha, bio-available vitamin E and sweetness from the spices.

Optional: microgreens


Do This:

While bread is toasting, make your hummus and slice your avocado. Spread sliced avo on half of toast and top with Green Dream, then on the other half spread your hummus and top with quinoa crisps. ENJOY!

Combined with the mood-enhancing and antioxidant-rich Cacao Magic, this is an elixir perfect for any time you need a little extra grounding.
