Clean Eating Pumpkin Bread

This is a recipe I came up with to accomodate my family's sensitivities.  It is made with Spelt flour and sCoconut Palm Sugar.  Coconut Palm sugar is a healthier option because of its potassium, iron and vitamin content.  We exclusively use this sugar in our home.  This is still sugar and should be used in moderation.  Here is a clip from Dr. Oz coconut palm sugar:


Coconut Palm Sugar also has a low glycemic index.  Here is an explanation:


1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup Coconut Palm Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1/4 Cup Water
1 tsp Vanilla
1 3/4 Cup All Purpose Spelt Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp Cinnamon

Combine Coconut oil and Sugar with mixer.  Once combined, add eggs, pumpkin puree, water and vanilla.  Combine dry ingredients in a seperate bowl.  Add ingredients to mixer.  transfer to a loaf pan and bake @ 350 for 50 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack.
