Gluten Free Pumpkin Walnut Bread

Pumpkin Walnut Bread I wanted to make a delicious fall bread to snack on, and this really hit the spot. I added some walnuts and flax for a bit of texture and more kick. Feel free to omit the nuts, or swap them out for raisins if you prefer. I can see pumpkin raisin being good, however I’ll admit it – I’m not a huge raisin fan, but I do love nuts. I’d also been wanting to try one of the all purpose gluten free baking mixes, and I’m really quite pleased with how it worked with this.

Ingredients:
4 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl mix together the first five ingredients until blended, then add everything else except the walnuts and flaxseed and combine until fully blended. Stir in the walnuts and flaxseed. Either grease or line with parchment a bread loaf pan, and scoop the mixture in. Bake for 50 minutes.
