This paleo pumpkin bread recipe from Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind is perfect for fall.
Pumpkin bread is just one of the drool-worthy treats in this new cookbook by Vanessa Barajas. Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind is pure food porn. Donuts, cookies, cake, ice cream, marshmallow — if you crave it, it's probably in this book. Vanessa has a knack for recreating traditional favorites with paleo-friendly ingredients.
There's something for everyone in this cookbook, sweet and savory alike. It includes savory comfort foods like Pizza Soup, Bacon Cheeseburger Stuffed Potatoes, and Pulled Pork Nachos. But the real heart of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind is the desserts.
These recipes are just in time for holiday baking. There's a whole chapter on cookies, including Soft and Chewy Gingerbread, Paleo Moonpies, and Chocolate Turtle Thumbprints. One on confections like Cookie Dough Fudge and Salted Caramel Cups. And several pie crusts from Fauxreo to Old-Fashioned Flaky Pie Crust.
Vanessa provides recipes for a variety of dietary restrictions, including some that are egg-free, dairy-free, and nut-free. She even created two versions of Marshmallow Crème — one with egg whites and one without. There are so many indulgent recipes, you won't miss the real thing.
I baked the pumpkin bread for friends at the cottage last week. It was the perfect start to fall, and this spicy pumpkin bread was a real crowd-pleaser.
