Welcome to Pumpkin Week 2015!!
(We will resume regularly scheduled Music Monday programming next week…) 😉
In case you missed last week’s announcement, here’s a bit about Pumpkin Week:
Join 6 awesome bloggers as we share pumpkin recipes on our blogs and social media for one pumpkin-y week ending in a giant pumpkin recipe link-up on Friday!

To make this even more exciting for me, I’ve teamed up with my friends at Simple Mills for a tasty giveaway of their Pumpkin Muffin and Chocolate Muffin mixes!
Now before we get to giveaway, I’m going to tease you with a quick recipe (part 1 of a very special recipe I’m sharing as part of this team-up with Simple Mills). We’re going to start by taking the muffin mix and simply turning it into a loaf of bread. I guess if you really wanted you could stop there and enjoy a couple slices but I assure you, you’re going to want to see what I have in store for you on Wednesday, so don’t touch that loaf! 😉
One of the things I LOVE about Simple Mills is how they’re a baking mix that fits perfectly within the parameters of my diet and how I eat for my health (at least the majority of the time): grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, low-carb, and paleo! But I assure you, full of flavor and you will never miss all of those other ingredients!
This may seem like a no-brainer to take the muffin mix and turn it into a bread, but since there weren’t specific directions on the box, I had to figure it out.
How to make Paleo Pumpkin Bread:
- Pre-heat over to 350* as directed.
- Prepare mix to box directions with the same amount of eggs, water and oil.
- Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray (I used coconut oil spray) and pour in your batter.
- Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Let cool and don’t eat!
That last direction will probably be the hardest for you but I assure you, you want to wait until to see Wednesday’s recipe… 😉
