Grain Free Spiced Pumpkin and Apple Bread

Grain Free Spiced Pumpkin and Apple Bread

As hard as I've tried, I just cannot stay away from the pumpkin baked goods. There is a reason why everyone is so excited about them!! They are JUST. TOO. GOOD. This bread included. I made this with almond flour so it it completely grain free and is super low sugar because I only used 1 tablespoon of maple syrup to sweeten the entire loaf. You may have seen my dad call it, "holiday delicious," on my instagram and I have to agree. This thing would be a hit at any halloween/thanksgiving/homecoming/otherwise named fall event.
