What better use of a pumpkin than to make a grain free bread? Here is a recipe for amazing Paleo Pumpkin Bread!

Use Any Pumpkin or Winter Squash to Make Pumpkin Bread

I decided to use a cheese pumpkin.

It has nothing to do with cheese.

It’s named for the shape – just like a ring of cheese.

I wish I could eat cheese, but it does not agree with me – even raw aged cheeses. But I love this cheese pumpkin because there is so much to do with it!

I used to make pumpkin bread with regular wheat and canned pumpkin.

But those days are long gone.

This recipe is grain, dairy, refined sugar, and soy free.

It is moist, delicious and satisfying and in my humble opinion, it is much better than the wheat version I used to bake!
