Trust me, this bread it´s amazing, the smell was in all my house, the neighbors asked me what was baking? they wanted a slice of it.  For my taste, it´s more delicious than the pumpkin puree bread, pleasing nutty and earthy flavors, it´s wet and airy. This is not a sweet bread, but you can change the ratio of the sweetener if you like it.

In my mind, I can recreate when I was a young girl, my father gathering some of the pumpkin seeds and putting them to dry in the sun, and then he roasted them in a pan.

As the majority of you, I like much the pumpkin seeds, they are a tasty treat and also a good healthy option because they have powerful nutritional values to include in our diet.

Some months ago, I bought a  cheaper package of organic pumpkin seeds from Amazon but were unroasted, that no worry me, I can roast them at the moment, 170 F for about 20 minutes is enough, so I was using them to other recipes also like this one.

They are very versatile both for salty and sweet foods, as well as a snack, but I did not realize to make a bread or muffin recipe with their flour until I saw this information shared for Jesse Schwartz, President of Living Tree Community Foods on Linkedin, since then, I have been wondering how would I develop a recipe for the entire family, we all need healthy options for our loved ones and for us to combat the obesity and health issues.

This is my result, but feel free to change anything, including other gluten-free flours to work with.

    You like it sweeter? adjust it, change for erythritol, swerve or 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar, etc
