  • 1/2 C coconut oil
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1 C pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs room temp
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1.5 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp baking powder


  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 C. powdered sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your loaf pan -- mine is 9 x 5 x 3. Sprinkle a little flour in the bottom of the pan and give it a nice shake to give the bottom of pan an even coating.
  • In your mixer, combine the coconut oil, sugar, pumpkin, eggs, and molasses, Stir to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients - flour, sea salt, spices and baking powder and stir just until combined. Do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the greased and floured loaf pan and level the top. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the bread to cool for 30 minutes, then run a knife around the inside of the pan, and turn out to remove.
  • Allow the loaf to cool completely before icing.
  • To make the icing: add the powdered sugar, maple syrup, milk and extract to your mixer and whip until combined - the icing should not be too thin, but should be thinner than a thick paste. Feel free to add more maple syrup or milk to taste (as needed).
  • Spread the icing out on the loaf evenly and allow to set before you wrap or cut.
