Allergy Friendly | Grain Free Pumpkin Nut Bread

Making allergy free food choices has become almost automatic for me most of the time. I know what I need to buy at the grocery store. I know what meals I need to cook. The one area I still struggle with is finding things that are allergy friendly for everyone in the house to snack on. Sarah cannot have gluten and I’m paleo and there are times we really want something allergy friendly. Yes, we can grab fresh fruit and vegetables. Yes, we can grab a handful of nuts or pumpkin seeds. What we really want is something that reminds us of the comfort foods we used to eat. We want pumpkin bread or cheesecake.

Allergy Friendly | Grain Free Pumpkin Nut Bread

While I can’t help you with the cheesecake (yet), I can help you with the pumpkin bread. This Grain Free Pumpkin Nut Bread is surprisingly similar to the pumpkin bread I have enjoyed in the past. The nuts are totally optional so if nuts are an allergy, leave them out. Depending on your preferences, you can add in some healthy soy free dark chocolate chips instead of the nuts.

I created this Grain Free Pumpkin Nut Bread using MELT® Organic spread. If you haven’t heard of MELT Organic spread yet, let me tell you more. MELT Organic is a lactose free, soy free buttery spread. It’s organic and non-GMO verified. It’s even Fair Trade! If you’re following the Weight Watchers plan, it’s 3 PointsPlus per serving. It features Virgin Coconut Oil and is a great option for those who are looking for a lactose free option that is also soy free. Best of all, you use it the same way you would use butter. It’s made from the Perfect Blend of “good fats” like Virgin Coconut and Flax Seed oils

I love the taste and the flavor that MELT Organic ads to my food. Most of all, I love the healthy reasons to use it. It comes and Rich & Creamy (which I used in this recipe) as well as Honey and Chocolate flavors. I haven’t tried the Chocolate flavor yet but I can tell you that my son enjoys the Honey flavor on his English muffin in the morning. If you’re looking for a delicious spread, this is it.

Find MELT Organic in a store near you. For my local readers, I buy it at Shaws.
