Happy Halloween for yesterday!

I hope you had an amazing time whatever you had planned! For me, I'm not a huge Halloween fan, so instead I stayed in and baked something delicious instead. BUT it was pumpkin spice that counts right?!

I based the recipe on The Pumpkin Loaf from TheSimpleVeganista but I made a few alterations to suit my taste and the ingredients I had.                                                                                          
Here is exactly what I used:

·         2 cups wholemeal flour
·         1/3 cup dates (pitted and chopped)
·         2 teaspoons baking powder
·         1/2 teaspoon baking soda
·         2 teaspoons mixed spice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon
·         pinch of mineral salt
·         1- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
·         1/3 cup maple syrup 
·         1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
·          1 can 100% pumpkin purée 

What to do:

Preheat your oven to 180°C
In a medium size bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt. In a small bowl, combine oil, dates, maple syrup and vanilla. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture along with the pumpkin purée and mix well. Don’t over mix but be sure there is no flour clumps. Pour the batter into a lightly greased loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once done, remove from oven, let cool slightly before serving and enjoy! Let cool completely before storing.
