OrganicPumpkin Bread

I made this very moist and delicious Pumpkin Bread using only 1 tsp of Coconut Oil the (glass) pan. Sometimes I use butter but I try to limit my intake of saturated animal fats. I now use oils such as organic, virgin coconut oil or extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil. I also use Organic Earth Balance when cooking baked goods for people who are watching their cholesterol intake. 
Also, for gluten free baking, I prefer almond flour to coconut flour because of the taste and consistency. I made some today using 1 tsp of coconut oil to grease the pan and I sprinkled another tsp on top before baking and a drizzle of raw honey
Preheat oven to 350
