    I didn’t plan on making a pumpkin loaf this year but after seeing your reaction over that Dark Chocolate Marble Sweet Potato Loaf, I couldn’t resist. Plus a handful of you were asking when it was coming and I always do my best to create the recipes that YOU are looking for and get excited about.

    This Easy Paleo Pecan Crumble Pumpkin Loaf is the ultimate sweet pumpkin-y loaf. It has a pecan crumble on top that is too die for.

    I use all paleo ingredients for this loaf making it gluten, grain and dairy-free. It is also nut free-friendly if you use sunflower seed butter and coconut milk instead of the almond milk you’ll see below. Plus this loaf has zero refined sugars despite the sweet pecan crumble topping!

    I also add collagen peptides to the loaf for an extra nutritional boost. I have collagen peptides every single day in one form or another. I usually add it to my smoothies, hot tea, anything. I use the unflavored varieties for the most part so I can switch up how I consume it. You don’t even taste it and I am sitting here eating pumpkin bread that is actually doing my hair, skin, nails and digestion some good!

      Hi, this looks amazing but what do you recommend as a substitute for the collagen peptides?

      I know Celina asked this—what can we use as a substitute for collagen peptides? I made it without and it was too moist!

      Can I use protein powder as a substitute for the collagen peptides? If not, what’s a good substitute?

        no because protein powder doesn’t dissolve like collagen does. i’d omit entirely if you don’t have collagen!
