I haven't tried this, but perhaps I will make it over the Christmas holiday...

Show: Low Carb and Lovin' It
Episode: Holiday Dinner

Prep Time:15 min
Inactive Prep Time: hr min
Cook Time: 1 hr 30 min
Level: Easy

Serves: 12 servingsVegetable oil spray, as needed 2 tablespoons wheat bran 2 1/2 cups almond flour 1 1/2 cups sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda) 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1/4 teaspoon salt 7 eggs 1 1/2 cups canned pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling) 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (no sugar added, imitation is usually best)
Equipment: 9 by 5-inch loaf pan

Serving Suggestion: homemade sugarless whipped cream

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Spray the loaf pan heavily with vegetable spray and sprinkle with the wheat bran, shaking the pan to coat on all sides--this will prevent sticking.
In a bowl whisk together the almond flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, pie spice, and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs and then whisk in the pumpkin and vanilla. Combine the dry and wet ingredients and stir until combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and stir to combine.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when stuck in the center, about 1 1/2 hours. Cool completely before removing from the pan. Slice into 12 portions.
