Ingredients

    Cream Filling:
    6 oz. softened neufchatel cheese (or light cream cheese)
    1/4 cup splenda OR stevia
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 egg white
    1 tbsp. water
    1 tbsp. coconut flour

    Bread- Dry Ingredients:
    1 cup almond flour
    1/4 cup coconut flour
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
    2 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
    1/2 tsp. salt

    Bread - Wet Ingredients
    1/4 cup applesauce
    1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    4 eggs
    2 tbsp. maple syrup

Directions

Place all of the cream filling ingredients in a bowl and mix with an eletric mixer. Set aside.

Heat the oven to 350.

Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the applesauce and pumpkin puree with an electric hand mixer on slow speed. Slowly drizzle in the melted butter, continuing to mix thoroughly. Add the maple syrup and blend.

Pour the pumpkin mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Because there is no wheat flour in the recipe, feel free to blend this until completely mixed and lump-free.

Pour half of the batter into a greased loaf pan, smoothing it so that the batter is slightly bowl-shaped. Fill the bowl with the cream filling. Add the remaining bread batter and smooth out as best you can.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until it passes the "pillow test." (a toothpick won't work)
