  • 1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Mist a 9x5 inch loaf pan with oil.
    2. Add the eggs, milk, pumpkin, oil, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla to a medium bowl and whisk until combined. 
    3. Add the flours, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, and baking powder to a large bowl and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined. Gently fold in the pomegranate seeds (do not overmix). 
    4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and tap the bottom a few times on the counter to even everything out. Bake on a middle rack for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (60 minutes will result in a super moist, cake like consistency; 65-plus minutes will still create a moist but firmer consistency. Both textures are delicious). Let the bread cool for at least 10 minutes. Slice and serve with pomegranate seeds.
