  1. Preheat oven at 350. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper
  2. Combine almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside
  3. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients; flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and spices
  4. In a separate bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients; pumpkin, coconut oil, and orange juice
  5. Pour the pumpkin and almond milk mixture into the large bowl of dry ingredients. Mix well by hand (using an electric mixer will over mix the batter and will make your loaf very dense!)
  6. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts
  7. Once mixed, transfer the batter into the baking pan (if your batter looks a little thick that’s ok!)
  8. Sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top
  9. Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean
