This paleo sweet potato gingerbread is the perfect gluten-free treat for the holiday season! It’s made with almond flour, sweet potato, and other real food ingredients.


  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tbsp blackstrap molasses
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup canned sweet potato puree (made sweet potato should also work)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch (or sub arrowroot starch)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

For the glaze/drizzle

  • 1/4 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a 9×5″ loaf pan with greased parchment paper.
  2. Using a large bowl combine the coconut oil, coconut sugar, and molasses. Stir well until incorporated. Add the remainder of the wet ingredients and fully combine.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to a separate bowl, and mix well, ensuring there are no clumps of flour.
  4. Mix the dry and wet ingredients and thoroughly combine.
  5. Pour into the loaf pan, using a rubber spatula to flatten the top of the bread. Transfer to the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until fully baked through.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to set in the pan for 5 minutes before carefully transferring to a cooling rack to cool for another 10 minutes.
  7. Drizzle with coconut butter and top with cinnamon before slicing and serving.
