Healthy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread {GF, SF, Vegan Option}

Hello Fall!

IMG_0262

I know there is an overwhelming amount of pumpkin recipes out there right now, (I know, I’m guilty myself: these paleo pumpkin cookies, pumpkin turmeric breakfast cookies, and pumpkin peanut-butter freezer fudge), but trust me when I say THIS IS THE BEST ONE. If you are only going to make one pumpkin-inspired recipe this season, I highly recommend it be this one.

Why this one?

  • Only 5 ingredients
  • Super easy to make, almost impossible to mess up actually
  • Can eat for breakfast OR snack OR dessert, so it’s very multi-functional
  • Its gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free, so you won’t have any slumps after you eat a piece (or 5)
  • The gorgeous orange color will make you happy
  • Your home will smell amazing while it bakes
  • Do you really need more convincing?

This recipe is adapted from my 5-ingredient Blender Banana Bread, subbing out the banana for pumpkin. If you are more of a banana lover, I recommend you check that recipe out!

Ingredients:

  • 1 C Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature (can sub flax eggs)
  • 2 – 4 Tbsp. Maple Syrup (Optional. If prefer totally sugar-free, leave out!)
  • 2 C Oats, ground into a flour-like consistency
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (if you don’t have, use nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, or more cinnamon)
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Dash of salt
  • Optional add-ins: chocolate chips, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, etc.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×5 loaf pan.
  2. Combine pumpkin, eggs, and maple syrup in a bowl.
  3. Add oat flour, baking soda, and spices into bowl and fold into wet mixture. I like to use a Silicone Spatula for this.
  4. If using add-ins, (I used walnuts and chocolate chips in the photos), fold them into the batter once its all combined.
  5. Pour into loaf dish, top with some more add-ins for presentation, and bake for 25 – 27 minutes, until knife inserted comes out clean.

    Hi there – this looks delish, can’t wait to try. It says in the directions to combine the pumpkin, eggs, and maple syrup in a bowl, but I’m not seeing eggs (or even a flax egg) on the ingredients. Are the directions incorrect or what’s the missing ingredient?

    Thanks!
