Gooey Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf

This recipe is modeled and lightly tweaked off my Healthy Pumpkin Bread recipe that I posted back in the fall.  Although fall is long gone, I find pumpkin bread delicious throughout the year, so I just worked on a vegan option, which is equally delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 1 C Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 Flax Eggs (2 tbsp ground flax + 6 tbsp warm water), or 2 regular eggs for non-vegan
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 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 powder
  • 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. Make flax eggs and allow to gel in fridge for 5 minutes.
  2. Mash banana in a bowl. Combine pumpkin, flax eggs, and maple syrup (if using) 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. Fold chocolate chips and any nut/seeds 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, for a raw, mushy consistency, or 30 – 32 min, for a more solid bread.
