Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf (gluten, dairy and nut free)

Hi Friends! I should be picking out our family’s health plan for the upcoming year, but instead I am procrastinating and writing up this recipe for this Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf I made this week. With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we are riding this pumpkin train all the way to Turkey Day!

Did you know you can turn any muffin recipe into a loaf recipe? Probably… That’s just what I did here. I was going to make this recipe as muffins for easy grab and go treats, but I was out of parchment muffin tin liners (which are a KEY to nonstick paleo baking) so instead, I just made it as a loaf! Here is the recipe!

Fun Fact: Most paleo muffin/loaf recipes call for the same basic ingredients in the same quantities and just substitute out the flavorings. For example, if you omit the pumpkin & pumpkin pie spice and substitute in pureed apple & cinnamon you would have a totally different flavor profile!

How to Cook:

  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Use a loaf pan and line with parchment paper
  • Mix together the wet ingredients in a large bowl (eggs, coconut oil, pumpkin, syrup or honey)
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients mixing as you go (coconut flour, tapioca flour, pumpkin pie spice & baking soda)
  • Mix the chocolate chips in last
  • Optional: add in 1/2 cup of nuts for crunch!
  • Pour into the loaf pan and cook for 40-50 minutes until a wooden skewer comes out clean

To Serve:

  • Warm a slice on the griddle or frying pan, top with butter or ghee (if you can tolerate dairy) and Enjoy!

We’ve been enjoying this loaf little by little all week-long. After a couple of days out on the counter it is best to move it into the refrigerator. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
