Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf


Pumpkin Loaf

(Makes 1 loaf)


  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (** gluten free use alt flour: rice, almond, coconut)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup grain sweetened chocolate chips (non-dairy chips for those avoiding dairy)
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup honey (I used ½ cup + ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce)
  • 1 tablespoon molasses (I used 1 Tbsp nut butter)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together your flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate chips (basically, all your dry ingredients).
  3. In a second mixing bowl, whisk together your pumpkin, honey, molasses, egg, egg whites and vanilla (basically, all your wet ingredients).
  4. Now, blend the dry mixture into the wet mixture, a little at a time.
  5. Pour the batter into an oiled loaf pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until a cake tester (like a toothpick) comes out clean when you stick it in the middle. If you have to bake it longer than 40 minutes, loosely place a piece of foil over the top so the top doesn’t burn. Check every 10 minutes until done.
