Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Spice Bread

Serves: 10

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I worked on Saturday but had a productive and relaxing Sunday! It was great! I know we are not officially into fall yet, but I just couldn’t hold out on sharing this recipe with you any longer! I have been eating pumpkin for the last few months, so the pumpkin recipes are abundant! πŸ™‚ I figured since we are 9 days into September now it was OK to start sharing them with you! πŸ˜‰ I hope you enjoy! Have a great start to your week!

Chocolate and my favorite fall flavors together?! Absolutely delicious!!! There isn’t a better way to kick off the fall baking season than with this easy to make and healthy bread! It packs great for work too! I brought in the remaining loaf for some co workers and it was a hit! πŸ™‚

  • I wish I had this recipe yesterday! Although I'm out of pumpkin so I'll have to pick some up this week and give it a go! :)

  • Ohh my goodness. I'm definitely making this this weekend! I'm a diehard pumpkin lover - it's never too early for pumpkin! (although I did see "Winter Wonderland" ice cream on sale at my grocery store ... in Texas ... this weekend, and I think THAT is a little early!)

      • I am eating these right now - I made them as muffins and they're delicious! I don't love the way Vega protein powder (which I used) bakes, but the recipe is still great! Thanks!

  • Ahh that bread looks delicious! I've never tried cinnamon protein powder but I may have to get some just for this. In my opinion, pumpkin is acceptable starting September 1, mostly because August reminds me of hot, humid summer weather. As far as workout songs, I've enjoyed working out to Holy Grail, especially with interval training because it starts slow and gets faster.

    Can I use a vegan protein powder? I hope so... Also, is it moist, chewy or dense? I think I can actually make this...maybe muffins? Eat with eggs? or nut butter or whatever?

  • Mary
    What can I use instead of the protein powder? And how much?
