Perfectly Pumpkin Chocolate Bread!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

It's that time of year for all the pumpkin things!  I look forward to making pumpkin bread every year.  This year I googled what was the most popular pumpkin bread and the top recipe has 3 cups of sugar - I repeat THREE cups in ONE loaf of bread!  Why oh WHY on earth would you ever want something with that much sugar?  There is NO reason ever to have 3 cups of sugar in one loaf of bread.  That's absurd and quite possibly, what is wrong with today's weight issues.   This recipe is gluten-free (if you want it to be), low on sugar and absolutely delicious!  Please see notes below.*

Ingredients - 

7 oz cup of Buckwheat Flour
8 oz of Oat Flour * (see notes)
2 teas baking powder
3 heaping teas of pumpkin spice
1 teas of Ceylon Cinnamon

3 eggs
4 oz brown sugar
15 oz - Pumpkin
4 oz grass fed butter - room temp

2 oz almond milk (no additives)

Chocolate Chips or Chunks - 1 cup and extra for topping




Bake - 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix dry ingredients
Mix eggs, sugar, pumpkin and butter together
Add-in dry ingredients into wet
Mix until fluffy
Add-in 2 oz of almond milk
Mix - batter should be fluffy
Add-in Chocolate Chips/Chunks
Top with Chocolate Chips 


Pour into your bread loaf pan.  I use unbleached parchment with mine.
Bake for 35-40 minutes until knife comes out clean.

Cool slightly but then feel free to grab a coffee and enjoy! 
My Notes:

I do not normally post recipes until I have pictures I am happy with.  However, I have had so many emails for this and DMs from my Insta-Story Sneak Peak that I'm posting now.  Pictures will be replaced when ready.  You're welcome! ;)

I am obsessed with Buckwheat Flour right now, which is not wheat, but a fruit seed relating to rhubarb.  I also love oat flour, which is gluten-free, as well as buckwheat.  If you don't want or need gluten-free - spelt flour is my favorite flour to bake with.  Spelt is very gentle on your system, digests well and is delicious! 

As always - Ingredients Matter!  Never think your ingredients do not matter.  Food matters more than your new 'improved' iPhone or anything else!

I use organic and non-GMO ingredients - always!
Simply Organic Spices, Bobs Red Mill and Arrowhead Flours are amazing.
For Spelt Flour - One Organic
