That’s right. You read the title correctly.

PUMPKIN baby!

I figured it’s the last week of September and we are almost to the 1st day of fall so it’s time. I went ahead and gave myself permission to post the first pumpkin recipe of the year. It’s official!

Fall is here.

Although, if I’m being frank with you I’m still drinking Iced Lattes down here because it’s 90+ degrees outside. I haven’t whipped out the boots and scarves yet. Nor have I seen the leaves changing color. Oh how I miss those days.

Fall was my favorite time of year in Wisconsin. The leaves changing color and cool crisp air. Yup, you can’t beat it.

The other day I made an Autumn Squash Soup (which is coming soon) and as Mike was eating it he said “babe, this is great but it’s like 100 degrees outside. Not exactly soup weather.” Ugh… someday. Someday we won’t have butt sweat when we walk outside. haha

Until then I’ll be stuffing this delicious Pumpkin Bread in my face and dreaming of cooler days.

I will say, opening the can of pumpkin puree made me do a little happy dance. And knowing that I was going to be able to devour said pumpkin bread filled with warm melted chocolate chips made me dance a little harder and move a little faster!

When I was making this bread I kept going back and forth on whether I was going to use almond flour or whole wheat flour. I landed on the whole wheat because honestly, I wasn’t quite sure how the almond flour texture was going to be with this bread. And I wanted the bread to rise nicely… so whole wheat it was.

This Pumpkin Bread is also refined sugar free!

The pumpkin puree, maple syrup and coconut oil help ensure that this bread stays nice and moist. Which in my opinion, is a must if you want to have good bread. Dry bread is just gross and crumbly.

My absolute favorite bite of this pumpkin bread is right after is comes out of the oven. To the point where even the chocolate chips melt on your fingers as you hold the bread.. and then I like to take a big bite off the top. You know the crunchy part. Ahhh… best bite ever! My husband likes to put a little butter on it, but I love it plain or served with a warm cup of coffee. It’s perfection! Now, I just need the cool crisp air and I’ll be all set!

Welcome to fall y’all. I hope you enjoy this pumpkin recipe as much as we did!

Bon Appetit friends!
