A few years back I came across some chocolate pumpkin bread at a local grocery store and it was filled with unsavory ingredients but alas, I gave into the urge and purchased it. Well this weekend I was thinking about that delicious, gluten filled, preservative ridden, GMO concoction called Chocolate Pumpkin Bread and I thought to myself…”I bet I could make a gluten free version!”
So to google I went and searched for a recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Bread. I found several that had chocolate chips but the bread itself was not chocolate and I was simply not interested in that. Finally I came across a site What Megan’s Making and it looked like it would be what my mind was envisioning. I printed it out and changed a few things to my liking and of course converted it to gluten free. You can see the original recipe by clicking here!
My Gluten Free Version
3 3/4 cups of gluten free all purpose flour (my favorite is Gluten Free Mama Almond Blend)
3 1/2 cups organic cane sugar
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground clove
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 organic eggs
1 can organic pumpkin purée
1 1/4 cups melted grass fed butter or NON GMO canola oil if you must use canola
3 oz melted unsweetened chocolate
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven 350 degrees
In one bowl wisk together all dry ingredients. In a separate bowl stir together all remaining ingredients except chips. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until incorporated, make sure to scrape the bottom and sides. Fold in the chips last. Rub butter on all sides of 2 or 3 loaf pans. This will make 3 smaller loaves or 2 normal size bread loaves.
Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. It took 75 for mine but everyone’s ovens heat differently so check after an hour.
I like to eat it warm and slathered with grassfed butter! Yum!
I used a stone loaf pan from the Pampered Chef. I am a consultant for then and therefore will benefit from promoting and or selling this product. If you want to buy a stone loaf pan, check it out on my personal Pampered Chef Website
