Healthy pumpkin bread with chocolate chips

  • Healthy Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips is an all-time fan favorite recipe. It is sweetened with all-natural unrefined maple syrup, and uses whole-wheat flour. It is incredibly moist and addictively good! You’ll make it over and over!




    INGREDIENTS
    • 1 cup white whole-wheat flour
    • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • teaspoon baking soda
    • teaspoon salt
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
    • cup avocado oil or organic canola oil
    • cup dark pure maple syrup
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • cup mini chocolate chips
    INSTRUCTIONS
    • Preheat oven to 350F. Generously coat a 8 by 4 -inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
    • Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour,pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk eggs, pumpkin, oil, maple syrup and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir with the silicone spatula until moistened. Add chocolate chips and stir until just combined.
    • Spread the batter out into the prepared loaf pan. Bake until the bread has risen and the center springs back when lightly touched, 58 to 65 minutes. Test with a toothpick to make sure there is no uncooked batter in the center. Let cool completely in the pan on a wire cooling rack. Run a knife around the edges before turning out and slicing.
    NOTES
    • I prefer to use dark maple syrup when cooking. It has the strongest maple flavor. Note that baked goods sweetened with maple syrup have a darker color.
    • White whole wheat flour can be substituted one for one with whole wheat flour. I like white whole wheat because it is lighter in color and it has a less pronounced wheaty flavor.
