Ignore the photo. It doesn’t do it justice. Honestly, this might be my most favorite thing I have ever created. Like, most favorite ever.
Yes, I’m OK sounding like a complete moron in hopes that it motivates you to make this. I brought into into the office this morning and I made lots of friends. It’s the perfect fall treat and it combines three of my favorite things: pumpkin, chocolate and walnuts.
It’s a great twist on the standard banana bread and it’s so easy.
Here’s my recipe. Give it a try. I promise you’ll love it.
- 3/4 c. coconut oil
- 1 c. pumpkin filling
- 2 c. sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 3 c. all-purpose flour
- 1 8oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 3oz. bag of chopped walnuts
Preheat your oven to 400°.
Melt the coconut oil in a large bowl. Mix in the pumpkin filling, followed by the sugar.
In a separate bowl, beat the two eggs and add to the pumpkin mixture. Sprinkle the cinnamon, baking soda and salt over the top, then mix in the flour.
Finally, add the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Mix well.
All that’s left to do is grease up your bread pan, pour the dough in and bake for 30-35 minutes. Remember I’m working with an out-dated oven so I’m never quite sure how long to keep it in. Once the top of the bread is golden, you’re good to go!
All the best,
