In case you haven’t noticed, I am a big fan of quick breads – see this Olive Oil Pumpkin Bread and this Apple Zucchini Bread – but what I like most about these recipes is that I have found a way around that guilty feeling while consuming all-the-carbs. Here’s what I mean:

  • Whole Wheat Flour
  • Yogurt
  • Sweetener
  • Pumpkin (or apples, zucchini, bananas, etc…!)
  • and in the case of this CHOCOLATE Pumpkin Bread, DARK Chocolate Chips!

Dark Chocolate is good for you! It IS! Google it.

What I am trying to get at is: this pumpkin bread – you can’t go wrong with it. UNLESS you eat the whole loaf all by yourself. Then, you’ve definitely gone very wrong.  But if ya stick to say, a slice, you’re ALL good! Even 2 slices. 3 is sort of pushing it… Buuuut, it is under 100 calories a slice… 3 slices and there’s your dinner! KIDDING!

In other news, did you know that the only thing better than eating pumpkin bread in your striped pajamas is slathering some butter all over that slice and adding a drizzle of honey? Best.garnish.evvver.

    I appreciate this lightened up version but I am also interested in the original recipe. I’ve tried to find it within the archives but it doesn’t seem to exist. Can you help? Thanks!

    1. Hi! I have never tried this recipe with coconut flour, but what I do know is that you have to use less coconut flour…something around 1/3 cup coconut flour for 1 cup all purpose flour. You will also need more eggs. I am not sure if one more is good enough for this bread, but you’ll have to play around with the recipe to get the right texture and taste. I hope this helps. 🙂
