Maple Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Maple Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Are you sick of my fall recipes? Well, if you are, I’m sorry!

I’m just getting started. I’ve never done themed recipes before so let a girl live! I’ve fallen in love with baking. It takes a really long time and you have to be precise, but it’s so much fun. I’m going to be investing in a KitchenAid very soon and I’m so excited about that. There’s so much that I have to learn when it comes to baking, so I don’t claim to be an excellent baker. If you have any issues when it comes to making this recipe, please let me know in the comments and I’m willing to help. This turned out very well for me, but everyone has different ingredients and oven temperatures.. you know how that goes. I’m a beginner just like you. Haha.

Making this bread was so difficult for no reason. I’ve been feeling ill and I was trying to fight that feeling off to develop some content for you guys. I’ve been feeling so hot and cold. I have a heating pad on my back right now as we speak with the air conditioner on. It’s that bad. Every time the weather changes, my health just goes all the way down. It’s like clockwork, my body just doesn’t take well to weather changes. I just want one Fall or Winter to go by without getting a cold. I need to sip on some bone broth and make me some type of soup. I’m going to come up with some type of soup recipe to get me through this Fall/Winter because I am so tired. My favorite soups are French Onion and Clam Chowder; maybe I should make a Chicken Chowder with lots of bacon?

Despite feeling like complete trash when making this bread and photographing it, the smell of the pumpkin spice and fresh bread got me through. There is nothing better than smelling pumpkin spice or cinnamon, it just brings so much life to your house. It’s impossible to stay in a bad mood when there’s some fresh bread in the oven. Everyone loves bread! There’s this misconception that bread makes you gain weight. No, it doesn’t. Eating the whole loaf makes you gain weight. This explains why a lot of dieters tend to cut it out whenever they’re trying to lose some pounds. You put a bread basket at the dinner table and everybody is going to have at least seconds or thirds of the bread if it’s good. I’ve never seen anyone pass up on eating some bread at dinner, NEVER!

Also, I want to let you all know that the chocolate and maple peanut butter drizzle are completely optional. You do not have to use both in this recipe and the bread will still be delicious. If you want a healthier additive to this recipe, toast up some pecans and drizzle them with some maple syrup and salt - top the bread with this topping after the bread is done and oh, man it’s delicious with some Greek Yogurt.

Maple Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

prep time: 30 minscook time: 55 minstotal time: 85 mins

This is the sweetest bread that you'll ever have. This is not for those who are trying to eat less desserts. Pumpkin, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chips, and Maple Syrup are combined to make this sinful Pumpkin Bread. This is the perfect bread to make for the holidays.

ingredients:

  • 2 cups Bread Flour (or All Purpose Flour)
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 cups Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Egg Replacer from Bob's Red Mill
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Ground Flax
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen
  • 1/2 cup Monkfruit Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 3 tbsp Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 tsp Blackstrap Molasses (optional)
  • 1 cup Water 
  • 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • Avocado Oil Cooking Spray

instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.  Add some parchment paper to a bread loaf pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, ground flax, collagen, and sugar. Mix until well combined. 
  3. In another bowl, prepare your Bob's Red Mill egg replacer. Add it to a medium bowl with the water, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, coconut oil, pumpkin puree, and blackstrap molasses.
  4. Add the medium liquid bowl to the large dry bowl. Mix well. Add more flour if the texture isn't to your liking (mine worked perfectly). Mix together very well. 
  5. Add the mixture to the bread pan and top with chocolate chips. Place in oven and bake for 55 minutes. 
  6. While waiting for the bread to finish baking, make a peanut butter maple drizzle to go on top of the bread. Using a hand mixer or a spoon, mix together the peanut butter and maple syrup. Adjust the measurements to your liking for this, I wanted the texture of a thinner peanut butter drizzle. 
  7. Remove from oven and drizzle with the peanut butter sauce. Allow to cool for at least 10-30 minutes before cutting. 
  8. Enjoy!
