Pumpkin Bread!

on September 16, 2013

Happy Monday!  As I set here typing this up, drinking my coffee, I feel so blessed to be alive.  My body feels its age this morning, but it’s going to be an amazing day. 

 

I wanted to share a recipe with you this morning!

 

Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins:  (Quick Bread)

 

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • pinch of salt, optional and to taste

 

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (other milks may be substituted)
  • 2 tablespoons of mild or medium molasses
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

 

Directions:

 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Wisk all dry ingredients and set aside
  3. Mix sugars, pumpkin, coconut oil, almond milk, molasses and vanilla with a wisk
  4. Combine all ingredients and mix well. 
  5. add semi-sweet chocolate chips

You can make muffins out by dividing the batter equally in a prepared pan, but I made it into a quick bread and it turned out just as great!

The first time that I made this it did not turn out.  Not due to this amazing recipe from Averie Cooks, but because I was running behind and if I had actually waited, I would have been late for work!  This time?  It turned out great!  This is a really rich recipe and I love the molasses and pumpkin combined together. 

Give it a try and let me know what you think!  And, head on over to Averie Cooks for some more amazing recipes!

 

Workouts:

This week I am not sure what I am going to do.  This morning I am actually just going to walk…I am still feeling a bit under the weather.  Better yet, I might even just rest today.  Other than working Saturday, I stayed in this past weekend and just did some major laying up. 

 

 

I hope that you have an amazing Monday!
