Jump to RecipePrint Recipe

I Looooove fall! It’s definitely my favorite season. I wish it were longer. Autumn seems to be very short-lived in Texas. If I had it my way, fall would be the longest season of them all. I love the weather, I love the colors, I love the decorations, I love Halloween, and I especially love the smells and the food!

Pumpkin is one of the things I look forward to the most. ‘Tis the season for pumpkin-flavored everything! I am a big fan of pumpkin. So get ready for some upcoming pumpkin-inspired recipes!

And here is the first!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

This is a very dense and moist bread.  I made one loaf yesterday to test out the recipe, and it is nearly gone now.
I made another loaf today to tweak and perfect the recipe, and it is just as good, and it’s disappearing! This could be a great treat to take for Thanksgiving or Christmas!

I seriously love this paleo pumpkin bread.  I want to make this all the time and eat it.  I took a loaf to work and it was gone before noon, which made me a little upset because I didn’t grab myself a slice before it was gone. I hope you enjoy! Let me know if you like it!

    Bread recipes like this are the bomb, and it’s so nice to come across a recipe that incorporates pumpkin without it being solely pumpkin spiced 😉 I’m sure the chocolate adds a nice richness and puts a unique spin on it!

    This looks great! I must admit I thought going paleo meant you could not bake at high heats … too many lifestyles and I get confused 🙂
