Yes, you read right. This dark chocolate and pumpkin bread is so easy to prepare, it will soon become one of your favorite vegan treats.
In this time of year, well since October, everywhere you turn around you see pumpkins. Fresh ones, canned and everything is pumpkin flavored. I really thought I was over it when I prepared the pumpkin pie granola. But I saw the dark chocolate and pumpkin combination in a magazine and knew immediately I had to prepare something.
So I came home and developed this recipe. This vegan pumpkin bread really is the easiest dark chocolate and pumpkin bread you’ll ever find. When I prepared it I had to do it three times, I just couldn’t believe how easy and good it turned out.
I use store-bought pumpkin puree and I always try to look for the organic one. For the flour, I try to use the whole wheat one always. But there are times or recipes, like this one, that I use all-purpose flour. The trick here is to look for the unbleached and unenriched flour. When flour is bleached and enriched (vitamins and minerals added to it) it becomes a very processed product that you just do not want to eat.
As you can see in the video below, this recipe is just mix and bake. You make it all in one bowl, so yes, it means less clean-up. These recipes make me so happy!!
