Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp grass-fed butter, ghee or coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
  • 15 oz can pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature, preferably pasture-raised
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp cassava flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup + 3-4 Tbsp good-quality dark chocolate chips (I used 85%)
  • 3-4 Tbsp pumpkin seeds, preferably sprouted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 8.5 x 4.5 loaf pan (1.5 quart size) with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, mix whisk together the pumpkin puree, melted butter (or ghee or coconut oil), raw honey, apple cider vinegar, vanilla and eggs. In a separate smaller bowl, mix together the coconut flour, cassava flour, baking soda, sea salt and spices. Carefully mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Once mixed, gently fold in 1/2 cup of the dark chocolate chips.

  3. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan in an even layer. Then, garnish top with remaining 3-4 Tbsp of dark chocolate chips and 3-4 Tbsp of pumpkin seeds. Bake in preheated oven 50-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs. Let cool in pan for 10-12 minutes. Then, remove from pan and place on cooling rack to cool completely before slicing (about 45-60 minutes).

  4. Store in an airtight container and eat within a few days.
