Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

http://www.wellplated.com
Incredibly moist pumpkin chocolate chip bread that tastes like fall. With lots of warm spices, chocolate, and oats, this is the best healthy pumpkin bread!

YIELD: 1 9×5-inch loaf TOTAL TIME: 1 hour, plus cooling time
Ingredients:

1 1/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats, plus additional 1-2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground all spice

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

2 large eggs

1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar

2 tablespoons melted and cooled coconut oil, light olive oil, or canola oil

1/3 cup, plus 1 1/2 tablespoons non-fat milk, unsweetened almond milk, or unsweetened soymilk

1 1/4 cups unsweetened pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix)

2/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I love Ghirardelli), plus additional for sprinkling on top

Directions:

Place rack in the center of your oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9×5-inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1 cup oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.

In a large, separate bowl, beat together the eggs, brown sugar, and oil on medium speed until combined. Add the milk and pumpkin and beat again until evenly combined. Add the dry ingredients, then gently stir them in by hand, just until combined. Do not over mix. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Smooth the top, then sprinkle with oats and chocolate chips. Bake the loaf for 45 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Place the pan on a cooling rack, then let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Gently turn the loaf out onto the rack to cool completely.

Store leftover pumpkin bread in an airtight container lined with paper towels for up to 4 days at room temperature or 7 days in the refrigerator. It can be frozen, wrapped tightly and placed in a ziptop bag, for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature prior to serving.

You will have a small amount of pumpkin leftover. Try it mixed into oatmeal with a bit of maple syrup, cinnamon, and pecans or walnuts for a lovely fall breakfast.

Pineapple Angel Food Cake

Serves: 12
INGREDIENTS
1 box (1-step) angel food cake mix (I use Betty Crocker)
1 large can (about 20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained

INSTRUCTIONS
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together the dry cake and the entire can of crushed pineapple with its juice. Stir well until all the dry mix is incorporated. (The mixture will get really foamy.) Pour the batter into a 9×13 pan. (DO NOT GREASE THE PAN.)
Bake at 350 degrees for time specified on the box for size pan. When the sides pull away from pan and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, the cake is done. (About 30-40 minutes for a 9×13-inch pan.)
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
