Pumpkin, chocolate, and harvest spices make a winning combo.  What could be better on a chilly fall day, or really any day of the year?  

The recipe is easy to multiply, so make an extra batch and turn it into muffins!  They freeze well, too.  So go ahead and double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe for plenty to enjoy now plus extras to tuck away for later.

Almond flour keeps this recipe paleo and gluten-free, while maple syrup provides natural sweetening without any refined sugars.  Cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg add just the right amount of harvest spice.

You could definitely make this bread without the chocolate chips but honestly, what’s the point?  In my opinion, chocolate is the perfect balance to the fall flavors of spiced pumpkin in this recipe.  If you really don’t want to add the chocolate, chopped nuts or raisins would work well, too.

This paleo chocolate chip pumpkin bread is equally delicious warmed up, toasted, or eaten cold straight from the fridge.  I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine!

    I’ve tried SO MANY paleo pumpkin recipes and this one is easily the BeST!!! The muffins are so moist and the spice level is the flavor burst I’ve always lacked in previous attempts at the fall pumpkin success! Another reason I love these….no melting butter or oil! I made these for my family and everyone loved them and I felt proud serving them. Thank you Kathleen for the perfect kick off to fall!

    • Kathleen Henderson on 09/08/2021 at 10:07 am

      Yay! I’m so glad you and your family are loving this recipe, Joanna! It’s quickly become one of our favorites too.
