Best Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Bread EVER | Gluten + Sugar-free

Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

35 minutes


1 cup organic pureed pumpkin
1/4 cup raw coconut oil, melted
2 organic free-range eggs
4 medjool dates, pitted and finely chopped
2 tbsp organic maple syrup, grade b
1 tsp vanilla (no alcohol)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1/4 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
1/3 cup mini-chocolate chips (I like Enjoy-Life brand) -


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper and grease the paper with a little coconut oil.

In a mixer, combine the pumpkin, coconut oil and eggs. Mix well. Next add dates, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix again. Next add all the other ingredients except for mini-chocolate chips. Gently combine, but do not over-mix. Add 1/4 of chocolate chips to mixture, and combine with a spatula.

Put mixture in the prepared loaf pan. The mixture is quite thick; flatten and smooth with a spatula. Add the remaining chocolate chips to the top of the loaf and gently press down.

Bake for about 40 minutes. The edges will be slighly brown and a toothpick will come out clean. Do not over bake. 

Allow to slightly cool on wire rack. Then gather your friends/family (no dogs) in the kitchen for a cup of tea, and the most divine Autumn treat ever. The best news... no sugar hangover!


My Sweet Friends,

I have a special and delightful treat for you today. I am pretty pumped up about this tasty treat. I am not a baker, but today is the exception! After several not-so-right attempts, I NAILED it! Yes, I mean got it SO freaking right on! This is by far my most favorite concoction that I have personally ever 'baked'. 

My family a.k.a, taste testers, happily agreed. This IS the best 'thing' I have ever baked. (Yes, still quite pumped!) I also have some side-bar tasters (Saban boys + mom), and was on my way to get their approval, when POOF... the bread disappeared. I am talking the entire rest of the loaf. In dismay, I spotted my furry friend who was happily licking her chops! So there you have it... 100% Pehrson family approved. (Saban's I promise to make it up to you).

Give it a whirl. Remember to drop by and thank me after.
