The Challenge: Pumpkin Pie Bread

Its November … you know what that means … T H A N K S G I V I N G. The day most of our country kills some turkeys I wanted to make something a little different. Pumpkin pie is pretty delicious, but I wanted to make something a bit more unique. We took the best part of pumpkin pie and made it into bread, mixed in dark chocolate chips, and then with a walnut pumpkin pie dark chocolate topping.

We pop that sucker in the oven and bake it! It is amazing. It is a delicious concotion that you can slice apart, smother in some vegan butter, and devour! I love, love, love this bread, and I don’t even like sweets.

Don’t hate me… but yeah I don’t like dessert. But, this pumpkin pie bread is the perfect blend of sweet, salty, chocolate, and fall flavors that you will love. Thanksgiving has another great dish to put on the counter next to the pie that your family will absolutely love.

But how do we vegan? Well, we replace the eggs with apple sauce. When baking, I really like to use applesauce over other egg replacers because it keeps the bread very moist. I prefer it to flax eggs (which are much better for veggie burgers) or banana, which flavor the dish.

For the dark chocolate, we use dark chocolate chips that are made with cocoa butter, which is vegan yay!!

So slice off a piece and eat it up. Let’s get fat this Thanksgiving! Gobble gobble, save a turkey.

Let's get into it!
