I tried to make some paleo pumpkin cookies, and man they sucked! No, seriously, I literally gave the whole batch to our chickens. They enjoyed them, but they have pretty low standards, I mean, they eat bugs for goodness sake. Anywho......
I still had pumpkin puree left over, and we had guests coming over and thought, "hey, maybe I'll make some pumpkin pancakes or muffins, or bread for breakfast for our guests...", but my indecisive mind couldn't settle on anything.
So, as I often do, I turned to my council of beautiful minds (um, my 4 and 5 year olds), and asked them what to do. 5 year old Abby said, "well, can we make something with pumpkin...but also chocolate chips?" (because when you're 5 everything should include chocolate...wait, I still feel that way, and I am no longer 5 years old....I digress. I'm sorry).
So, since her only requirement was chocolate, and I wanted something I could make ahead for breakfast for our guests, but also something that didn't require too much scooping (feeling lazy!), we settled on the loaf!
It turned out super-duper, and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope you get a chance to make this festive, autumn-y loaf! :)
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
This tasty loaf will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week. But seriously, who will have this just hanging around for a week?!? Bonkers. And if you think you will have it for a week (again...bonkers), share it! :)
Well, to all those heading out tonight to collect enormous amounts of candy, best of luck to you! I am heading out (into the rain and flurries!) with my kiddies, and they are so, so, sooooo very excited!
I am not quite as excited, but their enthusiasm more than makes up for my lack of natural eagerness towards walking around in the rain. There is candy though, so....
Oh, and, I will be in costume...dressed as a tired, wet, slightly grumpy Mom. Best costume ever! I actually already had it handy, so I just figured I should participate. :)
Well, world-wide-webers, I'm signing off, and I wish you a happy weekend!
