Pumpkin Chai Bread

Guys… IT’S HERE. Not officially, but the weather says otherwise. Fall weather is my faaaavorite season! Get ready for lots of Fall-ish recipes. Ah I’m just so happy. 

Okay, this bread. Probably one of my favorite things that I have made so far. Sam and I ate the whole loaf in 2 days. It is really yummy for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee and a little bit of almond butter on top 🙂 MMM! It is loaded with all of the flavors of Fall. It was also the perfect study snack!

I brought some in to work to have my co-workers try it and one of them (hey, Vanessa) said that it was delicious, but really hearty. LOL. It’s true, it is hearty bread, but that is because it is made with wholesome ingredients! I also gave some of the bread to the Marines that work next door… I warned them it was “healthy” and I haven’t heard back from them yet hahahaha

Now that school has started for both Sam and I, my time is even more precious. This loaf was so easy to make and took me 15 min (if that) to throw everything together and get it in the oven. Super quick and easy!

This bread is: oil-free, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free! WAHOO!!! 

 

P.S. Don’t know what to do with the leftover pumpkin puree? PUMPKIN PIE OATMEAL, OF COURSE. img_0361img_0345img_0363 img_0364
