    Is it possible to sub some almond flour for the regular flour or will that really change the consistency of this bread?

    Do you think I could add chocolate chips to this? Also, recently moved to Denver, Colorado. Any advice for baking this at higher altitudes? Have volunteered to make mini pumpkin bread loafs for my sons teachers.
