What You'll Need
  • Pumpkin Bread
  • 1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (225g)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200g)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (100g)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice blend
  • 1 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt [If using any other type of salt, use half the amount recommended]
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil (60mL)
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree (340g)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup walnut pieces
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • Pumpkin Spice Blend
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  1. Adjust oven rack to lower third and preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit. Coat a 9" loaf pan with coconut oil, then line it with parchment paper, leaving 1" of overhang on each side.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice blend, making sure to break up any lumps in the brown sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and oil. Then, add the pumpkin puree and water and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix gently, just until combined with no dry spots remaining. Then, fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. Pour the batter into the the baking pan and bake for 60-70 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
