This is one of my kitchen staples because it’s so delicious, decadent, and easy to make, I’m so in love with this recipe. I have a slice for breakfast with some nut butter, or a sweet afternoon snack. It’s amazing!

Ingredients- yields 6 slices:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (blended into flour)
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter ( i used crunchy)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( i used Hershey’s 100% Dark)
  • 1 1/2 banana
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips to sprinkle on top

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan
  • Blend oats, protein powder, baking powder, and spices in a blender and pour in a bowl
  • Blend pumpkin puree, cocoa powder, and banana until smooth and pour into the same bowl with the flour mixture (might be a little thick but rich)
  • Heat the almond butter in a microwave safe bowl at least 30 seconds so it’s slightly melted and easy to pour out and then pour into the same bowl
  • Mix everything until just combined. It will be slightly thick.
  • Pour the chocolate mix to the greased loaf pan and sprinkle on top with chocolate chips and i like to even sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top
  • Bake for 26 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean

Enjoy!
