  • 1.5 cups ground oats or oat flour
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 eggs (or 2 flax eggs)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup, agave or honey
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips


  • In a bowl, mix together the ground oats, quick cooking oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin spice. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs and add the liquid sweetener (maple syrup, honey or agave), applesauce, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree, and whisk well until combined.
  • Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined, no more than that.
  • Gently fold in the dark chocolate chips.
  • Grease your loaf pan with some butter or coconut oil, pour in the batter and smooth the top. Sprinkle with some pumpkin seeds on top.
  • Bake for 55-60 minutes at 350F (180C), tent with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning.
  • When baked let it cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes, then turn it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Serve with pumpkin whipped cream (1 cup heavy cream, 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1 tbsp honey).
