White Chocolate Pumpkin Oat Bread & #LoveYourAge Inspiration

healthy pumpkin bread with white chocolate Feed your face . . . I mean soul . .  with this wholesome recipe for a fall season-inspired, no-fuss pumpkin quick bread.  This autumn recipe for Pumpkin Oat Bread with White Chocolate Chips is all treat with just a few tricks tossed in to make it a touch healthier than the traditional pumpkin bread I grew up baking. For example, in lieu of some of the sugar, I’ve used a Stevia blend and also reduced part of the oil with extra pumpkin puree for added moistness. Additionally, instead of using entirely all-purpose white flour, I swapped in oats for extra fiber and texture. Oh, and those white chocolate chips are a sweet splurge, but you could substitute nuts or dried fruit.   And, if this flour-y pumpkin bread recipe doesn’t float your boat, I have a gluten-free, paleo friendly Chocolate Chip Cranberry Pumpkin Bread I created last year.

super oats chia*You can use any oats you prefer – gluten-free, old-fashioned or quick oats.  I actually used Love Grown Foods® Super Oats (Simply Pure variety) – these awesome oats throws in extra like quinoa flakes, amaranth flakes and chia seeds. It’s meant to be eaten as a hot breakfast cereal, but makes a really wholesome recipe ingredient too!  BTW, this isn’t a sponsored post; I just really like the oats!

    • Thanks Neil! My curiosity was also piqued by the free nutrition class you were taking — do you have to be an RD or is it open to layperson nutrition nerds?

    • the white chocolate kinda melted into the bread, I was bummed at first . . . until I tasted and it was TDF!

  2. WHITE CHOCOLATE?! PUMPKIN?! I gotta figure out how to do this…… Is there a dairy, sugar, soy, nut free white chocolate in this world? I think I found a recipe for making white chocolate. Man, I need to slave in my kitchen because this combo sounds absolutely EPIC!
