  • 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup of Honey or Maple Syrup

Notes

  • Choose the Right Pumpkin: Opt for canned pure pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling. It's lower in sugar and calories.
  • Dark Chocolate Chips: Opt for dark chocolate chips with a higher cocoa content. They contain less sugar than milk chocolate chips.
  • Portion Control: Divide the batter into smaller loaf pans or muffin tins to control portion sizes.
  • Spice it Up: Use a mix of warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves to enhance the pumpkin flavor without adding calories.
  • Toasted Nuts: If you enjoy nuts in your pumpkin loaf, toast them before adding for extra flavor without needing as many.
  • Don't Overmix: Overmixing can make the loaf tough. Mix until just combined.
  • Parchment Paper Lining: Line the loaf pan with parchment paper for easy removal and less need for added fat to prevent sticking.
  • Temperature Control: Preheat your oven properly and monitor the temperature to ensure even baking.
  • Cool Before Slicing: Allow the loaf to cool completely before slicing to prevent it from falling apart.
  • Portion and Freeze: Once your loaf is cool, slice it into individual portions and freeze them. This prevents overeating and makes it easy to grab a portion for a quick treat.
