Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

November 23, 2007

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Dairy free, Egg free, Gluten free, vegan even.

I made this yesterday cobbling together a couple of different recipes and making it up as I went along. I have never been one to follow a recipe or directions or listen to authority. This is probably why most of my cooking is horrible.

But this? This was really good. Even people who love having their food filled with eggs, dairy and most importantly gluten, liked it and had no idea anything was amiss. It is very dense and moist, something that gluten free baked goods seldom are. And it isn’t at all gritty, which is something else I hate about almost all gluten free foods.

the ingredients

Recipe after the fold, since I know most of you could probably care less. Like me a year ago.

3 cups Arrowhead Mills Gluten Free Baking Mix
1 cup Rob’s Red Mill Rice Flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 cup vanilla soy milk
1 large can Libby’s pumpkin pie mix
1/2 cup sugar*
1 cupish of brown sugar*
1 bag Enjoy Life Gluten free, dairy free chocolate chips
EnerG Egg replacer for 3 eggs mixed with seltzer water

Mix it all together in the order above with the hand mixer.
Pour into 2 well greased loaf pans
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes, then cover with tin foil and bake another 20 minutes or so until a toothpick comes out clean. I checked every 7-8 minutes since I was sure it was going to burn.

* I ran out of white sugar. I am estimating the amount of sugar I eventually put in since I would toss some in mix it up and then taste it. Once it tasted good I stopped. You can taste it, since there are no raw eggs. I think some REAL maple syrup would have been a nice addition also, but I had none.

    Wow, I had no idea those items existed! Good to know. I’m glad you found something you enjoyed eating. After reading all this, I think my mom may have this trouble. She’s been diagnosed with irritable bowel, etc. for years with no end to it.

    Hope you had a wonderful holiday! We sure did. So much to be thankful for.

  2. Phil says:

    You gott try Silk Very Vanilla. It is amazing.


  3. Chris says:


    We do buy that kind too! But I think everyone else prefers it also since it is frequently sold out. The one above is our second choice :-)

  4. Karen Vogel says:

    Good job! And I thought I had it hard cooking without eggs and dairy….

  5. Lynda says:

    That looks delicious! I can appreciate how hard it is to find good allergen-free recipes. It took me years to find a good dairy and egg free recipe for a cake that could pass as a birthday cake for my allergic son (the first attempts were just glorified transport for candles as no-one could actually eat the cake without wincing). When I finally found a recipe for dairy and egg free chocolate fudge cake I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It is so good I am still using it even though he is no longer allergic to eggs!

  6. Michelle says:

    My MIL is a Celiac and we had a gluten-free Thanksgiving dinner for her. We were able to get alot of gluten free bread items from Whole Foods (in another city than where we live of course) and I made a pumpkin pie using pecans for a crust. I also bought some Bob’s Red Mill baking flour and made an apple pie. It was very good. She has been a Celiac for many years now and there are lots of products that are actually pretty good (like Pamela’s).

  7. kate says:

    no soy here so I wonder how it would taste with Rice Milk? Hmm I will have to try!

  8. Chris says:

    Kate, I think it would be fine with rice milk.

  9. Christie says:

    Yeah! Someone else cooks like we do! This looks great, and I will plan to make for my allergic son!

  10. M. says:

    Hey that looks delicious! Nice job! Don’t lose the recipe so then you will be able to make it whenever you are craving “normal” muffins, cakes and so on.

  11. Claudette says:

    My neighbour (and friend) up here in Canada is not vegan, but constantly cooking for her vegan inlaws.

    And she has another relative she cooks for who has a gluten allergy.

    This neighbour is awesome. She has 2 small kids and a HUGE talent in cooking and photography.

    I may have left a similar message before, I can’t remember, but if I haven’t, go check out her site.


    You will not be sorry.

  12. jenijen says:

    I am SO making that today! I made a crisp for Thanksgiving that I found on gluten free goddess, and it was really great. Here’s the linkyloo

    it’s vegan + gluten free, so I think it’s okay for you.

  13. Rachel says:

    Ditto to what Michelle said. Pamela’s gluten-free products are excellent. I can’t tell the difference with any of her products and neither can my husband. Her bread mix actually tastes and has a texture like regular bread (not hard and gritty like most gluten-free bread) and you can make in a bread machine. It is so easy.

  14. peepnroosmom says:

    Yum! That looks really good.

  15. Annette says:

    Thanks for the recipe–will have to try that for sure. On a side note, I used the Egg Replacer in my pumpkin pies yesterday, and even my “a little bit won’t hurt you” MIL couldn’t tell. Yay!

  16. Maddy says:

    A friend who is also gluten, egg and dairy intolerant, uses puréed apple to add to cakes to keep them moist, add some sweetness and it also works to bind the ingredients.

  17. Ellen Brody says:

    Love the food porn! I have already printed the recipe to try out tomorrow - I think that it’s going to be the perfect thing to bring to a prschool classroom full of various and sundry allergies. Say chocolate to a room full of 3 y.o. and I will be the best parent helper ever… I have to make up for leaving a child outside while we were all at circle time. Thank god for attendance checks!

  18. Gwen says:

    Would it make you feel better to know that my husband could not even one of the ingredients you listed? Looks good, though!

  19. Chris says:

    it wouldn’t make me feel better. It would make me feel sad for him! Please tell me he can eat good things like Cheese! Bread! Eggs!

  20. Lizzy in the Burbs says:


    Thanks for sharing this recipe. My niece eats only a vegan diet, not due to allergy, by choice, and it’s hard to make her tasty food for family gatherings. I feel bad for her because she is always made to feel like she’s practicing some weird diet craze, people don’t understand. Your bread looks really yummy! I’m going to make it for our family Christmas get together.

  21. Lovebabz says:

    Oh you are talking my language now Sister!. That looks like you walked into my kitchen and pulled out all my stuff. I will give your receipe a try. YUMMY to my TUMMY!

  22. Gwen says:

    Alas, cheese and eggs yes, bread no. Isn’t really amazing, though, what we can find to do with what we have? A year ago everything seemed overwhelming. Now, not so much.

  23. Lucinda says:

    I care! I care! I am also gluten, egg, and dairy free. Thanks for the recipe.

  24. Kristen says:

    I love chocolate chips in my pumpkin bread! We just made a completely dairy-free, fat-free pumpkin pie that was amazing. It had a ginger snap crust. It’s amazing what you can back if you are willing to experiment.

  25. Esme says:

    I’m coming to this a few days late, but Thank you for posting the recipe! I care, as does my gluten-free daughter and my gluten-free, egg-free son! This looks delicious!!!

  26. ChristieNY says:

    Fantastic! Thank you, Chris. It looks like you raided our kitchen for ingredients, I don’t think I even need to go to the grocery store before making this! :)

  27. Wicked Stepmom says:

    This is great! Thanks for posting the recipe (love the idea of adding a “Food” section to your blog as well).

    I passed a link on to a friend who needs these recipes for her allergic 2 y/o.

  28. Chele says:

    Very late to the party, but THANK YOU times a million from me and my gluten & dairy allergic son! Pumpkin & chocolate– not much beats that on my yumminess meter. I’m going to make this for Christmas.
