Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread with Flax
Nothing says fall like homemade pumpkin bread. This bread is lower in sugar that typical varieties and includes a healthy dose of flaxseed for added nutrients. By using plant based milk and flax for eggs it accommodates vegan and dairy free diets – don’t forget the chocolate chips!
