Pumpkin Flax Bread (Eggless)

Did anyone go out Black Friday shopping today?  I decided to avoid the crowds and the cold and hang out at home.       

While most of you are probably ready to move onto all things peppermint and eggnog, I'm still over here swooning over this pumpkin bread.  This was definitely our favorite pumpkin bread recipe this year and I made it so many times.

This recipe really intrigued me, because there are no eggs in it, but instead you add ground flaxseed meal.  Flax is said to offer many health benefits and it contains omega-3, fiber and protein.  It can also be used in recipes instead of eggs.    

The texture and flavor of this bread are amazing.  It's not too sweet and it's not overpowered with pumpkin flavor.  It's a delicious hearty bread that tastes great for several days.  This will be one of my go-to recipe for years to come.

(Printable Recipe)

6 Tbl. water
2 Tbl. ground flaxseed meal
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. canned pumpkin puree
1/2 c. canola oil
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 c. mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x5-inch baking pan with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.  In a large bowl, whisk together the water and flaxseed meal.  Stir in the sugar, pumpkin, oil and vanilla and whisk until combined.  In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, along with the mini chocolate chips and stir together until just combined.  

Pour batter into prepared pan and spread out evenly.  Bake in preheated oven for 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  I like to tent mine with foil the last 10 minutes of baking, so the top doesn't get too brown.  Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely.  Slice and serve.
