Filled with fall flavors and dotted with chocolate, this Low FODMAP Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate Chips is perfect for a delicious, FODMAP-friendly sweet treat.
Pumpkin is one versatile veggie and happens to be pretty darn good for us, too!
In fact, the bright orange color of pumpkin comes from a nutrient called beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a form of vitamin A and vitamin A helps promotes eye and skin health. It also works to help keep our immune system in check.
Yes, this pumpkin bread is still considered a treat. But, it’s always nice when you can give a dessert a bit of a nutritional boost. #dietitianwin 🙂
In addition to delicious and nutritious pumpkin, this bread calls for a couple of my favorite FODMAP-friendly baking staples – Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour and Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips.
For the past few years, I’ve almost exclusively used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour (in the blue bag) for my baking needs. (Not sponsored, just love!) It’s worked really well in converting just about any wheat-based recipe to be gluten-free. And, it’s FODMAP-friendly (by ingredient).
Another ingredient in this recipe that I really enjoy and consider a baking staple is the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. If you’re not familiar, Enjoy Life is an awesome “free from” brand in the US. Although their line is not completely low FODMAP, the Enjoy Life brand makes a lot of really yummy gluten-free and dairy-free goodies. Their FODMAP-friendly (by ingredient) mini chocolate chips are probably my most common Enjoy Life purchase and have been a dairy-free staple in my house for years.
