Because ’tis the season for pumpkin, betches.
I basically got the idea from this recipe, and more or less used this recipe, and then made it my own, obviously. Protein and pumpkin and chocolate chips, with great texture? Yeah, eat it for all the times.
Protein Pumpkin Bread (with optional chocolate chips)
- 4 scoops Primal Kitchen vanilla whey protein powder*
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/8 cup arrowroot
- generous sprinkles of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger
- 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 eggs
- (optional) chocolate chips (like Thrive Market dark chocolate)
Mix all these things together in one bowl until well combined.
Use coconut oil spray on a glass loaf pan, then pour the mixture in.
Bake at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes. This will magically rise and the top will crack like real loaf bread, so don’t pull it out until that magic happens.
Let it cool for best texture, or hell, eat it hot and burn your mouth.

*this is probably a factor, because two scoops of this has the same protein as one scoop of most other brands—meaning the “filler” is fluffier and can take more of the flour volume than other brands. That said, I haven’t tried this recipe with any other brands so idk.
