Based on a Mollie Katzen recipe... but due to blood sugar issues I am trying to lower my carb count so this is pure experimentation. I am going to cook it later this week and see if it works or not! This was originally made with white flour instead of walnut, so use that if you want to be sure it turns out! (I usually do half white and half wheat and it turns out fine.)
- 1 cup walnut flour
- 1 cup powdered soy protein concentrate
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 cup unrefined sugar
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate
- 15 ounces pumpkin (2 cups)
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
- Preheat the oven to 350 (325 for a glass pan). Lightly grease a regular sized loaf pan.
- Place all the dry ingredients together and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
- In a separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients (I add the butter to the pumpkin first, and add the eggs after, so the eggs don't cook).
- Add the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix until thoroughly blended.
- Pour into pan, shaping it so that it is mounded in the center. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour.
- Cool before eating! (I rarely let it cool. It tastes too good hot!).
Well I was not sure if I should rate with stars because I did make some changes. I could not find walnut flour so used regular. I also did not use the soy and used dry milk powder. But because it turned out so well I decided some might want these changes also. It was delicious! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Thanks Abi Q
