Pumpkin oatmeal bread

ingredients:
  • 15 oz (1 can) canned pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 c vegetable oil
  • 1/3 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 2/3 c water
  • 2 1/3 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c rolled oats
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 3/4 c chocolate chips
Steps:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine pumpkin, eggs, oil, applesauce and water in  a bowl. Beat together until creamy.
  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, sugar, spices together. Stir in oatmeal.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until fully mixed. If you’re adding chocolate chips, do it now.
  5. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes. This allows the oatmeal to soak up some of the pumpkin flavor from the liquids.
  6. Split the batter between two greased loaf pans. Sprinkle the batter with oats, cinnamon, and chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes. It’s done when a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean. Leave in the pan to cool completely before digging in.
