Ingredients
  

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups white wheat flour
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree, not the pie filling
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Extra:

  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray your loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • Microwave your coconut oil for about 20 seconds.  Just enough for it to start to turn into a liquid.  Allow it to cool a bit.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients - white wheat flour, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda.  Use a whisk to combine them well.
  • In a second bowl, mix together the wet ingredients - pumpkin puree, vanilla greek yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil.P
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient and fold together until it's all combined.  Do not overwork or overmix it because that will keep it from being fluffy. 
  • Fold in the chocolate chips.The batter will be thick.  Put it into a loaf pan.  Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 40-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
