Pumpkin Carob Chip Bread

It’s ‘pumpkin’ time again! I made this bread because I love snacking on something sweet before my morning runs and because I had some leftover buttercup squash lying around. As I mentioned in my ‘Pumpkin’ Pie Smoothie recipe, you can really exchange acorn, buttercup or butternut squash for pumpkin in any recipe and get an equally delicious outcome! I just put pumpkin in the title because I think tossing squash in a baked goods recipe freaks people out. Well, it shouldn’t because I guarantee you won’t be able to taste the difference.

I should also mention that this bread turned out very moist. It was so moist that when I tried to transfer it to a cooling rack I squished it in the process. Of course this was before taking pictures of it sliced, LOL. I am pretty sure I muffled a few choice words as I was trying to salvage what I had for pictures (still tasted awesome though)! Anyway, here is a picture of it in the pan before squish-gate 101 occurred:
