Protein Pumpkin Chai Spice Loaf
Nothing says autumn like pumpkins (thanks America!) and this recipe is everything you love about the changing seasons. Deliciously autumnal with a hint of spice, this is warm scarves and walks among the changing leaves.
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, 350°F or gas mark 4.
Using a large bowl or mixer, combine the flour, sweetener, vegan protein, baking powder, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg and whisk together to remove any lumps.
Add the pumpkin puree, chai tea, coconut oil, white vinegar and combine the ingredients together to form the cake batter.
Transfer the batter into a prepared loaf tin and bake for 40-45 minutes. Adjust cooking times if you have a fan oven.
Remove from the oven and let the loaf cool for approximately 20 minutes.
