Pumpkin Bread is the perfect fall go-to recipe! This pumpkin bread base recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and paleo friendly. Bread just got awesome!

For those days that you want to impress friends and family, or just experiment in the kitchen, the chocolate marble swirl will do exactly that. Don’t worry – it isn’t nearly as complicated as it sounds! I was nervous about making a marble bread or adding a swirl at first, but it isn’t as complex as it seems since there technically is no right or wrong way. Just be sure to alternate the batter mixtures, and not to overmix it at the end, so there is still some contrast between the pumpkin and chocolate. Embrace your creativity and enjoy the wonderful fall aroma this will leave in your kitchen.
