love chai tea. Is there really even any other kind of tea?

In my mind, no. Except for green tea. Which I am begrudgingly drinking by the gallon as part of my cleanse, wishing it were spicy and comforting, with a hint of milk and honey, like my beloved chai.

I keep reciting: Super food. Fat Burning Super food. 

If only it could taste a little less like dirt and a little more like…ohhhh, say, something along the lines of butter?

Before I departed on this flavorless fantastic healthful eating journey, I made Chai Spiced Pumpkin Bread. Two dreamy loaves to snack on over the weekend, before bidding carbs adieu.

I took my favorite pumpkin bread recipe and tweaked it by adding chai tea concentrate in place of the water. The result is a ridiculously moist, spicy pumpkin bread with a cozy kick of chai; perfect for sipping under your fuzziest blanket while watching the leaves fall outside your window. (Assuming you live in a place with seasons, as does my fantasy bread-snacker in this case). I like to serve this bread for breakfast with a healthy pay of regular or cinnamon cream cheese.

Keep it sweet! xoxo, Katie

Recipe Note: Chai tea concentrate is available pre-made at most grocery stores. Instead of buying the pre-made mix, I soaked 3 chai tea bags in 2/3 cup of water for 10 minutes. The store bought version contains milk and is sweetened. Choose whichever suits your palate! 

Chai Spiced Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup chai tea concentrate (see notes above)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Grease either 3 7x3 inch loaf pans OR 2 larger loaf pans (such as a 9x5).
  • In a large bowl, combine pumpkin, eggs, vegetable oil, chai tea and sugar. Mix until well blended.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining dry ingredients.
  • Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture and blend just until there are no lumps.
  • Pour into your prepared pans. For 3 smaller pans bake for approximately 50 minutes. For 2 larger pans bake for 60-65 minutes. Loaves are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
