We all know for a fact that chocolate and caramel goes so well together, right?! And since I was testing some seasonal recipes I thought that combining two of our favorite seasonal flavors would be just perfect!


A soft and fluffy pumpkin bread with a touch of chocolate caramel protein! One of the best parts of this recipe is that it's healthier, lower in sugar and higher in protein! We can consider these also gut friendly since I added a touch of collagen and we are also keeping gluten free!



About this Chocolate Caramel Pumpkin Bread:

These are just a chocolate dream! But with that I also wanted to include a twist, a healthy and still delicious twist by just adding someHappy Way Whey Protein that I will add that creamy factor while keeping things low carb and delicious!


To add that crunch factor I included some of the Eaton hemp seeds with the shell, such a game changer! And it really brings up a good crunch and maple touch without all the sugar and instead some healthy omega-3's!


Key Ingredients:

Adding some protein powder for extra creaminess and a satisfying filling. I have been also obsessed with the Happy Way Choc Caramel, the ingredients are simple, it even includes some maca and MCT in... plus the taste is just delicious, they even have a vegan option.



Caramel and chocolate, the dream team! These are simply perfect for meal prep, no need to bake anything at all to enjoy and attack that sweet tooth at any moment. The bread with a touch of chocolate and pumpkin, along with the crunch of the hemp seeds and amazing toppings.


The base of the Cake Bars:

The base is made with simple ingredients, Happy Way Choc Caramel, almond flour and coconut flour to keep it nutrient dense and gluten free. This combination keep things fluffy, low carb, gluten free and flavorful. Have you tried baking with whey protein? This is a sign you need to try it!
