Who would have thought that pumpkin and peanut butter go together?  I’ve found many times that they are a really yummy combination – check out the pumpkin peanut butter fudge recipe here for an example.  And try it.  And see if you can stop at just one piece – I dare you!

And this is going along with my quest to change every oil/butter reference in baking for peanut butter.  Because I love peanut butter (or couldn’t you tell?).  

This recipe produces nice and moist pumpkin peanut butter bread, with the flavors of both pumpkin and peanut butter coming through, the crunch of some walnuts and the bursts of chocolate chips all married together in one mouthful.  You may like it with some sort of buttery spread, more peanut butter (!), or just have it as it is.  Experiment at will!

Recipe Notes

The combination of milk and vinegar is a make-your-own buttermilk. It works with cows, almond, coconut and any other type of milk - and much cheaper than the store-bought buttermilk.
