Kabocha Squash & Chocolate Chip & Raisin Bread

Kobocha Squash is another goody that we have been getting in our CSA box every week. The kobocha squash is a Japanese pumpkin that has a yummy sweet taste just like the pumpkin we all know. 
I have been playing around with a few different recipes like Kobocha Squash Risotto but nothing beats a good ol loaf of sweet bread! This recipe makes a great dessert or a yummy breakfast treat.

This recipe calls for half a cooked kobocha squash. Cut the squash in half and remove the seeds and place in a baking dish with 1/2 cup water, drizzle with a little olive oil and bake for 1 hour. Peel off the skin and set aside to cool. If you dont have a kobocha squash use a small baking pumpkin.

Preheat the oven to 350. 
  • 2 cups wheat flour 
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

    Mix the above dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • 2 cups cooked kobocha squash (or pumpkin)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

    Place all of the above wet ingredients into a large food processor and mix until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

    Fold in the raisins and chocolate chips. Pour batter into a non-stick baking dish and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
