This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread recipe makes two loaves and uses one full can of pumpkin. Save one loaf for you and take the other to a friend, or freeze the second loaf to enjoy later on. This bread is simple, classic, and delicious!
If there’s one thing I love about fall, it’s pumpkin desserts! And now that it’s officially fall, I’m happy to share my recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with you all. And it’s a good one! Let me tell you why.
I’m a firm believer of having chocolate in every bite. To make sure that is achieved, I use mini chocolate chips. It just feels more decadent that way. I’m also a lover of a flavorful, spiced pumpkin loaf. It just makes it feel more warm and inviting. My blend of homemade pumpkin pie spice has lots of those wonderful warm and inviting flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and allspice. It’s heavenly! (You can absolutely use a pre-made version from the store though.)
The only downfall to most recipes for pumpkin chocolate chip bread is that they only use 1 cup of pumpkin, so you have some leftovers that you never know what to do with. (Well, I do have one idea.) So I’ve created this recipe to solve that problem! It makes TWO loaves, but you can freeze the second one, or be nice and share with a neighbor or friend.
You can also easily use this recipe for muffins. Just bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-18 minutes. I wouldn’t blame you for not wanting to wait almost an hour for the loaf to cook. It’s tasty either way.
