Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread will make you crave the combination of pumpkin and chocolate all year long!

Even though Fall means pumpkin, I tend to think that pumpkin up with chocolate is a better idea than eating it alone.

Isn’t everything better with chocolate? My vote is yes.

This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread is no exception. It’s one of those foods that is like a total surprise for your taste buds and in a very, very, very good way.

While the bread is baking, you smell the pumpkin and get excited to try to the first bite…but when you taste that first bite and get the perfect bite-sized goodness of pumpkin and chocolate…forget about it.

Nothing else will matter at that moment.

What I really love about this pumpkin chocolate chip bread recipe is that I can make it knowing that it’s extremely versatile. I

t’s perfect for a cool fall or winter morning, with a nice hot cup of coffee or just as delicious served as a dessert after dinner, paired up with a dollop of whipped cream.

No matter how you decide to treat your taste buds with this delicious bread, do it and do it often. It’s okay to spoil yourself every now and then!

ADDITIONAL BAKING TIPS

DO NOT OVER MIX: It’s super easy to overmix this pumpkin chocolate chip bread batter because the batter is on the “thinner side”. So it’s super important when adding the flour mixture to the wet ingredients to only mix until just combined. Meaning you will still see some flour in your mixing bowl. Overmixing leads to dense, dry, yucky bread!

PUMPKIN: Just a reminder, make sure you use 100% pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.

FREEZE IT: This bread freezes very well for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, place bread in the refrigerator overnight to thaw. Then place the bread on your kitchen counter top for about 30-60 minutes to allow it to come to room temperature before slicing and enjoying.
