Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

It’s September so you know what that means…everything PUMPKIN! ♥

Truthfully, I make Pumpkin Spice Smoothie, Pumpkin DipPumpkin Spice Buttermilk Pancakes and this delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread all year long.

I have been making this bread for years and I’m finally getting around to sharing my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with all of you. I always say, “it’s not Fall until I enjoy a slice or two of pumpkin bread.” So I always try to make it as soon as September hits. This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread makes a perfect fall snack, dessert, or if you are like me, for breakfast. Start the start of fall off right by making this delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread.

 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.

MAKE AHEAD: 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.
