Sweet Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Chocolate chips make this moist and perfectly delicious Pumpkin Bread even more irresistible! Serve this bread as an appetizer at any fall or winter gathering. Nothing is better than a loaf of delicious bread in the cool, fall weather. Great for the Thanksgiving dinner spread, too!


If you could pick a word to describe someone who makes nearly a thousand cookies within a five-day span, would "insane" come to mind? Because I'm feeling insane. My hands and feet hurt and everything I glance at resembles a cookie. Two more days of cookie chaos and then...vacation. Ahhhh.

In between batches of delicious cookies from Cookie Remix, I've managed to squeeze in a few loaves of this incredible Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread. Now, listen. I've tasted a lot of pumpkin bread in my life. Some bad, some ok and some good. But before now I'd never tasted a recipe that made my heart sing. This pumpkin bread makes my heart sing. It is moist, pumpkiny, chocolatey and irresistible. Omit the chocolate chips for a more genuine experience, but I promise the chocolate adds a touch of delicious.


I made one loaf and wanted more, so I made another. Then I realized I should include more in my diet than cookies and pumpkin bread, so I sent the remains to work with Dan. And now I want to make another loaf. I'm a mess.


Promise me that you will add this pumpkin bread to your Thanksgiving menu this year. Your guests will love you. ENJOY and thank you for being here! Have a great start to your week!
