Chocolate chip pumpkin bread


Boy do I have a yummy pumpkin bread recipe for you today! This bread is super soft and moist! The best part? It tastes even better the second day! I think it gives the bread more time to soak in all the pumpkin goodness. Mmm…

This recipe makes great chocolate chip pumpkin muffins as well. My whole family loved this and it’s definitely a new family favorite.

  1. This sounds so good I surely will have to try it! Yum Yum Yum!!!

  2. Looks delicious! Pinning for later! :) My husband loves anything with chocolate chips in it –so I’m sure this will be a new family favorite! :)

  3. Looks delish! But am I missing when to add the chips?

    • Add them in after you add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and then sprinkle a few on top! I’ll add it to the recipe too, thanks for catching that! :)

  4. Ohh, this looks super delicious! Can’t wait to try!

  5. This makes me want a slice so bad! This looks so yummy!

  6. I am from Australia we don’t have canned pumpkin or pumpkin spice. If I cook and purée pumpkin that should work I hope and can you let me know what spice is in the pumpkin spice. Thank you I enjoy reading all your posts.

  7. Oh my! Found your recipe on Pinterest, and it looks so good! I love pumpkin! =)

  8. Just wanted to let you know the recipe doesn’t mention adding the vanilla! I’m assuming you add with the remaining wet ingredients. Also to make muffins out of these how would you adjust time/temp?

    • Hi Melissa! Thanks for catching that, I will change it right now! Yes, you add it with the remaining wet ingredients. I would keep the temperature the same and cook for probably 12-15 minutes. :)
