One of my favorite things about fall is being in the kitchen and baking. It’s so comforting to have the oven on, warming up the house and making something sweet that we can all enjoy. One of my go-to recipes is bread. I love making banana bread, but when I got my hands on this recipe for pumpkin bread, I knew I had to give it a try!

This bread recipe is one of the easiest ever! There are only 5 steps to making it and it turns out amazing. The bread is so moist and flavorful. The chocolate chips are the perfect addition for a little sweetness. I love having this with a steaming hot cup of coffee. It’s so comforting.

If you are like me and love all things pumpkin and baking, then you are in for a huge treat with this pumpkin chocolate chip bread recipe. It’s delicious and easy to make. It’s the perfect baked good for fall!

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Additions & Substitutions 

Chocolate Chips: You can switch up the type of chocolate chips you use in your bread. I like to stick with classic, semi-sweet chips. But, you could use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate! 

Nuts: A common addition to this bread is chopped nuts. If you’re a fan, it really does add a nice crunch! Some of my favorite nuts to add are walnuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts.

How to make Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread Muffins

You can use this same recipe to make muffins! Simply divide the batter into a greased muffin pan and bake for 17-20 minutes at the same temp.

How to Store

Bread will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 10 days. I like to pop each piece in the microwave for about 10 seconds before eating the leftovers. The warmth makes it taste like it’s fresh out of the oven.

You can freeze your bread in an airtight freezer bag for up to 3 months. Simply thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
