Pumpkin… it’s my new obsession. I’ve never baked, nor cooked with pumpkin before, and now that I have… let’s just say I’m never turning back. These days I just want to make everything pumpkin. Literally everything I think of, somehow pumpkin makes it’s way into the recipe… next up this weekend is pumpkin waffles!

So what’s better than pumpkin you ask? Well, pumpkin AND chocolate. Yes, we’ve officially entered fall baking heaven. Here’s a delicious recipe for a moist pumpkin chocolate chip bread. I would eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner – that’s how good it is.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

1 and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1/2 cup olive oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/3 cup chocolate chips


First pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Next, in a medium sized bowl combine the dry ingredients, and in a large bowl combine the wet ingredients.

Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, making sure it is well blended. Mix in your chocolate chips. Once everything is mixed together, line a bread pan with parchment paper, and pour the batter into the pan.

Cook for 50-60 minutes.

Make the best of the seasonal pumpkin and bake this bread – you won’t regret it.
