Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread
Pumpkin and chocolate go so well together. After making my kiddos their Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancake Bites last weekend, I could not help but think of myself. I love breads for breakfast and dessert during the fall months. I like to heat up a slice to enjoy with my coffee. I made the most perfect Apple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Stuffed Bread and I remembered how much I love breads in the fall.
Quick breads are so easy to whip up and toss in the oven on a chilly day. The house gets nice and warm and the scent of fall invades the house. Gotta love it!
This pumpkin bread is so super simple. Since I loaded in the chocolate chips, the kiddos decided that they thought they might like my bread. I was hoping they wouldn’t so that I could enjoy this loaf mostly for myself. No such luck, they really liked it and polished off most of my loaf, ha ha.
Luckily during the fall months, I keep a nice stock of canned pumpkin in my pantry so I can make another loaf of Pumpkin bread. I might have to leave out the chocolate chips if I care to have any leftovers.
If you keep pumpkin and chocolate chips on hand, you will most likely have everything you need to make this super yummy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread. Since it requires few ingredients, you will find that it comes together quite quickly. Your house can be smelling like fall in no time at all.
