Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

It has been a loooong summer here in Phoenix. We have been so excited to light our spice scented candles, pull out our thickest knit throw blankets, and most importantly- bake all the pumpkin things. Is that a ‘basic’ statement? Yes. Do we care? Not even a tiny bit. Commence the PUMPKIN flavored everything.

A little pro pumpkin tip for ya… When you are buying your pumpkin puree, make sure the ONLY ingredient is pumpkin, and not “pumpkin pie filling”. The “filling” has added spices and sugar. While we are lovers of spice and sugar, that will alter this recipe a bit.

We are especially proud of this recipe for a few reasons. It obviously scratches a big fall urge- pumpkin in the oven, pumpkin in your belly. But 2: it is an extremely tasty and low sugar alternative to traditional Pumpkin Bread; for example, Starbucks Pumpkin Bread has 39 grams of sugar per slice. YIKES.

We wrote all about the health benefits of pumpkin on our Cinnamon Crumble Pumpkin Bread if you are interested, as a side bar. Educate yourself while you feed yourself. What a gift, guys, we tell ya.
