Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

It’s fall and do you know what that means? Pumpkin chocolate chip bread. Fall isn’t fall without it. I have been making this pumpkin chocolate chip bread for years. It is a staple in our home every fall season. As soon as I smell pumpkin bread baking in the oven, I know fall has arrived.

This pumpkin chocolate chip bread makes a great fall snack, dessert, or even a sweet breakfast treat. The spiced bread is moist and dotted with chocolate chips. Cut a thick slice, grab a glass of milk, and enjoy! This recipe makes three large loaves-so be prepared to share. I don’t think your friends and family will complain if you show up on their doorstep with a fresh loaf of pumpkin chocolate chip bread. They will accept it with open arms.

Start the fall season off right by making pumpkin chocolate chip bread. Happy Fall everyone!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Yield: 3 loaves bread

Cook Time: 60 minutes


3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups granulated sugar
1 (15 ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin
1 cup canola oil
2/3 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray three 9x5 inch loaf pans with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, canola oil, water, vanilla, and eggs. Mix until smooth.

4. Slowly blend in flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Evenly divide batter between the three loaf pans.

5. Bake for 60 minutes, or until browned and a toothpick comes out clean. Remove loaves from oven and cool in pans on a wire rack for 15 minutes. With a knife, go around the bread and loosen the loaves. Remove from pan and cool completely before slicing.

*Note-this recipe makes a lot of bread, so be prepared to share or put a loaf in the freezer for later.

    I just made this with applesauce to replace all but 2T of the oil. It is so delicious! I will probably decrease the sugar next time, just for our tastes. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!!!

    I made this last year a BUNCH!! This year I made a low-fat version and it tastes just as great! I can finally add it to my blog! Yay!! I saved 1,877 calories from your original recipe by cutting out the oil and subbing it with applesauce! I also switched out two of the eggs for egg beater’s egg whites. Furthermore, I added in some whole wheat flour and extra chocolate chips on top! :) Thanks for the original recipe! I linked back to you on my blog!

    Check out my recipe:

    Thanks for making a somewhat healthier version of a family favorite! Most recipes call for an entire cup of oil just for 1 loaf!!! I recently found your site and LOVE it!!

    this recipe is absolutely fantastic! I’ve made it twice, and everyone has love it!

    Thank you for this perfect recipe! I made these yesterday after buying two cans of pumpkin that I wanted to bake with. A quick internet search brought me to your blog – this was the first recipe that popped up (in case you need assurance that Google is doing what you’d like it to do). :)

    Anyway – I didn’t have three loaf pans (I’m a 23-year-old room-renter in the suburbs of DC – I don’t have the best-stocked kitchen), so I used muffin tins. It made one large loaf (the 9X5 pan) and 18 muffins. The muffins are great because I like to grab them on my way out of the house in the morning before work. I didn’t time how long it took the muffins to bake but my guess would be between 15-18 minutes (I just waited until the toothpick came out clean).

    I also bet that if you whipped up either a good cream cheese or peanut butter frosting, it would be delicious on these (you could even eliminate the chocolate chips so that the frosting would be the sweet component). What a great and versatile recipe! Thank you!!

    This was really good although a little too sweet even cutting back the sugar to 2.5 cups but that’s just a personal preference.I would like to tweak this recipe and use just honey. I used fresh roasted kuri squash which makes fantastic sweets! I used 3 cups spelt flour and 1 cup brown rice flour(adds great nutty flavor). I used coconut oil for the oil because it’s really good for you and it tastes great in baked goods. I added ground clove to the spices as well. In place of the water I used buttermilk and had to use extra due to smaller eggs and extra flour so probably a cup of buttermilk. I also added reconstituted dried cranberries along with semi sweet baking chips.

    Made this recipe today…used 1/2 cup of spelt flour and 2-1/2cups white flour, plus added flaxseed. The results are delicious. Made 6 cupcakes with leftover batter. Those did not need to cook as long.

    Wondering ifi could substitute whole wheat flour for the all purpose white?

  35. Two Peas — October 6, 2012 @ 10:39 am

    Sure! Enjoy!

  36. Heather — October 11, 2012 @ 12:45 pm

    I FINALLY made this bread that I’ve been wanting to make for the past year or so. I ended up doing 2 full loaves and 2 mini loaf pans. This is absolutely amazing! I took 1 loaf to work and its almost gone. I am gifting 2 of the mini loaves and I can’t decide if I should freeze the 2nd full loaf or just eat it. ha! Its almost a decadent cake slice and not bread by any means. I find that if you nuke a slice in the microwave it makes it even better! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
