Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe by Bakerette.com

I love the fall because along with it comes delicious fall recipes–one such love is pumpkin chocolate chip bread! I had some leftover pumpkin puree from the pumpkin cream cheese fruit dip I made, so I put the puree to use in this delicious fall bread. It’s much lower in sugar than your average pumpkin chocolate chip bread, which averages around 3 cups sugar–a bonus for those who are more sugar conscious! I enhanced this bread recipe by adding cinnamon, ginger, and ground cloves. However, if you don’t have those ingredients on hand, you can make it without the spices and you’ll find it is still delicious!

This spicy pumpkin bread dotted with mini chocolate chips makes a fun seasonal treat. Bakerette.com
