The Best Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

One of my favorite things about fall is being in the kitchen and baking. It’s so comforting to have the oven on, warming up the house and making something sweet that we can all enjoy. One of my go-to recipes is bread. I love making banana bread, but when I got my hands on this recipe for pumpkin bread, I knew I had to give it a try!

This bread recipe is one of the easiest ever! There are only 5 steps to making it and it turns out amazing. The bread is so moist and flavorful. The chocolate chips are the perfect addition for a little sweetness. I love having this with a steaming hot cup of coffee. It’s so comforting.

Additions & Substitutions 

Chocolate Chips: You can switch up the type of chocolate chips you use in your bread. I like to stick with classic, semi-sweet chips. But, you could use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate! 

Nuts: A common addition to this bread is chopped nuts. If you’re a fan, it really does add a nice crunch! Some of my favorite nuts to add are walnuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts.

You can use this same recipe to make muffins! Simply divide the batter into a greased muffin pan and bake for 17-20 minutes at the same temp.

How to Store

Bread will stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 10 days. I like to pop each piece in the microwave for about 10 seconds before eating the leftovers. The warmth makes it taste like it’s fresh out of the oven.

You can freeze your bread in an airtight freezer bag for up to 3 months. Simply thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.

Author: Jennifer Fishkind
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×5” loaf pan with non-stick spray.

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt tuntil combined in a large mixing bowl.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until combined. Whisk in the pumpkin, oil, and orange juice.

Combine together the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients and gently mix them together. Do not over mix and know that there will be a few lumps. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 60-65 minutes (TIP: adjust the oven rack to the lower third position this will help prevent the top from browning too quickly). Make sure to loosely cover the bread with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent the top from browning too much. Insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf, if it comes out clean with just a few crumbs, the bread is finished baking!

Allow bread to cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack.
