CHOCOLATE CHIP PUMPKIN BREAD INGREDIENTS

You will need:

  • 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

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

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.

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHOCOLATE CHIP PUMPKIN BREAD RECIPE

STEP ONE: Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F to prevent the bread from browning too soon. Spray a 9×5” loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

STEP TWO: In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt together until combined. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until combined. Whisk in the pumpkin, oil, and orange juice.

STEP THREE: Pour these wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently mix them together. Be sure not to over mix –there will be a few lumps. Gently fold in the chocolate chips, being sure to taste a few!

STEP FOUR: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 60-65 minutes, making 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!

PRO TIP: 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 temperature.

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

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: 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.

IN THE FREEZER: 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.

    This combination in a bread is so good! I have a similar recipe that I have been making every Fall for over 30 years. Mine doesn’t have the OJ though. I might have to try this to see what the difference is!
