This moist Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread is full of delicious spices and chocolate chips. Better make a double batch because one loaf won’t last long!
Nothing says fall like a warm slice of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread slathered with melting butter. Enjoy a slice with a mug of steaming coffee or tea!
This pumpkin bread even tastes great after being refrigerated. Pop a slice in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up before eating it for a “fresh out of the oven” feel.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread FAQs
1. Can this pumpkin bread be made into mini loaves for gifts? Yes, divide the batter into greased mini loaf pans. Depending on the size of the pans the baking time will vary. Some mini loaf pans are only slightly bigger than a muffin pan and other mini pans are bigger. Bake at 350˚F for 30-45 minutes, depending on the pan size.
2. How can I turn this bread into muffins? Fill lined muffin tin cups 2/3 of the way. Bake at 350˚F for 20-25 minutes.
3. Would this still turn out if I leave out the chocolate chips? Definitely! (BUT my opinion is that everything is better with chocolate!)
4. Can you tell me how to freeze pumpkin bread? Wrap the completely cooled bread tightly in plastic wrap and place in a gallon-sized freezer bag. You can also cut the loaf into slices, wrap the individual slices, and store them in a gallon-sized freezer bag.
5. How long does pumpkin bread last in the freezer? Pumpkin bread lasts 2-3 months in the freezer.
