Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread is one of my favorite of pumpkin treats. Let’s face it though, I love all things pumpkin. But this involves chocolate and warm bread.

So, since it’s bread it’s totally justifiable as breakfast, right?¬†Even with all the delicious chocolate chips. I mean it even has orange juice in it. Which I know might sound a bit weird, but believe me it works so well with this bread.

This recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread makes quite a bit; 2 9-inch loaves or 3 8-inch loaves. Or if you’re like me and don’t have that many of one kind of pan, I made 1 9 inch and 4 mini loaves (which baked for about 40-45 minutes). I really like baking the smaller loaves since they’re easier to give as gifts and also to justify eating in one sitting. Not that I’ve done that. Today.

So this bread is super yummy and fall-ish and really quite easy to pull together. And now that it’s starting to get cooler, it’s not nearly as much of an imposition to turn your oven on for an hour. Totally worth it.
