  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4-1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips plus more for sprinkling on top of the loaf!


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place oven rack to the middle/lower third of the oven. Spray a 9x5 bread pan with nonstick spray.* Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk 1 ½ cups flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt together. Set aside. 
  • In medium bowl whisk the eggs, sugar, and brown sugar until combined. Add the pumpkin, oil, vanilla, and milk. Whisk until all ingredients are combined. 
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir using a rubber spatula. 
  • In small bowl add the remaining ¼ cup flour. Toss in the chocolate chips so that they are covered in the flour. 
  • Add the chocolate chips to the bread batter and stir to combine. Don’t overmix. 
  • Place the batter in the loaf pan. I like to sprinkle a few extra chocolate chips on top of the batter once in the pan. Bake for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. (Mine took about 68 minutes).** Also, if you feel like the top is browning excessively, you can cover the loaf with tin foil to prevent more browning from occurring. 
  • Remove from oven and let cool in the pan on a wire rack.
  • This bread can be frozen! Just wrap it in tin foil, place in a zip top bag and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to thaw, remove from the freezer and place in refrigerator overnight, then bring it to room temperature. 



*I use Bakers Joy cooking spray. 
**This was baked at a high altitude. I suggest you begin checking the bread around the 58 minute mark, just to make sure you don't overbake it!
