One of my favorite things about fall is all the pumpkin recipes I get to bake! Sure, I can bake them all year long if I want to, but it’s definitely more encouraged this time of year. Pumpkin everything is all over the place, after all! It’s the perfect time to break out my much-loved homemade pumpkin chocolate chip bread.
I will tell you one thing though – one loaf just might not be enough. This stuff gets cleared out very quickly! The pumpkin flavor against the chocolate chips wrapped into some moist bread is the perfect recipe.

How to make chocolate chip pumpkin bread
PREPARE: Preheat the oven to 350F and spray a 9×10 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. You can also line your loaf pan with parchment paper, but this is not completely necessary.
MIX INGREDIENTS: In a large bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups of flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and the salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar and brown sugar. Add the pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, vanilla, and milk. Gently fold all the ingredients together with a rubber spatula. Be careful not to over mix the ingredients!
ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS: In a small bowl, toss the chocolate chips in remaining flour and then gently fold into the batter.
BAKE: Pour the batter into the loaf pan and if desired, add some extra chocolate chips on top. Bake in the oven for 55-75 minutes, making sure to check on the doneness of your batter after 55 minutes. If the bread begins to brown too quickly, tent it with foil.
SERVE: Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan and then slice into 10 equal slices. Serve and enjoy!
Can you freeze chocolate chip pumpkin bread?
You sure can! After baking, tightly wrap with plastic wrap or foil and freeze for up to 3 months. It will be safe beyond that time, but you’ll want to eat it within 3 months to enjoy it at its best quality.
How long will the bread last?
In the freezer, it will technically last indefinitely. However, you want to eat it within 3 months for the best quality. It will also last a week in the refrigerator or 3 days left out on the counter at room temperature.
How do you keep bread moist?
For the best results, you’ll want to wrap it tightly with plastic wrap or foil and place it into a freezer bag. This will prevent it from drying out and keep it as moist as possible.
