Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bread

Posted on

To say that my posts have been a bit sporadic lately would be putting it nicely :).  I’ve been sitting on a stack of recipes that need posted for weeks now but life gets crazy, & well……you know how it goes.

So, I’m finally here today sharing one of my recent Fall favorites.  I’ve been a major pumpkin fan for many years, but I always thought pumpkin with other things sounded a bit odd, even pumpkin-chocolate chip breads or desserts, & y’all know how much I LOVE chocolate, right?!  Well, anyhow, I spotted this decadent bread on Pinterest a while back & thought I’d be brave & give it a try, being that pumpkin, peanut butter & chocolate chips are all at the top of my favorites list.

I was NOT disappointed!  This bread is 100% delicious.  Moist, rich & more of a cake {in my opinion} than a bread, but that’s kind of what sweet breads are, if we’re being honest.

Now of course, I had to change up the original recipe a bit, you know, to make it “healthier”. {I can’t even really say that without chuckling to myself.  Yes, I do feel using whole grains vs. white flour & unprocessed sugars such as sucanat vs. white or brown sugar is “healthier”, but just to be clear, I still wouldn’t consider this a “health food”.} Also, I did use homemade pumpkin puree, but canned pumpkin works wonderfully too.

This bread does come out very ooey-gooey in the middle, so if you’re not a fan of that gooey-ness, be sure to bake it a bit longer to make sure it’s all set.
