  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray the inside of a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder together in a large bowl. Add pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, water, and eggs; beat until well incorporated and smooth. Gently stir in chocolate chips and almonds. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Really, really good snack bread. I didn't have any almonds, and it was still excellent. It's also great for slicing thick and freezing for school lunches.

I made this last week. My family loved it. It makes a large loaf, moist and tasty, and it keeps well. The only change I made was to omit the almonds. This one is a keeper!
