  • Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Stir pumpkin pie filling, applesauce, sugar, egg, egg whites, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger together in a separate bowl. Whisk flour mixture into pumpkin mixture until batter is well combined; fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar instead of the 1/2 cup white sugar if desired.

Very yummy and moist bread- trust me you won't miss the oil in this bread! I had some pumpkin pie spice that I had mixed up on hand and used 1 1/2 tsp of that and it was perfectly spiced. My kids loved it great after school treat thanks for the recipe! Read More

I was craving something sweet but healthy and this did the trick. The applesauce and pumpkin make this bread very moist and adding in the chocolate chips is a must if you need that extra kick of sweetness. It's good for breakfast as well as it has a lot of healthy goodness to start the morning. Read More

I just made this and it's excellent! Moist ad holds up just like a bread filled with oils and sugar. Definitely something worth trying. Could maybe use more spices so feel free to toss a bit more than called for. Read More

This was lighter than I thought it would be and turned out very well. I only had pumpkin purée instead of pumpkin pie filling so I added a half cup of sugar and.5 times more spices. Great overall recipe! We'll make it again. Read More

Good low fat version. Very moist. I didn t add chocolate chips and I added slightly more spice as a reviewer suggested and I sprinkled walnuts on top. Very flavourful. My mum loved it. She said it was as good as anything you would buy at a cafe. Read More

This was wonderful! Very easy to make flavourful and moist. Unfortunately all I had in the house was all-purpose white flour so I had to use that instead of the whole wheat flour called for but other than that I followed the recipe as is. It did need a full hour in the oven. A nice change of pace when you're tired of banana bread. It tastes even better the next day. Thanks for sharing! Read More
