A great fall treat! For a different twist, try adding 1 cup fresh cranberries instead of chocolate chips.

This is a moist well balanced quick bread with a nice punch of cinnamon. The batter will be thick so be careful not to overwork it in the bowl. I was able to yield two 8"x3.75" loaves with this recipe perfect for snacking and gifting. Definitely a keeper.

This is a good base recipe but I thought I needed to be a little less sweet a little more pumpkin-y and have a little more spice. I made this as muffins rather than bread. Decrease the sugar to 1/2 1/3 c (I actually used 1/2 c Truvia 1/3 c sugar and it turned out beautifully). I decreased the chocolate chips to 2/3 c. I used 1 c 3 tbsp of pumpkin puree which added moisture as well as pumpkin flavor. I added 1/4 tsp cloves 1/8 tsp nutmeg and the juice of a 1" piece of fresh ginger root.

I like this recipe a lot. Mine came out moist and just sweet enough. I like that the recipe calls for butter and not oil. Works great with gluten free flour (whichI used)... I also used the william sonoma mini loaf pan and tented with foil half way through cooking. My cooking time was only 25-30 minutes (I have made it twice now). 1 hour is way too long for my oven. Kids love.

This is a keeper! Threw this together last night because we had company coming. I doubled the recipe and made one loaf and used the rest of the batter in a muffin pan. I used one cup of cranberries and one cup of chocolate chips. I added a few extra spices that we all enjoy and a little vanilla. This was a hit with everyone. I will be keeping this recipe on hand to use again.

This bread did not have a real pumpkin flavor it tasted more like a rich chocolate cake. Still was quite delicious and super moist.

This was really easy to make and my little guy and I just loved it. It's a mom win when snack time or dessert includes a little bit of veg.

I used two 8x4 loaf pans and cooked it about 30 minutes. Very delicious and great for gift giving!! I want to try using the whole can of pumpkin but need to figure it out since the recipe calls for only one cup. Anyone try that yet?
