Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

The original pumpkin quick bread recipe came from the Better Homes and Garden cookbook, but I changed some things around. I subbed some of the all-purpose flour for whole wheat for added nutrients, and of course, added in a generous helping of chocolate chips. I bet this quick bread recipe would be great with pecans or walnuts too, or a cream cheese swirl!

This pumpkin quick bread recipe makes two full loaves so you can freeze one for later. It will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months if wrapped in Saran Wrap first, then placed in a freezer bag. This is a great way to bake once, but have a nice loaf of chocolate chip pumpkin bread to snack on later!
