This is my family’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread recipe that we bake every year. The scent of the pumpkin baking just permeates the kitchen and seeps to other areas of the house. It’s a quick bread recipe, so you don’t have to wait on any yeast to rise. I eat a slice with a cup of coffee in the morning or enjoy as an afternoon treat. You don’t have to be an experienced baker to make this quick bread recipe, just a pumpkin & chocolate chip fan!

What makes this recipe extra special is the streusel topping. It’s a sweet crumble topping that adds a bit of crunch on top & why I’m always eating my slice from the top down. This recipe is a great bread to bring for Thanksgiving dinner, give away as a holiday gift or make on the weekends to enjoy during the week.
You can even freeze the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread for up to 3 months. Just thaw and slice as usual. After baking, let the loaves cool completely. Then, you can wrap each one in plastic wrap and aluminum foil to give it extra protection and keep the moisture in.
