Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Chip Bread

Desserts | October 7, 2017 | By

Hey everyone!  As promised, this month is going to be surrounded around our fall favorite – pumpkin!  I thought about the cliche ‘pumpkin spice’ foods, but frankly, I am not that basic. LOL . So I tried to get recipes that were a little off the beaten path and something that maybe a lot of us had never had before, myself included!  You’ll have to let me know what you think if you make any of these. If you love pumpkin as much as I do, I think you will love them!

Lets start with a really EASY recipe – pumpkin dark chocolate chip bread.  If you have not noticed, I prefer cooking with dark chocolate verses milk chocolate. That is international and for a couple of reasons. 1)) its healthier for you.  Dark chocolate has less fat so its better to eat in large quantities, which you know I do all the time!  2) It provides a little bit better balance to the sweetness of a lot of my baked goods.  If you want this recipe to be a little sweeter, throw in milk chocolate! 

Lets get cooking, shall we?
This recipe is going to seem like there are a LOT of ingredients, its mostly spices that you will likely have if you have ever baked before.  Breathe – you got this! 🙂

You want to make sure that this batter is similar to cake batter, too think and its going to be too dense.  You want this light and fluffy!
