Total Time1 hr 15 mins
- 1 and 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour can substitute with all-purpose
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips of choice
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease or line a standard 9"x5" loaf pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the sugars, pumpkin, and applesauce. Transfer this to the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Gently fold everything together until a few dry streaks remain. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Transfer the batter to your prepared loaf pan and bake in your preheated oven for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow the bread to cool before slicing and serving.
Leftover bread should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator and will keep for several days.
