1can pumpkin puree
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, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar and salt together and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the pumpkin, eggs, applesauce, water and vanilla. Transfer this to the large bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until a few dry streaks remain. Fold in the chocolate chips until everything just comes together - do not over mix.
Bake in your preheated oven for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Bread should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator and will keep for several days. It can also be frozen and thawed.Source: Slightly adapted from my coworker Amanda
