I absolutely adore pumpkin bread. Back in the day, my Fall Starbucks order would be a coffee with a slice of pumpkin bread, and it was a little bit of heaven. However, traditional pumpkin bread is super high in sugar, fat, and calories, plus it’s not particularly Weight Watchers friendly. A typical piece can run anywhere from 10 to 20 points just for the single slice.  I created this lighter Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread which is made with a few ingredients you probably have in your pantry anyway, and it’s significantly lower in sugar, fat, and WW points. 

It’s still light and fluffy, sweet, and full of pumpkin flavor (plus chocolate!). It’s perfect for the fall, and makes for a great dessert, snack, or even breakfast. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Making chocolate chip pumpkin bread

Making this delicious fall treat is super simple. First, you combine your dry ingredients, which are flour, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin spice in a small bowl. Mix together well to ensure there are no clumps of flour, sifting it, if need be. Set aside while you work with your wet ingredients.  

In a large mixing bowl, combine pumpkin, purée, applesauce, eggs, vanilla, and brown sugar. Mix well until it is totally smooth. I had your dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix it all together until you have a uniform better. Fold and chocolate chips, reserving some extra for topping, if desired.  

Pour your batter into a well greased 9 x 5 loaf pan and bake at 350F for 50 to 55 minutes until your bread is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool, then slice it into eight pieces and enjoy! It’s delicious warmed up or cold.
