The leaves are changing, the weather is starting to cool off, and Trader Joes has all their pumpkin items in stock. It’s officially fall. Now, I don’t know about you but I LOVE everything pumpkin. Always have. There’s something about the smell, the feeling I get when I get a big wiff of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or toasted pecan, that makes me all warm inside.
Out of all the fall-inspired eats, pumpkin chocolate chip bread has always been my favorite. I’ve tried a few recipes out and this one is a winner! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
This fall-inspired recipe is perfect for a quick breakfast, snack, or even dessert!
