One of our favorite aspects of fall is all the pumpkin based desserts. We’re lovers of classic pumpkin pie and such but this pumpkin bread has a sweet twist! With the added peanut butter and chocolate chips, it’s like eating a fall themed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Yum! This recipe, while appearing difficult to the eye, is actually not very difficult at all. It just requires a little time to make. And trust us, it’s worth it.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, from the can
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, divided

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk greek yogurt, pumpkin, eggs, and peanut butter in a large bowl until no lumps remain.
  3. Stir in sugars, pumpkin pie spice, and baking soda. Stir in flour.
  4. Stir about 3/4 cup chocolate chips into batter.
  5. Pour into prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean at the edge of the bread. The bread may fall in the middle slightly, that’s okay. At a 30 minute baking time, the top center portion may be underdone – I like it that way. If you prefer it to be more done, add about 5 minutes baking time.
  • Tip: Slice the cooled bread and freeze in individual baggies for a quick snack!
