Skinny Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread is full of delicious flavor and has the most amazing texture, with very little fat! A light way to enjoy a fall treat!
We are halfway through PUMPKIN WEEK! So far we have Pumpkin Donuts and Pumpkin Waffles. Today, I am lightening things up a bit with Skinny Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread. I love trying to make baked goods skinnier when I can, especially when you can barely tell the difference! This bread is super moist and is full of great flavor, but has very little fat. And there are chocolate chips, which make everything taste better!
One of my absolute favorite treats to get for myself is the Pumpkin Bread at Starbucks. I just love it, and am tempted by it literally every time I go into Starbucks (so basically every morning…). When Starbucks changed to La Boulange baked goods in NYC, they got rid of the pumpkin bread for a while. I literally had a mini breakdown. Luckily, they brought it back!
But what I do not love about the pumpkin bread is how many calories/fat/sodium are in there. Not the best way to start the day. And so that’s why I made this Skinny Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread! It has all the flavor (and texture!) of the real stuff, with a fraction of the fat.
This recipe is very similar to my Pumpkin Yogurt Loaf. I recently discovered that pumpkin and chocolate taste delicious together (not sure why it took me so long to realize this!), so I decided to add some chocolate chips to my pumpkin bread. Great decision! I love chocolate chips in muffins and quick bread, and so does TheBetterHalf. He’s not even the biggest pumpkin fan, and he loved this bread.
I love making skinny/healthy breads – like these!
