Peanut Butter Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

October is for showering love on pumpkins. I’m doing my share.

There’s been pumpkin doughnut muffins, pumpkin cheesecake truffles, chocolate pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin rice pudding and now pumpkin peanut butter chocolate chip bread.

I don’t know why pumpkin and peanut butter are such a rare pair. While they seem odd together the truth is they make a delicious match. So downright dreamy I swear  they were meant for each other.

Every bite of this delectable bread comes packed with sweetened pumpkin and peanut butter punctuated by subtle hits of chocolate. Perfectly moist, dense and terribly addicting.

Once the news get out we’ll be seeing pumpkin and peanut butter creations everywhere. A win-win for pumpkin lovers everywhere.

You’re very welcome.

    PB and pumpkin – you are right, it’s definitely an odd pair but one that just seems to work! Too of my favorite flavors. I haven’t made pumpkin bread since last year, but I need to get on it soon! I could go for a war slice of this right now as we battle horrible weather conditions outside!

    I’ve been toying with the idea of making a pumpkin-infused peanut butter but haven’t been SURE that the flavors would work. Consider me officially convinced! Love the sound of this bread!

    You are great my dear :) Your suggestions are always surprising, I never heard before of pumpkin and peanut butter combined together and I like the idea very much. Your cake is absolutely amazing, a mix of ingredients I love. Sorry, the pumpkin you used is already cooked, it’s right? Thanks :)
    Have a great Sunday

    Dear Reeni, I love peanut butter so much! I could eat a jar as a snack!
    The pumpkin and peanut butter with the chocolate chips is wonderful. This would be so good toasted with butter in the morning. Blessings dear. Catherine xoxo
