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.

    what is “solid pack pumpkin”? I want to make this with what I already have and that is “Libby’s 100% pumpkin puree” it’s what I use for pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. I really want to make this!!!!
