  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, mash bananas well. Add in egg and whisk together. Mix in butter, vanilla, pumpkin and brown sugar until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and stir. *If you want to add pumpkin pie spice, add it into the dry ingredients.
  • Fold in ¾ c chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into a well greased bread pan and top with remaining chocolate chips.
  • Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can tent a piece of foil loosely over top in the last 20 minutes to keep the top from browning too much if preferred. Allow to cool before serving.



  • I used chocolate chunks but chips will work just fine. My grocery has these amazing dark chocolate chunks and I love them, but so not necessary if you can't find any.
  • Please make sure you have fresh baking powder and baking soda. If these aren't fresh or past expiration, that can impact the success of your pumpkin bread.
  • More chocolate chips are ALWAYS ok.
