Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with Greek Yogurt

I have been wanting to create a new pumpkin bread recipe since it is my favorite thing to serve on Thanksgiving morning. This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with Greek Yogurt is my newest favorite! It’s so easy to prepare that my daughter, Leigh, did most of the work on her own. Feel free to omit the chocolate chips if you like, but it’s not overly sweet. I also used chopped pecans, but walnuts would work great too (or you can omit them if you have nut allergies). Use nonfat Greek yogurt for best results (Chobani or Fage work great). This also makes a great holiday food gift, and I plan to make a lot more! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your holiday 🙂

  1. This has a lot of similar to the pumpkin bundt cake I made and LOVE. It’s my fave cake on my whole blog and although I use sour cream in it if I have it, Greek yogurt is fine too. In so many ways, our recipes are really close except I used more chocolate 🙂 You are healthier my dear than I am!

  2. This is delicious. So moist it feels like its been soaked in pumpkin. I love the chocolate treat with it. I think it needs a touch more cinnamon but I love cinnamon. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

  3. Making this recipe for the second time this week. First time I made it into muffins and they were delightful! They taste great with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream.

  5. Making this for the second time this week. I use fresh pumpkin instead of canned but just wanted to say thanks for the recipe. It is hands down the best bread I have ever made and the kids love it!
