Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease and lightly flour a 9x5x3-in loaf pan
In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, eggs, sugar, and oil.
Sift the flour, baking soda, French gray salt, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and baking powder in a bowl. Stir into the pumpkin mixture and combine, but do not overmix. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, but not dry. Do not overbake; the bread should be moist. Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 min. Turn out onto the rack to cool completely.
