PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BREAD

Our yummy, moist pumpkin choc chip bread has been on our minds lately. IMG_5354

The temperature has dropped a little (at least where we are) and its got us wanting and craving all the things we love to make in Fall! This is one of our family favorites! It smells so good coming out of the oven too! This time we made mini loaves instead of one regular size. They're too cute. And they're perfect to take to someone else too! If you have the mini loaf pans.....one recipe makes three mini loaves. This tasty bread will not disappoint!!
