Great Harvest Pumpkin Chocolate Bread

I am in love with the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread at Great Harvest. So I searched and found the recipe for it. I doubled the batch and made 3 loaves plus 9 mini loaves. I took 1 of the loaves to work and they said it tasted exactly like Great Harvest bread!


2 1/2 cups white flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

3 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon salt

16 oz cooked or canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)

1 cup oil

4 eggs, beaten lightly

2/3 cup water

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two (9x5 inch) loaf pans or three (8x4 inch) loaf pans. Mix flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl; set aside. Mix pumpkin, oil, eggs, and 2/3 cup water together and stir into dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Place batter in prepared pans.Bake 60 or 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

**I don't know why the ingredients are double spaced but it wouldn't let me change it. Oh well.
