Oh my gosh it’s pumpkin season. Happy dance commences: now.    Alright so, it might be a tad bit early to bust out the pumpkin but my mother gave me about 57 giant cans of pumpkin puree and I’ve been eying it in the pantry for months now, just begging to be turned into muffins and cupcakes and cookies and bread. It’s been feeling very Fall-ish around here lately and though I’m basically in tears just thinking about the end of summer, I can’t help but be a tad (read: over the top) excited for boots and sweaters and soup and all things Autumn. So out came the pumpkin. First up: browned butter chocolate chip pumpkin bread.

Jealous of your pumpkin stash here! This bread looks incredible. I can only imagine what the browned butter does for it!

Love pumpkin bread! This one looks easy to make. Pinned.

Oh my gosh, look at the texture in that bread. And those melt-y chocolate chips. This looks like absolute heaven. I normally don’t buy pumpkin, but I think it’s time to change that. I can’t wait until Thanksgiving, I’ll be able to make insane amounts of this bread and I won’t seem crazy. Of course, before then I will be trying it. Pinning!

Great recipe Tiffany – I love the sound of brown butter!

Hey! I just wanted to let you know that there is no measurement listed for the chocolate chips. (:

    Ohhhh dear, thank you 🙂 🙂

Your recipe does not list the measurement for chocolate chips used…

    Sorry about that, updating it now!

Hi, I’ve been using a bread machine to make all my bread and I was wondering if it’s possible to convert this recipe into one that’s bread machine friendly. Do you have any advice?

    Hi! I wish I had some great advice for you but unfortunately I have zero experience using a bread maker so I’m totally unsure what (if any) changes might need to be made here… so sorry! If you do figure out a way to do it I’d love to hear how it goes!
