This great oven-baked chocolatey bread is simple to make and is a fantastic, healthy brownie alternative. It yields 2 large loaves, each serving 12. 

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 15 oz pumpkin puree, one standard can
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 3 1/3 cups plain flour
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups sugar, granulated
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, about 12 oz.
  • 1 cup almond slices, toasted
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk the pumpkin, eggs, oil, and water together. 
  3. Moisten the dry ingredients by slowly pouring the dry ingredient mix into the wet ingredients, stirring slowly. 
  4. Mix in the almonds and chocolate chips.
  5. Grease two nine inch by five inch loaf pans and pour equal amounts of bread mix into each pan. 
  6. Bake at 350°F for about 70 minutes. You can use the toothpick test to determine when it is ready. 
  7. After taking the breads from the oven, wait about ten minutes for the breads to cool before attempting to remove them from the pans. 
Wasn’t that easy?!

You can store the loaves by wrapping them in cling wrap and leaving them in the freezer for up to three months without losing moisture or flavor.

When you’re ready to enjoy them again, just leave them out to thaw on the counter for a few hours, remove the cellophane wrap, and maybe pop the slices in the microwave for a bit to get them nice and warm.

These usually don’t last long enough to see the freezer in my household though! Perhaps I should start and make two loaves at one time! I might just do that the next time I get the kids over to their Grandparents.
