It’s that time of year for all things pumpkin. I think I’ve mentioned it before, but I was never a pumpkin person. I didn’t learn about it’s amazing-ness and basic-ness until grad school. I’m glad I had friends that fed me homemade pumpkin pie, pumpkin rolls, and introduced to Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes.

This recipe actually happened by chance. Last week, I made pumpkin no bake energy bites. I had a bunch of pumpkin leftover and didn’t want it to go to waste. I was going to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but decided to do a bread. As I was looking at recipes, I thought, “what would happen if I made this out of a protein pancake mix?” So I did, and it was awesome. I posted it on my Instagram story (which you should follow and get daily tips and ridiculousness) and had people banging down my DM asking for the recipe. And that was history, a pumpkin chocolate chip bread recipe was born.

    This looks so yummy. It’s amazing how well pumpkin and chocolate go together – a combination I never would have thought of until I tried it!
