If fall means everything pumpkin for you too, then this ah-mazing Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread is right up your alley! And you'll most likely want to make this delicious chocolate pumpkin bread all year long!
Spray two 9" loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
In another bowl, using a hand mixer, mix together eggs, oil, pumpkin and lemon zest. Add sugar and dry pudding and mix until fully combined.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, a little at a time until fully combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pans.
Take 1 cup of the chocolate chips and drizzle half of it over one pan then gently fold the chips in with a fork, making sure the chips don't drop at the bottom of the pan. Repeat for the second pan. Take the rest of the chocolate chips and drizzle over both pans without folding.
Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes then reduce heat to 350 F and bake for an additional 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out with just a few moist crumbs.
Let cool completely before removing from loaf pans.
