Welcome Fall with a loaf of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread fresh from the oven! This copycat Starbucks bread recipe is filled with real pumpkin, autumn spices and a sprinkle of chocolate chips and pecans for a sweet finish.


  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 heaping cup canned pumpkin, not pie filling
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup chopped pecans + extra to top the bread
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips + extra to top the bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9x5 loaf pan with non-stick baking spray. For easy removal, you can line the pan with parchment paper and then spray the pan and paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, using a hand or stand mixer, mix the pumpkin, sugar, oil, and eggs. Pour half of the dry mixture into the pumpkin mixture and mix until combined. Add in the rest of the dry mixture and mix again until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans with a spatula.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, top the batter with a few extra chocolate chips and pecans and bake for 60 minutes. At 50 minutes, check on the bread if it’s starting to brown too much you can put a foil tent over the top for the remaining 10 minutes. Check with a toothpick for doneness.
  5. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack.
  6. Serve warm or cooled. Store covered at room temperature.


  • FREEZE: To freeze, slide cooled bread into airtight container or freezer safe ziploc bag. Thaw overnight at room temperature.
