Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Hi Friends!! How is it Thanksgiving already??  I know we all say this every year but this year has raced by so fast. Just so much going on that we get lost in time and the hustle. But I am glad the holiday season is here and we can slow down a bit to enjoy quality time with family. As you travel this weekend or prepare to host your loved ones, this whole wheat pumpkin chocolate chip bread will be great to have on hand. It’s hearty, lightened with yogurt and has melty dark chocolate chips for a bit of indulgence.

I’ve made this bread a few times already and each time I do it is amazing. It uses low-fat yogurt to lighten the recipes and oil as well. The recipe below uses vegetable oil but you can use coconut oil instead. I loved the hints of coconut too but I know its not for everyone. The glaze on top is also optional but I think it adds an extra layer of delight especially if you make it spiced. A cup of coffee and a slice of this on any cold holiday day will be perfect.
