This insanely good, wonderfully moist and gooey dessert bread is definitely a crowd pleaser! As an added bonus this is a ONE BOWL recipe and is also GLUTEN FREE! This was my first attempt at making bread that was not the usual banana bread or chocolate almond bread, and it turned out to be one of my favorites (and not only because there were far fewer dishes to do at the end)! This bread keeps SO WELL, just covered on the counter, staying perfectly moist and delicious, not drying out or becoming somewhat hard like other baked goods. The pumpkin in combination with the nutmeg and cinnamon make the bread resemble a carrot-cake in a way, yet also has a rich chocolaty flavor from the added chocolate chips. Give it a try and I know you will LOVE IT!!
