One of my favorite things to make in the Fall are pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Ever since I was introduced to these amazing muffins during my days as a Claim Jumper server 15 years ago, I have been recreating the recipe.

Sometimes we get busy as moms and we just don’t have time to take the extra step to pour the batter into cupcake wrappers. That’s why today I thought we would turn it into bread. You have to cook the bread much longer than the muffins but it is so easy to whip up the batter, pour it in one pan and let the oven do the extra work.

NOTE: The nuts are optional in this bread. I leave them out because the kids don’t like them. The glaze is also optional and I don’t really think it is needed.
