Looking for Pumpkin Muffin Recipes? The beauty of this recipe is that it can be made into loaves or muffins. Just cut down on the baking time. Sometimes I will split the batter into loaves and muffins so I have some of both.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans and 2 mini loaf pans (or 3 large or 6 minis).
In a large bowl, mix together the pumpkin, oil, sugar, and eggs.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the flour mixture.
Gradually add remaining dry mixture to pumpkin mixture until well combined.
To keep the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the loaves when baking, toss the chocolate chips in the reserved flour mixture before gently stirring into the batter.
Divide the batter evenly between the 3 prepared pans. Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes. The top of the loaves should spring back when lightly pressed.
