Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

I love this time of year for lots of reasons, but one of the big ones is that it's the season for baking pumpkin goodies! Basic pumpkin spice bread is great, but when you add chocolate in the mix... it's perfect

Recipe adapted from here.

1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 2/3 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup + 1/4 cup chocolate chips, divided

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin, eggs, oil, vanilla, and sour cream until smooth.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until smooth.
4. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
5. Grease & flour a loaf pan (or line it with parchment paper). Pour the batter into the pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.
6. Bake at 350 for 60-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the top is lightly browned.
7. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes or so, then remove loaf and let it cool completely on the wire rack.
