    These look great. I often make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread. It’s one of the basic recipes out there and I put in chocolate chips, rather than nuts and raisins. Thanks, for posting the Rosh Hashanah wishes (I celebrate the holiday). Which leads me to a question…have you ever made Honey Cake? I made some…it’s a big batch so I have one for now and will bring the other to my neighbors’ for Yom Kippur. If you’ve never made it, it would be fun to read a write up on it. I made the version by Marci Goldman.

    Hi Tessa,

    Is there a replacement for the coconut oil? I’m not sure how readily available coconut oil is in Canada.

      It’s available in most supermarkets or health food stores here in the U.S. but if you can’t find it you can use vegetable oil.

    Just made a delicious variation on this recipe. I didn’t have choc chips, so instead I added 1/2 cup of chopped macadamia nuts and thought to myself, why not add some unsweetened cocoa powder as well?! (About 2 tablespoons I think.) Yummo! Your website is simply lovely. I drool over every single recipe, even the ones I don’t intend on making. And now that I’ve ‘Liked’ your website on Facebook I get all your new recipes delivered straight to my news feed page. Regards, one happy little cook from Australia 🙂

    Hi I always make these and they come out fantastic! My son is allergic to wheat, nut, dairy, egg, and gluten and so are his classmates. I want to make this for open house. I was wondering do you think this would work out using rice drink instead of dairy milk?

    Also do u think replacing the eggs with a banana will work out as well?

      I think rice drink would work fine (though I’ve never baked with it so I’m not 100% sure). You could definitely try using banana as an egg replacement, again I’ve never done that in this recipe so I can’t be certain how they would turn out.

    I’ve made these twice before and they were amazing each time! I want to bring them to a dinner party and am wondering if it would work to double the recipe and bake in a 9×13 pan?
