Dark Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Bread


2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups canned pumpkin
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup vanilla pudding
4 large egg whites
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup dark chocolate chunks


Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, pudding and egg whites in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Combine flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in chocolate chunks.

Spoon batter into 2 (8-by-4-inch) loaf pans coated with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans on a wire rack and remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack before slicing and enjoying.
