Make your mornings sweeter with this yummy chocolate chip bread. Grab some coffee and a slice of this quick bread and start the day off well!
Simple to make and absolutely delicious, the smell of this baking will get the whole family out of bed!
The holidays are here! I am sharing one of my favorite holiday baking recipes with you today, a super easy Chocolate Chip Bread.
The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it can be breakfast, dessert, or whatever you need at any time of day!
It mixes up quickly (just 2 bowls!) and bakes up in under an hour. I make three mini loaves and then give them to friends and neighbors, or I make one big one and keep it for us! Bake times listed in the notes for different-sized pans.
This is a great recipe to make with kids since it’s super easy. Have one mix the dry ingredients, have another mix the wet ingredients, and then you combine.
Watch out for chocolate chip thieves, they are RAMPANT this time of year, I’ve heard.
It took me a while to decide how to name this since it didn’t have a name. It’s not REALLY bread, it’s more “loaf or cake”. It doesn’t matter what YOU want to call it – I think we can all just agree it’s delicious.
Stop by Safeway to grab Signature SELECT™ baking essentials, (plus Lucerne® eggs and butter) as well as some in-store made cookies to round out YOUR dessert selection during the holidays!
Why this recipe works
- Easy. Two bowls needed, that’s it!
- Adaptable. Make a large loaf, 3 small ones, or make muffins instead. Double the recipe and make a loaf for everyone you know!
- Delicious. I mean, it goes without saying, right?
I shopped at Safeway in my local area, but you can also find Signature SELECT™ baking items at any of the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Randalls, Shaw’s, Star Market, Tom Thumb and Vons.
Safeway has a large variety of Signature SELECT™ baking items available, from flour, sugar, vanilla, and chocolate chips, to Lucerne® eggs and butter. All of these make for great and easy holiday entertaining!
Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ for convenient ways to shop – this has been a lifesaver for me!

How to store
This treat will keep for up to 3 days if wrapped tightly and stored at room temperature.
It can also be frozen. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag. Freeze up to 3 months. To use, a quick blast in the microwave or return the baked loaf to the original pan used and reheat in the oven.
- You can use dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips for this, or full-sized vs mini-sized choc chips if you prefer.
- Add a tsp espresso powder to the dry ingredients
- Use almond extract in place of vanilla extract
- Use half brown sugar, half white sugar for a caramel flavor.
- Any milk is fine, I use whole milk of 2% but you can use almond milk, oat milk, soy milk etc.
