Coconut Flour Sweet Potato Chocolate Bread

Slice into a freshly baked loaf of sweet potato bread, dripping with chocolate.

The natural sweetness of sweet potatoes shines in this easy quick bread. In just a few simple steps, you can have a bread bursting with chocolate morsels inside and out.

You’ll mix chocolate chips into the batter and top the bread with them for major chocolate flavor. Meanwhile, a pumpkin-spiced sweet potato batter lends moisture, natural sweetness, and a rich flavor that marries beautifully with chocolate.

Timing is key here. Give the bread 10 minutes to slightly cool in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack and sprinkle with chocolate chips immediately. The bread will still be warm, which will cause the chocolate chips to melt into a velvety chocolate topping.
