Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Bread is the perfect gift or treat this holiday season. A quick bread with tons of cinnamon flavor, chocolate chips and topped with a chocolate glaze.

Today I am sharing a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Bread over at Your Homebased Mom.  All November long Leigh Ann has been a co-host of Bake Craft Sew. Your Homebased Mom is the site for all kinds of edible gifts,  Mique from  Thirty Handmade Days, is about all things crafting, and Cindy of Skip to My Lou is doing a whole month of sewing ideas. I am only good at the edible gifts, so I am excited to check out some of the craft and sewing ideas.  I am not a very good crafter, but sometimes I am inspired to try!  And the holidays is as good of time as any.

Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Bread - Perfect treat this season!

I am excited that I can be a part of this event.  My Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Bread is a great gift this time of year.  I love making homemade treats for teachers, friends and neighbors.  This bread is great, you can make mini loaves or a full sized loaf to give to friends.  It would also make a great hostess gift if you are going to a party!

There is just something about a quick bread that I love.  This Sour Cream Banana Bread is perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack!


Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Bread is amazing warm.  All the melty chocolate chips in there!  The chocolate glaze is kind of optional, but when in my life is chocolate glaze optional?  I love to make up a couple of these loafs, and wrap one to put in the freezer.  It is perfect to bring out when guests arrive, or have with coffee or tea.  Plus all that cinnamon flavor just screams for colder weather!

  1. I made these as muffins and found them to be on the drier side. I was very careful not to over bake them. However the flavor is very good. I used 2 tsp of cinnamon since I was afraid 1 Tbs would have been too much. I added toasted pecans to half of the batter because everything is better with nuts.

  2. I made this yesterday, and it’s fantastic!!! Just wondering what went wrong tho.. Ivpit it on for 45 min and it didn’t test done, so put it in for another 5 min and it tested done.. then when it cooled the middle fell down, don’t know what happened, but we ate it anyway,well,definitely make it again, hope the middle doesn’t fall this time…

    1. Where do you live? There is a chance elevation has something to do with it, or humidity. As you get into it, is the center completely done? The center may be slightly under done and that is the problem.
