Chocolate Chip Sweet Potato Bread

Fall always bring about several pumpkin recipes. If you are like me, your house is filled with the aroma of pumpkin spice and several baked goods in the oven. You may even have a cup of warm cider or hot cocoa on the counter keeping you company. ūüėČ

There are several pumkin bread recipes floating around blogs and the internet right now. What intrigued me most about this recipe, was the adaptability to use sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin… AND since we just received some locally grown¬†BEAUTIFUL PURPLE sweet potatoes, I thought it would be a lot of fun to make a purple chocolate chip bread. ūüôā
