Chocolate Chip Walnut Pumpkin Bites

Emma was feeling Fall festive yesterday, so we ventured to the kitchen to our hand at pumpkin bread inspired by Melanie Makes – One of our favorite food bloggers! We encountered a problem when the pumpkin bread started to split down the middle and fall apart. Emma decided to improvise by grabbing a fork and smashing the bread to make Chocolate Chip Walnut Pumpkin Bites instead! Delicious to taste and her little sisters couldn’t get enough!
