Quick breads are often dainty affairs with subtle flavors. That is certainly not the case with this Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Quick Bread. No, this is a really hearty quick bread with no shortage of flavor. It’s made with oats to make the texture feel more significant and also jam-packed with lots of chocolate chips and nuts to make it super tasty.

If you can imagine a cross between a quick bread and an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, you’ll have a pretty good idea of what a joy this bread is. The combination of oats and chocolate chips doesn’t get the love it should. One bite of this bread will make you a believer!

This bread follows the usual muffin method, so you won’t encounter any surprises along the way. My only word of warning is to be doubly sure about the size of your loaf pan. Somewhere along the way, “standard” loaf pans became two different sizes. This bread will completely fill a 9″x 5″ loaf pan when it’s baked, so be extra sure that’s what size you’re using.

This Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Quick Bread is perfectly quick and easy to make. It’s just the thing to whip up on a lazy morning when you want a special treat or when you just want a homemade treat for snacking. It will keep for a few days in an airtight container, or wrap it tightly and refrigerate to extend that. It’s perfectly delicious at room temperature, but try warming a slice to make it even better!

sliced Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Quick Bread on parchment paper


  • 2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (99g) rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (60g) chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup (85g) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 & 1/2 cups (355ml) buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup (56g) butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9″x 5″ loaf pan* with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats, both sugars, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the pecans and chocolate chips.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the buttermilk, eggs, butter, and vanilla. Stir into the dry ingredients just until combined. Batter will be lumpy.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.


*Make sure your pan has the correct dimensions, as this is too much batter for an 8 & 1/2"x 4 & 1/2" loaf pan. If you're at all concerned about potential spills, place the loaf pan on a lined, rimmed baking sheet before baking.
