Can this recipe be used as a pumpkin bread?
Yes just use a loaf pan instead of the muffin pan and you will have to bake it longer.

So..... Where are the walnuts?
This recipe does not call for walnuts but if you would like to add them just replace the chocolate chips with walnuts or a portion of the chocolate chips with walnuts.
