Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan, heat pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice over medium heat. Stir often for about 5-7 minutes
Remove from heat and stir in cream cheese. Whisk for several minutes until all of the cream cheese is mixed in. If the cream cheese is still not mixed in, place it back on the heat for 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar, sugar, and oil. Let it sit for 5 minutes to cool before adding the eggs.
Whisk in eggs and buttermilk until fully mixed together. After it is completely smooth, fold in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until combined.
Make sure mixture is cool before adding in the chocolate chips. Reserve some chocolate chips to sprinkle on the top. Grease two 8 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray or butter. Pour batter into pans.
Bake for 44-48 minutes or until the center is cooked through. If it is getting to brown, cover with foil halfway through baking time to ensure the center is fully baked through. Check by placing a toothpick in the center to make sure it comes out clean.
Let pumpkin loaves cool for 20 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack. Let cool.
