Oatmeal Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe

Spice Up Breakfast With This Oatmeal Pumpkin Bread

Bye-bye, bikinis, and hello, cuddly sweaters! Pumpkin bread has been a longtime favorite for Fall baking, and this recipe is made healthy by using the goodness of oats, which adds a nutritious punch of fiber and an interesting, chewy texture, making this pumpkin bread slightly denser and more filling than the usual loaf.

Use boxed pumpkin or a canned brand like Farmer's Market that has a BPA-free lining, or you can always bake up your own pumpkin and puree it yourself.

Toast a slice of this oatmeal pumpkin spice bread and spread on some organic nut butter for a satisfying breakfast. It's even sweet enough to enjoy as an after-dinner treat. Holy mother of pumpkin, this recipe is a keeper; everyone will be asking for it!
