Clearly we’re a little pumpkin obsessed round these parts. But why shouldn’t we be? Pumpkin is so delicious and so healthy. Chock full of vitamin A. It’s most definitely obsession worthy!
Speaking of obsession, this pumpkin bread…oh, this bread. It’s moist. It’s rich. It’s scrumptious! Honey, nuts, pumpkin – perfection! I actually didn’t mix the nuts into the batter because one of my kiddos hates nuts. Instead, I sprinkled them on top so they were easily picked off. The nuts on TOP of the bread were amazing. They got all toasty in the oven and added a nice crisp juxtaposition to the moistness of the bread.
Did I really just write ‘juxtaposition’? All this pumpkiny goodness is going to my head.

Make yourself a loaf of this yummy pumpkin bread – or maybe two. Store in an airtight container. If it lasts that long…
