Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Spiced Pumpkin Bread Ingredients : As always, I try to incorporate as much veggies as I can into my family’s diet.  I decided to add shredded carrots, which add a touch of texture and sweetness, plus additional health benefits. Optional : add ground flax-seed, high in antioxidant and omega-3 fatty acid.

Banana bread and zucchini bread are more common but I like a quick and easy  pumpkin loaf just as much.  For my kids I sometimes place some applesauce atop the pumpkin bread and wash it down with a tall glass of milk.  I myself think it goes great with tea, likely because of the spices in both. Hope you’d like this easy pumpkin bread recipe! Enjoy!

    I’m going to admit a secret. I am a freak of nature. I don’t like pumpkin! Unless it’s overloaded with cinnamon lol. I don’t know why. But, this does look really good!
