Pumpkin Spice Bread with Pepitas

Nothing screams “Fall” quite like Pumpkin Spice. I’m addicted to anything pumpkin, from pumpkin spice lattes to donuts and pumpkin pie. So, I figured why not make my own pumpkin spice bread? I love putting a healthy spin on old fashioned recipes.

I took a classic pumpkin spice bread recipe and eliminated the white sugar, butter and refined flour. This Pumpkin Spice Bread with Pepitas is slightly sweet. Made with wholesome ingredients like white whole wheat flour, coconut oil and organic honey it’s something you can feel good about indulging in on a cool Fall morning.
