Nutty Pumpkin Bread Recipe

One of the best things about fall is all the yummy pumpkin spice recipes. I shared my favorite pumpkin spice mix with you a few days ago and today would like to share a recipe that uses it.

This makes a fantastic loaf of pumpkin bread. I love the added flavor and texture from the nuts. You can use whatever nuts you like in the recipe. I love it with both walnuts and slivered almonds. Yum.

This bread makes for a yummy breakfast treat. Perfect for a weekend morning before you head down to the pumpkin patch or go apple picking.

It’s also a great gift to send to your child’s teacher or take as a hostess gift. Perfect for fall bake sales too of course.
