pumpkin oatmeal bread


It's fall now, guys! Or at least that's what the calendar is telling me. 
The weather, however, is begging for pool parties and watermelon. 
I'm totally confused. 

But as soon as the calendar flipped to September, I got really excited. 

I haven't had an American autumn in three years! 
And that is my excuse for eating all the pumpkin things. 
Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin oatmeal. 
Seriously, gimme it all. 



I'm loving the colors of the leaves when I go for my runs in the morning, the bonfires with friends on the weekends. 
And the fall food. 
I've been dreaming (not even kidding.) of classic fall foods… 
Pumpkin bread, pumpkin soup, and apple crisp (getting on that one soon!) 

I honestly can't get over how easy it is to just grab a can of pumpkin puree at the store. 
Way back in the nether years, we had to buy a pumpkin, cube said pumpkin, boil it, and puree it. 
It ended up being quite the process and it never tasted even close to the real deal.

The things we take for granted. 


Anyways, my first fall recipe! 

This pumpkin bread is simple and delicious. 
It's dense and hearty, definitely not a light or fluffy loaf. 
It's lightly sweetened with maple syrup, making it perfect for a healthy snack or breakfast. 
Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon bring a little spice to the party. 
Whole wheat flour and oatmeal make it healthy enough to eat for breakfast. 
Pumpkin bread + coffee = perf. 

ALSO. Smear some peanut butter on there. 
It won't be the worst thing you've ever tasted.
