I know I’m not the only one that becomes absolutely pumpkin obsessed around the holidays.
Am I right?
There is just something about the season that makes me want to consume pumpkin in every single form.
This pumpkin spiced oat bread recipe -- just like all the recipes I share -- is free of white flour, refined white sugar and vegetable oils. It's a clean version that’s JUST as tasty as its guilt-ridden counterpart.
And what's quite possibly the best part of this bread?
It's the smell of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger as it bakes to golden perfection.
My husband, Dan, wanted to encapsulate the aroma inside of a candle, but there is no candle that can touch the scent of warm spiced bread baking in the oven. No, not even you Mr. Yankee Candle.
Not only does pumpkin taste absolutely amazing, but it’s actually very nutritious, too! It is low in calories, it packs many anti-oxidant vitamins like A, C and E. It is also rich in B carotenes, cryptoxanthin and lutein along with minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus.
A nutritional powerhouse AND it tastes great?! Sign me up!
There is plenty of that glorious pumpkin packed inside this pumpkin spiced oat bread.
So, eat up and don’t you feel guilty about it either.
