This easy Nutty Pumpkin Spice Bread is bursting with fall flavors of pumpkin, spices and pecans. Made healthier with whole wheat flour, low fat and sugar.
Anyone that has tried my son's favorite carrot bread recipe will recognize this basic recipe. All I did was swap out the carrot for pumpkin and change up the spices. I use whole wheat flour because it adds a nice nutty flavor and texture, but you can use all-purpose flour or half and half.
