Pumpkin Bread with Crumble Topping

This is about that time of year I love hanging out in the kitchen... whipping up some of my favorite festive recipes and filling the house with the scents of the season.

Oh my YUM! 

If you love pumpkin bread, then you're going to love this decadent Pumpkin Bread with Crumble Topping!

A step up from the traditional fav, the crumble topping screams “decadent treat” while the simplicity of its  ingredients actually saves you from the usual added sugars, salt and fat of seasonal baked breads.

It really is the perfect bread for sharing this holiday season!

Pumpkin Bread with Crumble Topping


Pumpkin Bread with Crumble Topping
  • 1 & 1/2 C whole wheat flour (or gluten free sub)

  • 1 Tbsp. baking soda

  • 1 tsp. baking powder
