Pumpkin Bread

Who doesn’t love a good pumpkin bread? It’s one of the fall favorites, and let’s be honest here, pumpkin and pumpkin spice everything are much welcomed flavors in my life year-round. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin soup. Well you get it.

I’m the first to say that I am not a chef and therefore can’t take credit for this recipe. I’m just a food lover and nutrinut that enjoys exploring and experimenting with different recipes. This one I found randomly one day while looking for YouTube videos of one of my favorite chefs on Instagram: Mikaela Reuben.

I typically don’t care much for Instagram, but I love everything about Mikaela’s style. When I see her recipes, pictures, and videos it just really speaks to me. Definitely check her out. Although I didn’t find too many Mikaela YouTube videos, I did see that her recipe tweaks were featured in a Karlie Kloss video. So this one I had to try.

This pumpkin bread received The Nutrinut seal of approval! I made a few tweaks to the recipe and all-in-all it was pretty simple to make and rich in wholesome and nourishing ingredients. Let’s not forget absolutely delicious!

Here is how I made my Pumpkin Bread.
