I can’t pretend to be immune to the explosion of pumpkin everywhere I turn. Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin pie, and pumpkin bread. So how about some pumpkin pie bread?

Although the recipe preparation is quite easy, there are quite a few ingredients in this recipe, and the baking time is a bit long.
This recipe is like a protein bar is breakfast bread form. One serving has only 15 grams of protein, 8 grams of fat, and only 5 grams of carbohydrates.
The texture is mostly bread like but it has quite a bit of moisture, so it reminds me of pumpkin eye. It is a bit crumbly if you try to cut it in half (which I do to spread on nut butter)
Makes 8 servings. Keeps in fridge for 5 days, freezes and thawed great. (I am still working on a batch from 2 weeks ago and they still taste freshly baked after being thawed.
