Bring on all things pumpkin! To start the Fall season off, I’m bringing you a Healthy Pumpkin Flaxseed Bread recipe! You can feel good about enjoying a piece every day because this bread has ingredients like whole wheat flour, cranberries and flaxseed in it!
Pumpkin is such a wonderful ingredient and it’s so popular to bake with during the cooler months. Making pumpkin bread is a great way to use a can of pumpkin. I love my original pumpkin bread recipe – this is more of a dessert than a snack, but it’s so good! This recipe however is made with healthier ingredients allowing you to indulge a little more. It’s the perfect mid afternoon snack or breakfast treat in the morning.
I love the addition of the tart cranberries – they offer a beautiful color but also a tart sweetness to every bite. The whole wheat flour offers whole grains and the addition of flaxseed offers fiber and omega-3s along with other great health benefits!
Pumpkin seeds on the top with a good sprinkle of sugar give this bread a crunchy, sweet and salty topping that you will just love. I found myself saving the top for last because it was so good!
This pumpkin bread baked up beautifully – had that perfect mounded top with the rustic crack in the center. The whole house smelled amazing. My two little girls loved it as well! They ate it up and thought of it as a treat!
Let the Fall baking begin!
