Sounds kinda familiar, right? That’s because it’s based off of one of my most popular recipes, my one bowl banana bread. One bowl. Easy. Delicious. Need I say more? This pumpkin bread is out of this world moist (sorry if you hate that word!).  Plus, it’s only got ONE BOWL. Meaning, less dishes, which I’m ALL about.

Take a second and pin this recipe to your Pinterest board. You do not want to lose it, and, sharing is caring, right? Your friends will thanks you. Okay, and maybe be a little jealous when you post your delicious creating in you Instagram stories.

I left this bread pretty simple. However, feel free to add in any sort of mix-ins your heart desires. Here are a few ideas:

  • Chocolate chips (I love the mini ones)
  • A swirl of nut butter
  • Walnuts
  • Chopped dates
  • White chocolate chips
  • Pumpkin seeds

I would HIGHLY recommend making a double batch and stashing one in the freezer. I think you’ll be a tad bit sad at how quickly this gets eaten. Having a backup in the freezer is fabulous to have on hand for pumpkin bread french toast or pumpkin bread ice cream sandwiches. Seriously amazing.

If you need some more pumpkin in your life (because, don’t we all?) You might want to give my five minute pumpkin pie oatmeal a try to this crockpot pumpkin turkey chili a go! The more pumpkin things you eat this time of year the merrier, right?
