Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe

Pumpkin flavored items in the fall are the best!

I went into Trader Joe’s the other day and many items were pumpkin flavored. I couldn’t help myself but to gather a few ingredients for a delicious pumpkin spice bread.

Most pre-made or packaged pumpkin treats are loaded with sugar …and I mean loaded.

It’s frustrating that in order to even enjoy these sort of seasonal flavors, they contain a lot of processed ingredients.  We might know that refined sugar isn’t the best. But if you’re trying to balance your hormones, it’s extra important that you watch refined sugar intake.

Processed sugar can create negative swings in blood sugar and insulin levels. Key pieces to hormone regulation!

Ever experience sugar cravings? Maybe you’re tired, stressed or experiencing some sort of hormone imbalance. All you want is a cookie or seasonal dish. 

Now, I’ve got the perfect autumn treat!

This pumpkin spice bread is the perfect alternative for you! 

My favorite way to enjoy is a with a big cup of tea and some solitude. Happy Fall!
