Pumpkin Date Bread is 100% Date sweetened, nutrient rich, super moist and full of fall flavor.
Join me in celebrating my first Pumpkin Bread of the season!
This Pumpkin Date Bread is the best quick bread I have ever made.
First of all, it is free of refined sugar! Just like my Date sweetened Banana Bread with Candied Bacon, this bread gets it’s sweetness purely from big beautiful Medjool Dates. The Dates add a decadent caramel flavor and make it super moist!
In addition, each slice contains 5 grams of fiber, vitamin A, potassium, protein and iron. Not to mention the blissful pumpkin spice essence of fall in every bite. So enjoy a slice for breakfast with your coffee for a cozy fall morning. Or wrap slices for on-the-go snacks.
It’s a lot healthier than that Starbucks Pumpkin loaf!

Since I stayed at a bed and breakfast I just had whatever they had to offer. If I can recall it was a classic english breakfast that they were serving. After breakfast and coffee we started to walk around and look at all the scenic views and different shops.
The first stop was a little art gallery with lots of neat an interesting paintings. I really liked the ocean wave painting and how it was broken up into three parts.
I’m not exactly sure where we stopped for lunch because I was just having way too much fun but what I do remember how I really liked the set up of all the shops and buildings.
After walking around all day and seeing the sights me and my grandparents were getting a little tired so we decided to return to our hotel room and relax.
For dinner, since in the hotel room we had a kitchen of our own, me and my grandma cooked up some eggs and toast for a simple and easy dinner. I wish I had some of my pumpkin bread to finish off my day for dessert but sadly I had to go without it:(
I mean look at this stuff, amazing. Perfect dessert, breakfast or snack.
Finally after my dinner we all watched tv and went to bed when we got tired.
Have you ever stayed at a bed and breakfast before?
Whats your favorite kind of quick bread?
