I know your asking yourself, she is making another pumpkin recipe?? What can I say I am truly obsessed. Even as I am typing this post up I am enjoying a pumpkin ale. I saw this recipe earlier today and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make it to our taste. It just came out of the oven and tastes great with some melted butter. I truly wish Fall would last longer so I can enjoy all of these pumpkin treats longer, but living in Chicago means winter is right around the corner. Anyways try this bread out and don't worry about the calories and such, it is pretty healthy for you!

Slowly combine the wet ingredients with the dry stirring gently. Add the apple and fold in.
Pour into a well greased loaf pan. Top it off with pepitas and seeds.
Bake for about an hour or until a skewer inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Let it sit for few minutes and then turn it out into a wire rack to cool.
