Pumpkin Oatmeal Bread with Walnuts and Cranberries

I can’t believe that November is already here. It seems that just couple of weeks ago it was summer (well, at least here in San Diego) and now the weather cooled down and the days are shorter and shorter. It also means that the holiday season is approaching faster than I expected. My sister-in-law will be flying over from Arizona for Thanksgiving, so I need to start thinking about the Thanksgiving feast and the fun and yummy recipes I will be making. Well, I still have time!

Now it’s time for a pumpkin bread, after all it’s a holiday season! This is a great recipe for a baked fall treat! It’s light enough for breakfast, but also perfect as a afternoon snack or dessert. And the best part your house will smell like a pumpkin pie wonderland. Enjoy with a glass of cold milk or coffee or tea!
