Our mom has been working hard this autumn to master her Pumpkin Bread recipe. One by one, our decor pumpkins have been donated to the Olson bakehouse (aka: my parent's house) so that mom could roast and make (yet again) another loaf!

The other day, she sliced up a piece for me, and with a big smile beaming across her face, she said: "I've nailed it!"

"I discovered the perfect recipe and I wrote it down for you!"

My heart melted into my seat when she handed me a handwritten index card with her recipe. In that moment, I knew this was the beginning of a new tradition. It will be the recipe I pull out to make with my daughter -- and generations after.

What really makes this pumpkin bread special is how moist it is! I am not kidding when I tell you it melts in your mouth.

Imagine this...
Fresh roasted pumpkin... with the perfect blend of spices... mixed with only the best, smooth and delicious coconut oil. YUM!

*To make fresh pumpkin purée. Wash whole pumpkin. Cut off stem. Cut pumpkin in half. Scoop out pumpkin seeds. Cut slices of pumpkin. Put slices in baking pan with about 1/2 inch of water. Cover pan with lid or aluminum foil. Bake about 45 min at 350 degrees until fork pierces pumpkin easily. Remove from oven, let cool. Scrape pumpkin from skin. Save pumpkin in 2 cups per freezer bag or use fresh in pumpkin bread or pie.
