Pumpkin Bread with Pecan Crumble Topping

Pumpkin Bread with Pecan Crumble

Another pumpkin bread recipe? YES!!

My husband and son kept asking when I would be making it, so I figured that it was the right time of year to dig in. This Pumpkin Bread with Pecan Crumble Topping is moist and light and point of fact, crumble topping greatly improves any cake or muffin – period.

I took a basic pumpkin bread recipe, replaced the butter with coconut oil because I love the subtle coconut flavor that it lends to baked goods, then reduced the sweetener (brown sugar) to half a cup and came up with a pecan and brown sugar crumble topping to add additional texture and sweetness.

The final result was a success. I admit that I had a difficult time not snacking on it while I was taking the photos.
