Healthier Pumpkin Bread

It may not look or feel like Fall yet… (My hair was crazy after this run!  It is WAY too humid!)IMG_3836.jpeg

but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend!  After a hot run PIYO and air conditioning sound perfect!  IMG_1587.jpeg

Plus, there is nothing better than pumpkin flavored foods to get in the mood for Fall.  So my littlest guy helped me with these!  IMG_3180.JPG

I have been making mini muffins for the kids and bread for Nate and I!  Same recipe.. I just take the muffins out of the oven 10-15 minutes sooner.  IMG_3154.JPG
