I am a BIG fan of pumpkin (as I am sure you know), pistachios and cranberries… but I am an even bigger fan of pumpkin bread and this pumpkin bread is AMAZING!! It is loaded with tons of yum and each bite is like a party in your mouth.
PISTACHIOS & CRANBERRIES GALORE!
I am all about a traditional pumpkin bread but this loaded pumpkin bread is just so, so good.
I have always loved cranberries with pumpkin but for some extra fun I wanted to add in some pistachios. Pistachios are a favorite for me with cranberries, as in these cookies. The cookies are SO GOOD I knew the pumpkin bread would be amazing!
The combo of the crunchy pistachios with the tender cranberries really do come together to make a perfect bite. If pistachios are not your thing you can use pecans, or pumpkin seeds. Not a fan a cranberries… thats ok, leave them out or use dried cherries.
PERFECT FOR GIFT BASKETS
I did Boo Bags for a few family and friends and in each bag was a small loaf of this pumpkin bread. I used these disposable loaf pans and they were just perfect. In the recipe below are the instructions to make these little loafs just perfect.
You can also make big loafs for baskets as well, if you want to be extra special nice. I mean maybe I will be that extra nice come November but I really do love this bread… but I will try and share with those I love.
LOAD IT UP
I not only put the pistachios and cranberries in the bread but I also put the yummies on top before baking. I love how the nuts get extra crunchy and the cranberries get a little toasty making them extra tasty.
If you are using pecans I would recommend toasting them a bit for a little bit of extra pecan goodness.
