This is my favorite pumpkin bread. There is obviously no shortage of pumpkin bread recipes here, as I had to look through a lot of pages to check for a duplicate before posting, but I love the addition of oats in this one. I clipped the recipe from a magazine several years ago and don't have the source, but think it may have been from Libby's.

I made this last year, and forgot to rate... but it is the best pumpkin bread I've ever had! It is moist and has an excellent flavor to it. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice on hand, so just added my own mix of cinnamon, nutmeg etc. Everyone that has had this bread has just raved about it. Thank you for a great recipe!

I have been searching for years for the right pumpkin bread recipe, and I think this is it. It was neither dry nor greasy, with lots of pumpkin flavor. The oats and brown sugar gave it special nuances of texture and flavor. I used half whole wheat flour, and for the spices I mixed ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Great recipe; thank you.

This is my 2nd time making this bread and it turned out amazing both times! I can't thank you enough. The only things I did differently was to sprinkle some dry oats on the top and I added a bit of mixed essence [West Indian combination of different extracts: almond, vanilla, pear, etc]. Apart from those two minor deviations, I followed the recipe exactly and got amazing results. My boyfriend lovess it and it certainly scored me some cool points with his family! YAY! lol THANKS A BUNCH!
