There are two types of people in this world: those who buy pumpkin bread from a store and say that they made it, and those who make pumpkin bread from scratch. Now, I am by no means a chef, but I will say that my family makes a mean pumpkin bread that serves both as a dessert and a snack.

The following is a great recipe to keep in mind as Thanksgiving appears right around the corner, as it can be used as a festive dinner or dessert option. Pumpkin also helps protect your skin and provides a lot of much-needed dietary fiber, according to The Huffington Post, and these same benefits can be found in all pumpkin products, including pumpkin bread.
