Coconut Walnut Pumpkin Bread

Once Halloween is over and Fall is upon us, I begin to sort through all my Fall and Winter recipes getting ready for the cooler weather. It will cross my mind several times during this search, to find my favorite pumpkin recipes and set them aside. I’m one of those that cannot live without the pumpkin season. My favorite thing to do is find the nearest pumpkin patch after Halloween and gather all the leftover pumpkins for my holiday pies and breads.

This pumpkin bread was brought to me by my best friend Maria. She brought it to a gathering we had, and I have been making it every year since.  When fall rolls around this is the recipe I bring out and make for my family and friends over and over.  Since I teach about pumpkin in my cooking classes and talk about pumpkins continually, (and yes it can get boring to others) trust me this is no boring recipe!

It makes two loaves, one for today and one for later. It’s perfect in the sense it’s easy and quite different with the use of coconut. Whether you use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin, the amount stays the same.
