Today was one of the coldest days of the year thus far. I decided to turn on the oven to warm things up a bit. This pumpkin bread was so good, it was hard to stop at one piece. You will be pleased to know that I worked hard to get this down to 3 points per slice! I like to cut my bread into 16 pieces by first cutting into 8 thick slices and then cutting those slices in half. It gives the perception of being a more hearty helping! Enjoy!
