Pumpkin blueberry bread


Years ago……and in another life….i had previously blogged this perfect Autumn recipe.

This morning we woke up and with the kids being on break from school all of this next week…..

they call it Fall Break around here…..

even though there isn’t a golden colored tree on the island….

this is still is one of our family favorites.

We had a long day yesterday on the south side of the island hanging out at the Hyatt hotel.

{aka: mini water park for the kids}

I aptly named yesterday a “Daycation”

a few well needed cocktails were had


Anyhoo……back to the bread.

This morning we woke up to rain and an overcast day so it just meant that i was going to make a few loaves

of pumpkin blueberry bread.


My kids love blueberries….but not necessarily in the pumpkin bread where on the other hand

the mister and i can mow through an entire loaf with blueberries faster than you can say

cloudy with a chance of sun.


The secret to the pumpkin bread is not the blueberries….

{which are optional of course}

but due to the fact that i use coconut oil instead of vegetable oil or canola oil.

Of course if you don’t have coconut oil……you can substitute in what you have in your cupboard…..

but i if you’ve never used coconut oil before then i will warn you that it’s the best oil out there.

It is pricey.

Our costco carries it now……happy dance….but i highly suggest switching your oils if you can.

{healthier too…..so you can pat yourself on the back.



 p.s. No loaf pans??? Muffins work too. My kids love the mini ones. You can make one loaf and 2 dozen muffins.
