Olive oil not only adds an incredible depth of flavor, but used in place of butter or shortening, it makes quick breads better for you by supplying healthy fat and antioxidants. Pumpkin seeds are an optional topping here, but they add a nice crunch.

I make this loaf regularly and my kids gobble it up. I add a teaspoon or two of ginger in place of nutmeg.
Very quick and easy to to put together with amazing results. Moist and not overly sweet, the recipe is a keeper.
Best pumpkin bread ever. I also added 3/4 cup of currants and it added another layer of flavor. So very moist and easy to make. Great with a thin layer of flavor Philadelphia whipped cream cheese!
