pumpkin streusel bread.

No words for this bread… I have adapted the streusel idea from Kylie’s blog: immaeatthat.  She made this blueberry muffin streusel bread that I SO wanted to make.. only I didn’t have any blueberries.  But, I did have a can of organic pumpkin!  So I made my own version of streusel bread!  The streusel is made of oats, butter, brown sugar, whole wheat flour, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin seeds – perfection.  The bread itself is not overly sweet, but the topping gives it just enough buttery, crunchy sweetness.  I used Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix to give this bread more protein!  One serving (1/2 cup) of Power Cakes mix has 14g of protein, which is why I love Kodiak Cakes so much!


for the bread:

RECIPE: (makes 2 small loaves or one large loaf)

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 & 1/2 cup Power Cakes Kodiak Cakes mix
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • in a large bowl, mix flour, Kodiak Cakes mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and baking soda
  • in a separate bowl, mix pumpkin, egg, melted butter, almond milk, and vanilla
  • mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in about 3 increments, mixing after each addition
  • pour into greased loaf pans (about 3/4 full)

for the streusel: 


  • 2 tablespoons old fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons whole what flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds


  • put everything in one bowl
  • mix with your hands until crumbly
  • top each loaf with the streusel, pressing down lightly so it bakes into the top of each loaf
  • bake loaves for about 25-30 minutes until browned at the top and knife comes out clean
