This Muesli Pumpkin Bread is an easy quick bread that is packed with delicious muesli! Thank you Nature Valley™ Toasted Oats Muesli for partnering with me on this amazing bread!The Muesli Pumpkin Bread are cut into slices and the top of the bread is sprinkled with different types of seeds and nuts.

We have a blood sugar problem in my house. And the biggest outcome of it?

HANGER.

Like my kids are typically well behaved (as am I . . . ). But oh man! When hanger strikes (anger + hunger = HANGER) it’s like the world is going to come to an end. We They become raging beasts.

The other morning my well intentioned, but just occasionally moronic husband made the ill informed decision of giving Quinn sugary cereal for breakfast . . . and nothing else. Like cereal that should really be housed in the ice cream aisle of the grocery store as a sundae topping, not hanging out there like it deserves to be part of the most important meal of the day.

The Muesli Pumpkin Bread are cut into slices and the top of the bread is sprinkled with different types of seeds and nuts.

The result?

We saw the rage of the hangry beast about an hour later.

I’m constantly on the lookout for good fulfilling breakfasts for my kids. And since they are kids who shy away from scrambled eggs, I sometimes need to get creative. So I was so excited to try Nature Valley Muesli.

I soaked it in buttermilk and used it to make this amazing and delicious Muesli Pumpkin Bread. It is full of the delicious flavors of the Toasted Oats Muesli, plus delicious spices and pumpkin! It’s so perfect for fall, and bound to keep my kiddos full for a while.

Nature Valley Muesli is a breakfast option that you can feel great about. It is also totally diverse. Put it on yogurt, eat it cold with milk, or make it warm like oatmeal.

    I love the early morning sugar rush from cereal. I gave up cereal way too late in life, once I realized that my morning dose of Frosted Flakes wasn’t filling me up and it was making me crash. But boy, did they taste good.
    This looks like the best use of muesli possible!

      Thanks Susan!

  5. Brenda Pink says

    Just a comment that you don’t say what to do with the extra 2 tbsp of muesli. Obviously, it’s sprinkled on top, but you may want to amend the recipe. Very good bread.
