2 ½cupsall-purpose flour
1cupcanned pumpkin purée
1/2cuppacked light brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt. In a large, separate mixing bowl, combine eggs, pumpkin, sugar, oil, and honey. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture. Stir just until dry ingredients are moist.
Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. Pour batter into loaf pan. Lightly tap pan on the counter to eliminate any air bubbles. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds/pepitas if desired. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool bread in the pan for 15 minutes before removing to a rack to finish cooling.
