6 Ingredient Pumpkin Bread

I know pumpkin tends to be a flavor typically attributed as being autumnal and/or of the Thanksgiving nature.  However, as someone who is passionate for pumpkin and eats it any chance I am able, I believe firmly that surely we can stretch the ingredient as being applicable and apt for baking well into the winter months as well.  Pumpkin is homey, comforting, healthy, and its great in both baked goods and savory dishes alike.

With the colder months making it far easier towards packing on a few extra pounds, I thought something desserty, comforting, but healthy and low in calories would be the perfect thing.  This pumpkin bread is gluten free, dairy free and without refined sugar.
