This is a great recipe! I love peanut butter and I also love pumpkin, so this was a wonderful combination for me. I like using chunky peanut butter for extra texture/crunch.

I've been making this wonderful bread for over 30 years. The original recipe was in our newspaper. The only difference is folding in peanut butter chips instead of peanut butter. The pumpkin & peanut butter combo is a winner! I often make the small loaves for holiday gifts.

What a delicious and simple recipe! I admit I was dubious about the combination of pumpkin and peanut butter, but it turns out they combine beautifully to create a unique flavor that was gobbled up in two days at my house! I froze the second loaf and had a quick treat to thaw and serve when I had surprise guests later in the month. That loaf was gone in an hour! Thanks for sharing!

Delicious! I made these several times last fall. The extra loaf freezes well. Today I made these and used a little Nutella in place of some of the PB.....my kids loved it!

I wondered how peanut butter would taste with pumpkin, so I gave this bread a try. It is absolutely delicious. The combination is a winner. The recipe makes 2 loaves, so I gave one to my sister and her family. She took it to work to eat for breakfast. I asked her 2 days later if she had tried the bread and she said it was already gone. I am going to make it again this week. Super easy recipe.
