During the week, I’m really bad about eating a real breakfast. Whether I workout in the mornings or not, I don’t eat an actual meal until lunch time, which usually isn’t until 2pm for me.
Part of the reason is because I’m not hungry until a few hours after I wake up. But if I’m being honest, the other part is that I’m just too lazy to make or prepare an actual breakfast before I leave for work. So I almost always have some kind of homemade baked good on hand to eat while I’m walking out the door, literally.
And that’s where this bread comes in. I’ve been eating it pretty much non stop for the last few weeks. It’s that good. It’s basically the perfect blend of autumnal flavors married to the most dense and delicious banana bread.
It’s made with simple ingredients that I always have on hand, with a few special additions: yogurt, canned sweet potato, all purpose flour, eggs, maple syrup, bananas and the limited edition Pumpkin Spice Lifeway Kefir.
Lifeway Kefir is a tart and tangy cultured milk smoothie that is full of probiotics, and high in protein, calcium and vitamin D. You can use it in a variety of ways and it’s available in several different flavors. Learn more here!

I love topping this bread with a combination of the pumpkin spice kefir, Trader Joe’s mixed nut butter, and raw cashew butter!
