pumpkin bread, spelt flour, cacoa nibs

With Canadian Thanksgiving over and American Thanksgiving a little over a month away, we are feeling the strong craving to eat lots of pumpkin.  This pumpkin bread recipe is rich, but not too sweet.  The yogurt helps increase digestibility of the grains (and using sprouted spelt flour is even better for digestibility).
