Pumpkin Bread Bites

A few weeks ago, I made a batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from a cookbook I have.
I was less than impressed. (I still ate about half of them.. you know.. just to be sure)

So I screwed around with the recipe.. a lot. So much so that you wouldn’t recognize it so I’m going to go ahead and call it my own. It’s what I once heard  Paul McCartney say he  used to do with songwriting.. and if it’s good enough for Sir Paul, it’s good enough for me.

These Pumpkin Bread Bites are not too sweet and will remind you of pumpkin bread. For when you just want a bite and not a whole slice. They also freeze well, so go ahead and make a batch and pop them in the freezer.
