Pumpkin Bread with Oreo Streusel

You guys!!!! It’s the first day of fall!!! 🙂 So I of course had to bring you a pumpkin recipe. One of my favorite ways to eat pumpkin is pumpkin bread, duh. BUT, we took it up a notch. OREOS. You betcha. Freakin Oreos.


I’m a huge fan of swirled things. If it’s cinnamon rolls or breads, brownies or like, everything. Swirled just tastes better. But with a streusel? And not just any streusel, but Oreo streusel? am I dreaming? The Oreo’s really took this pumpkin bread to a whole different world. They add just enough sweetness without being overpowering, adding a good crumb texture and of course that touch of chocolate we all love. Not to mention, the chocolate crumble next to the orange pumpkin bread, it screams Halloween.

The Recipe

-what you need-

Oreo Streusel

  • 20 Oreos
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup flour

Pumpkin Bread

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée (not pie)
  • 1/4 cup light cream or milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbs oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

-what to do-

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter a loaf pan, lining with parchment paper. This helps to ensure your bread does not stick to the loaf pan.
  2. Make the crumble. In a large plastic baggie, place in your Oreos. Crush them with something that will not puncture the bag, like a rolling pin, until you get fine crumbs and some larger pieces.
  3. Dump Oreo crumbs into a bowl and add in your melted butter and flour and mix until crumble forms. Streusel should not be very wet, it should be somewhat dry but clumps together. Set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer with paddle attachment, or bowl with hand mixer, mix your wet ingredients – eggs, oil, sugars, vanilla and pumpkin puree.
  5. Next add in your dry, all at once – the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Mix halfway through then add in your cream. Mix until well combined.
  6. Pour half your batter into your loaf pan, top with half the Oreo streusel, pour over remaining batter and top with remainder of streusel.
  7. Bake for one hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool for one hour, slice and serve!! Happy Fall 🙂
