The fall season is right around the corner, and that means many different foods and drinks are in season. You might be thinking about apple pie and pumpkin-spiced lattes, but there are actually plenty of types of breads perfect for autumn.

  1. Pumpkin bread

We bet you are not too surprised by this one. Of course, pumpkin bread is a staple of the fall season. Even people who aren’t the biggest fans of pumpkin-flavored foods and drinks find pumpkin bread is the happy exception. Extremely easy to make and delicious to eat, pumpkin bread is an unmissable fall experience.

  1. Zucchini bread

Since zucchini is in season during the summer months, try freezing some so it lasts until the fall. Despite the fact it’s technically a summer vegetable, zucchini works for fall because it can pass as a “harvest” veggie, along with squash. The zucchini bread is surprisingly sweet because the recipe calls for sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon, yet also hearty because of the addition of nuts. The contrast makes for a light but satisfying fall bread.

  1. Apple cider bread

For a fall bread with real apple chunks right in the loaf, this is the perfect choice. Most fruit in baking is completely mixed in, so apple cider bread is an unusual and refreshing alternative. It’s both innovative and traditional, so baking it will make you feel like you’re right in the middle of an October in the center of Germany. You won’t need an apple-scented fall candle after you’re done with this one.

  1. Chocolate banana breadchocolate banana bread

For a fun and interesting spinoff on traditional banana bread, add some chocolate! While this recipe chooses to mix the cocoa right in to the batter, you can also simply add chocolate chips as a simple alternative. Try this for a little comfort food on a chilly fall day.

  1. Blueberry zucchini bread

While you have probably tasted or seen variations of the previous breads, blueberry zucchini bread is sure to surprise in both taste and presentation. It’s a beautiful and festive addition to any fall bread lineup that takes the best of the zucchini bread recipe above and enhances it by adding sweet berries. With all of those fruits and veggies in there, this bread has to be healthy, right?
