Pumpkin Seed Bread

I've made pumpkin bread before, but the can of pumpkin is spread over 3 loaves,
and this time I wanted something with a deeper flavor and less of a dessert loaf.
Plus I wanted to throw in some seeds- so here is my more rustic recipe for Pumpkin bread
it is delicious!

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cloves
2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup pepitas; toasted (pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1   preheat oven to 350 degrees F, grease 1 bread pan
2   in a small bowl mix together the flours, soda, powder, salt, and spices
3   in a larger bowl, using an electric mixer, mix the sugars and oil until well combined
4   then mix in the eggs, 1 at a time
5   pour 1/2 the flour mixture in and mix until just combined, repeat with the other 1/2
6   then hand mix in the water, sunflower seeds, and 1/2 of the pepitas
7   pour into bread pan, sprinkle remaining pepitas on top
8   bake for 45-55 minutes, until browned and cooked through
9   let cool and serve in slices with butter & maybe some cinnamon or apple butter on top
