I have been on a pumpkin kick now for a while and I can’t seem to get enough! I tried out this recipe which is a combination of healthy bread recipes that I have made in the past but added in a couple of my own twists. It is low in fat but super tasty.
This bread is great topped with a little light butter or peanut butter to amp up the protein!
The flavor is light on the pumpkin spice so if you prefer it to have more of that pumpkin flavor add 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice instead of 1!
HEALTHY PUMPKIN BREAD
3/4 cup pumpkin puree (about 1/2 can)
2 tsp vegetable oil
¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
1/2 cup water
1-teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1-cup whole-wheat flour
¾ cup white flour
1-teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1-teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional, I use it because I love cinnamon)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9X5 Loaf pan with baking spray. In medium bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices and mix well.
In a large bowl mix eggs, oil, pumpkin, and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix until combined.
Pour batter into the loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes.
Check with a toothpick before removing from the oven to make sure the middle is cooked.
Let cool for 10 minutes and Enjoy!
