Healthy Pumpkin Bread

Healthy Pumpkin Bread
Serves about 12 (makes one loaf)
Recipe type: Desserts
Serves: 12
  • 3 tablespoons of Stevia powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of all natural applesauce
  • 2 cups of unbleached 100% whole wheat flour (I use King Arthur’s)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of 100% pure pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon of ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon of allspice
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Note: You can substitute 2 ½ teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice for the ginger, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon, if you prefer.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Use cooking spray to lightly coat loaf pans.
  2. Mix the Stevia, applesauce and egg until creamy. Add the pumpkin and beat until smooth. Add the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Spoon into loaf pan.
  3. Bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the bread/cake comes out clean.
  4. Note: You can use this recipe to make muffins, but they cook faster. So check them frequently.
