healthy greek yogurt pumpkin bread.

Is there anything more fall than a good pumpkin bread?  I love it so much and it always makes the house smell wonderful.  But, I also have to try really hard to find a recipe that isn’t full of butter and/or oil.  Why does it have to be so difficult?  Answer: it doesn’t.  I officially found the best recipe ever.  It’s quick, light, and just dang delicious.  So here it goes:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling and NOT the entire can)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (I omitted because I didn’t have it and added a little extra pumpkin pie spice)
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (blended oats)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped nuts, optional
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a bread pan and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the pumpkin, Greek yogurt, egg, vanilla, coconut oil (make sure it is melted), and brown sugar until well combined,
  3. In another bowl, stir together the flour, oat flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg.
  4. Mix the wet into the dry until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips or nuts if you’d like
  5. Pour into the prepared bread ban and bake for 55-65 minutes or until a fork when inserted into the center comes out clean or the bread starts to pull away from the edges.
