Healthy Pumpkin Bread

Healthy Pumpkin Bread Recipe with canned pumpkin, applesauce, whole wheat flour, maple syrup and no sugar. Easy, moist and delicious.

I bake this healthy pumpkin bread recipe every Fall. It is hearty, healthy and delicious!

Years ago, when I first set my foot in Starbucks I was mesmerized by their baked goods. I did try their pumpkin bread which is tasty but waaaaaaay too sweet for my clean tooth. Also it is not made with wholesome ingredients. On a side note, it took me around 12 years of living in Canada before I stepped into Starbucks. Why go spend $2-5 for a cup of something you can make at home for $0.20?! When your entire family’s monthly income is $2K, you simply do not go to Starbucks.

And I still don’t go to Starbucks because now my Nespresso machine makes me fancy coffee at $1.10/cup.:)

Looking for more healthy baked goods to enjoy with a cup of joe? Try my popular healthy banana bread, healthy chocolate bread and healthy pumpkin muffins. If you feel like baking something pumpkin without flour, try these healthy pumpkin blondies or flourless pumpkin muffins.

Be healthy!
