Today I have for you a recipe remake of my Pumpkin Apple Bread. I love this bread, but I didn’t like the photos that I took last year, so I decided on remaking it so I can take new photos. The only difference in this bread is I shredded the apples, instead of dicing them up. You still have the great apple taste without the chunks. If you like diced apples, by all means dice those babies up!!
This recipe makes for one big loaf or 3 mini loaves. As you know I like to making mini loaves for sharing. My Husband likes to take them to work and have them for breakfast. Me, I love to just eat them fresh out of the oven while there still warm, smeared with pumpkin butter!
This bread is pretty healthy too! it comes in at 80 calories a slice and doesn’t contain oil or butter! To moisten the bread I used applesauce and greek yogurt. This bread is unbelievably moist!! Guilt-free and delicious, who could ask for more?
- 1½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 3 egg whites
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin, canned not pumpkin pie filling
- ¼ cup greek yogurt, plain
- ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. pumpkin spice
- ½ cup apple – peeled, cored and diced or shredded
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Spray 1 large or three mini bread pans with cooking spray; set a side.
- In a large bowl add flour, baking soda and salt; set a side
- In a medium bowl, add egg whites and sugar. Mix until incorporated. Add pumpkin, yogurt and applesauce. Mix until incorporated. Add the spices and mix well.
- Slowly pour the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture and mix until combined, but do not over mix.
- Fold in apples.
- Evenly pour batter into prepared bread pans.
- Bake 30 minutes for mini loafs and 50 - 60 min. for large loaf.
- Insert a toothpick, if it comes out clean, the bread is done.
This week’s recipe recap:
Sunday, was my weekly recap plus I made Cinnamon and Sugar Lavash Chips. I love these chips, they are easy to make, delicious, crunchy and low-calorie. I’ll take that! If you haven’t used Lavash Bread for chips, you should try it!! The sweetness and crunch are the best!
Monday – Spiced Almonds – These were highly, highly addicting. I snacked on so many tonight, that I had to go light on dinner. Not only are they addicting their pretty healthy too. Almonds are a wonderful snack that gives you energy and healthy fats, as long as you can control yourself from eating them. I need to give them away, because they are dangerous in my house!!
Tuesday – Chili Dogs – I know this isn’t a healthy recipe, but it was something that I made for my Husband. It is another Emeril Lagasse recipe, and my Husband LOVED them! Back in Buffalo, he would order these and call them sh!tty canoes. Don’t ask! I really do wish I could share the recipe with you. But I do try to sneak in hints of what is in them in my posts. Only one more recipe to share with you, and it’s one that is pretty easy to make. I’ll be sure to give detailed hints in what is in it so you can make it!
Wednesday – Lunch Box for Kids – I had fun with this post and it wasn’t really a recipe, but something that I am proud to be apart of. It is so important to teach our kids to eat healthy. 33% of kids in the US are at obesity level! How sad is that? It’s the highest in the world. In Germany the obesity weight is only 12%. We need to stop super sizing our meals and eating crap!! At least limit the crap! 🙂
Thursday – Gingerbread Frappe – Yes this was an early recipe, but being near 100’s this week, I was still craving cold drinks. This drink is sweet and spicy! I just loved it and I’m not even a Gingerbread person. My Husband already told me to start making hot drinks. They are harder ones for me to make, but I’ll do my best the next couple of seasons. I already have some recipes in my head, that I want to try out!
Friday – Maple Pumpkin Butter – This pumpkin butter is so darn good! I have been eating it on pumpkin bread, toast and mixing in my yogurt. Pumpkin Butter is so easy to make, that you have to try it. You’ll love it!! Oh and the aroma of it cooking in your home is wonderful, warm and comforting. It’s worth making it just for the smell!!
Saturday – Emerils Sandwich Caprese – I love this sandwich, it’s in my top 10 favorite sandwiches of all time. I don’t know what it is about the combination of tomato and basil, but I can’t get enough of it!!! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for Emeril’s Cookbook! I think you will like it no matter if you are a meat eater, vegan, vegetarian or someone who likes to make breads, dips and spreads!
I am currently heading home from the Food Daily/Buzz event this weekend! I will fill you in with photos and more sometime this week.
Have a great Sunday!!
P.S. This weeks craving: Coconut Chicken with Mango Chutney! Coconut Chicken is one of my favorite recipes!!
