Today I’m bringing you this Honey Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread. I think you all know by now that I love pumpkin. Mostly in baked goods. Like these donuts, or these cookies, or these. And these muffins and these pancakes.
What you may not know is that I try to be healthy most of the time. Particularly right now. After moving and the stress thereof, I find myself trying to eat much better than I have been. Because I haven’t been eating great. Because of the stress.
So when I saw this recipe for pumpkin bread without sugar or butter and only whole wheat flour, I was just a little bit excited.
And then I made it and ate it. So good!
It was still moist and perfect yummy pumpkin bread. I couldn’t even tell that it was a healthy version! I even took it to a friend’s house. Nobody seemed to mind that it was healthy – it just got eaten, and fast!
One of the best parts of this recipe is that it is simple – all mixed together in one bowl! Makes cleanup super easy!
