Healthy Mini Pumpkin Flaxseed Bread Recipe

I love one bowl, no mixer, quick bread recipes such as this one for Mini Flaxseed Pumpkin Bread Loaves. Not only is this so easy to prepare, but my kids can almost basically make them on their own with very little clean-up. I added a touch of nonfat Greek yogurt and ground Flaxseed to make these even healthier, moister and with added crunch, and my 3 children had no idea those ingredients were even in there. These Mini Pumpkin loaves make a great breakfast, afternoon snack or dessert that you can feel good about eating and serving to your kids. These also make wonderful Christmas food gifts as well :).

  1. I remember a few years ago, I had a mini pumpkin sitting on the kitchen table… it sat and and it sat… and then one morning I decided to do something with it. And I used it to make the most wonderful pancakes I’ve ever had. And this pumpkin bread looks equally tasty. Just wonderful!
