Easy Pumpkin Bread


Okay. This is the BEST Easy Pumpkin Bread I have ever had: Truly! So before you read on, I started with a mix. We were short on ingredients and times so since we now have Trader Joes in Birmingham, I bought their pumpkin bread mix because my niece, Carlie, has been raving about it. You know me. I played around with the box mix directions to my liking (and to make it healthier). I halved the oil and used only 1/4 cup and added 1 (6-ounce) container nonfat plain Greek yogurt (I used Fage). I also added 3/4 cup chopped pecans. The baking time on the box said 55 to 60 minutes. I only cooked mine about 45 minutes so be sure to insert a toothpick around 45 minutes in the center and see if it comes out clean. This is such a great recipe and mix, and my kids said that this is their favorite pumpkin bread. It’s great for breakfast, with coffee, dessert, for an after-school snack or even food gifts for the holidays.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with Greek Yogurt

I have been wanting to create a new pumpkin bread recipe since it is my favorite thing to serve on Thanksgiving morning. This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread with Greek Yogurt is my newest favorite! It’s so easy to prepare that my daughter, Leigh, did most of the work on her own. Feel free to omit the chocolate chips if you like, but it’s not overly sweet. I also used chopped pecans, but walnuts would work great too (or you can omit them if you have nut allergies). Use nonfat Greek yogurt for best results (Chobani or Fage work great). This also makes a great holiday food gift, and I plan to make a lot more! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your holiday 🙂
