A friend introduced me to the wonder of white morsels in banana bread. I haven't gone back since.
I entered a recipe on here before, calling it Easy Pumpkin Bread, but once I realized how many calories it contained I knew I needed to alter it to make it healthier. So here, is the healthier version. I cut out 100 calories by using unsweetend applesauce in stead of oil.
I also realized that I had forgotten to include the amount of pumpkin pie mix to use in the other version of this recipe and have made sure to include it this one, since it is after all pumpkin bread.
By using pumpkin pie mix, instead of pumpkin puree, you don't need to add any seasonings. But feel free to add spices if you want, especially if you like more spice than pumpkin. Also, I ommitted adding any salt since baking soda adds plenty of salt to this recipe. Unless you love salt, you won't even realize it's missing.
To cut back even more calories, leave out the pecans, but make sure you alter the calorie count.
This has a very subtle flavor. Because I used pumpkin pie mix I omitted adding any other spices, but feel free to add nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and clove if you wish.
I found this recipe online and altered it to include whole wheat. I haven't tried it yet but I'll let you know what I think once I do.
I got this recipe from "The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook". The cookbook says there are more calories then was calculated on here, probably due to the different brands used in calculating the nutritional information. The original nutritional informations is as follows; 223 calories, 27 grams protein, 16 grams carbs, 5 grams fat, 66 miligrams of cholesterol, 1 gram fiber, 283 miligrams sodium.
Serve with brown rice and and steamed vegetables to make a hearty meal. But don't forget to calculate in the rice and vegetables to your meal.
This is one of my family's favorite dishes. You can make this even healthier by using reduced or fat free cream cheese and/or not using the butter or bread crumbs. Don't forget to recalculate the nutritional information if you do.
