I hope that by posting this recipe in Mid-December, the Pumpkin craze has not ended yet. Is everyone sick of pumpkin by now? If you are like me, you never get tired of it! Here’s a pumpkin bread that can also be made into muffins. It’s a healthy spin on the traditional recipe which sacrifices no flavor or texture. These are moist, chocolatey, filling yet light.  I serve this as breakfast, snacks, and give it to neighbors for Holiday treats. Sometimes it even shows up in the kids’ lunchboxes.

I don’t believe that anyone should ever feel guilty about eating any particular food. There’s room for everything in every diet, right? Well, if any recipe was ever guilt-free, this would be the one. This bread is chocked full of nutrition from all whole foods. Following is all the glorious nutrition you will get from two 1 inch slices of this bread or 2 regular muffins:

  • 2 3/4 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 15 oz. Pumpkin Puree NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling
  • 1 Cup Applesauce unsweetened
  • 1 Cup Greek or Plain Non-fat yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed + 6 Tablespoons water
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 3/4 Cup Semi-sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Pecans chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease two 9 x 5 x 3-inch bread loaf pans or 2 1/2 muffin tins.
  • In a small bowl, mix all wet ingredients together with a wire whisk or an electric hand mixer until well combined.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Do not over stir or the bread will come out too flat and dense.
  • Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
  • Bake muffins for 20-30 minutes or bread loaves for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let the bread sit in the pan for 5 minutes after removing from oven.


Serve warm or store in the fridge for up to one week. These also freeze and reheat very nicely.
