There is just something about fall.

Come September I am ready for boots and sweaters and a whole lot of coziness. I crave maple syrup and hot apple cider and soup of all kinds.

And pumpkin. Oh, how I crave pumpkin!

Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less

This year, since I am still *trying* to be good, I thought I would forgo my favorite Starbucks Pumpkin Loaf for a skinnier, healthier version. My expectations weren’t actually that high, but it was a fun Saturday project for the girls and I, and amazingly enough, our skinny pumpkin bread was incredible! Moist, delicious, with awesome texture and flavor and only 125 calories per slice (at 12 slices per loaf). What more could you want?

Assemble your ingredients for the skinny pumpkin bread: Whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground ginger, ground cloves, eggs, sugar, ripe bananas mashed, vanilla, coconut oil, unsweetened almond milk and pureed pumpkin.

Here is what you need:

6 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
5 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups very ripe banana, mashed
1 tablespoon vanilla
2/3 cup coconut oil
1 1/3 cups Unsweetened Silk Almond Milk 
2 cans pumpkin
 

Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices in large bowl.

Step 1:  Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices in large bowl; set aside.

Beat eggs & sugar on low until mixed.

Step 2: Beat eggs & sugar on low until mixed, then on high for 30 seconds.

Add banana, vanilla, coconut oil, and almond milk to mixer and blend.  

Step 3:  Add banana, vanilla, coconut oil, and Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk. Blend for one minute. In a pinch the sweetened almond milk will work too, it will just make the bread slightly sweeter and slightly higher in calories. (The unsweetened almond milk contains only 30 calories per cup!)

 Add 2 cans pumpkin of pumpkin and mix until blended.

Step 4: Add 2 cans pumpkin; mix until blended.

With mixer on low, slowly add flour mixture to wet ingredients.

Step 5:  With mixer on low, slowly add flour mixture to wet ingredients.

Blend pumpkin mixture until combined well.

Step 6:  Blend until mixed well, but do not over stir!

Divide pumpkin bread batter into four reusable loaf pans.

Step 7:  Grease or spray 4 loaf pans with cooking spray. (I like the size of the disposable ones, which I wash and reuse every time. ) Divide the batter into the four pans. Tap each one gently on counter to remove air bubbles.

Let baked pumpkin bread loafs cool on rack.

Step 8:  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes, until knife inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool on wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and let cool completely. Makes 4 loaves.

Once cooled, slice and serve pumpkin bread to enjoy.
