To continue my pumpkin kick… Another tried and true fall recipe is this Healthified Pumpkin Bread. It makes two loaves (freeze one, or give it to a friend), its healthier than a typical pumpkin bread, and its super moist and delicious. Not to mention, it’s very easy to make! Hubby is always trying to suggest we make cream cheese frosting to serve with the bread… I keep trying to explain that it defeats the whole “healthified” aspect. Maybe some day I’ll surprise him with some cream cheese frosting 🙂
This one comes direct from Live Better America. – one of the many, many recipe newsletters I receive. I seriously have a recipe hoarding problem. The amount of recipes in my cookbook (not including all the ones saved on Pinterest and Foodgawker), exceeds the normal, “acceptable” amount for someone my age… But I LOVE trying new recipes! That being said, there aren’t many recipes that I’ve made multiple times, because I’m always wanting to try a new ones… but this one is one of those recipes I’ve made several times now. The original recipe calls from ground cloves…. Yuck. I’ve left it out of mine, but your more than welcome to clove-it-up, if that’s your thing.
