This is a past post from the New Nostalgia archives. I love visiting post from the past, especially seasonal type posts. It is a great reminder to me of what I love, and what was post worthy! I will be taking a trip down “past posts” road occasionally in the month of October, as it is a month where we will be out of town the last 2 weeks. We are going on our very first big family trip where my girls will the fly for the first time and see the ocean for the first time! More on that in posts to come…for now, enjoy this Healthy No Fat Pumpkin Bread post from the past!
I am so very happy to have found this recipe! I have made it twice in 4 days and may make some more tomorrow…it is THAT good. It is a vegan recipe, but it would be a keeper even if I were not vegan. It is a recipe by Happy Herbivore that has been getting lots of attention on twitter, so I am not the only one who loves it.
Back to the bread..it was super moist but had a nice crunch on the sides and bottom. Loved that. I cut the brown sugar down to 3/4 cup, that was plenty. I used almond milk. I loved that there was no fat used, and if you are out of eggs, NO PROBLEM, for there are no eggs in this recipe. It is amazing how much cheaper a recipe is with no butter and eggs!

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook (p. 52)
½ tspbaking powder
1 tspbaking soda
2 cupswhole wheat flour
2 tbsppumpkin pie spice
1 tspvanilla extract
2 tbsppure maple syrup
1 cupbrown sugar
¼ tsplemon juice
¼ cupnon-dairy milk
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease or spray a standard bread pan. Whisk non-dairy milk and lemon juice together until bubbly and set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, cream pumpkin, sugar, syrup and extract together. In a large bowl, whisk pumpkin pie spice, flour, baking soda and baking powder together. Pour both wet mixtures into dry mixture and stir until just combined. Pour into bread pan, using a spatula to evenly distribute and smooth out the top. Grab a large piece of aluminum foil and make a tent over the pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Once the bread has cooled but is still slightly warm, gently remove it from the pan and on to a serving plate.
