Pumpkin Bread

Recommended Posts

Preheat oven to 350, spray 9x13 lightly with cooking spray (or make muffins)

2c Pamela's baking mix

1.5c sugar (a lot, but you can reduce to 3/4 if you want)

2tsp cinnamon

1/4tsp cloves

3/4c egg whites (or 4 whole eggs)

2c canned pumpkin (or 1 15oz can)

NO oil!! (or use 1/3 c if desired)

You can frost with cream cheese frosting if desired

Stir together Pamelas, sugar, cinnamon, cloves

Stir in egg whites, pumpkin and oil (if using)

Combine well, pour into pan

Bake 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean

Cool in pan 2 hours before cutting (if you can stand it)

If doing muffins, you can use liners.

Breakdowns like this:

24 bars or 24 small muffins=100 calories

12 BIG muffins=200 calories

(will be less if you decrease the sugar!!!

Enjoy

Sounds yummy! I have a bad habit of eating half of what I bake as soon as it comes out of the oven, so a big muffin for only 200 cals sounds appealing! I'm allergic to squash though so I might turn this into a banana muffin recipe. Or carrot or sweet potato...any thoughts on how well that would work? :)


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.

This sounds really good!

I would try substituting the canned pumpkin puree for cooked sweet potato puree. Years ago I found this sweet potato muffin recipe that called for cooked sweet potato puree, they were delicious! You might have to experiment with the amount of sweet potato puree, I don't know if it would be a 1:1 ratio with the pumpkin puree, but it just might be.

It would also be good with mashed banana in place of the pumpkin puree.

With the sweet potato-I'm sure it would be awesome, you might want to add the oil to make sure it wouldn't be too dry--but maybe wait until the very end to see what the texture of the batter. It was like a cake batter that flowed into the pan very easy, not lumpy or gloppy, but not watery. My husband had a poker party last night and they disappeared really quickly--then the wives call me the next morning an complain that I shouldn't be baking for their husbands because they come home and want to be baked for :lol:

Update:

I made them again as muffins instead of bread, I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup which brings the 12count down to 150 calories !!! I didn't miss the sugar at all!

If making 12 muffins, spray tins lightly and then fill to the top of each cup. It filled each one perfectly! Bake for 30 minutes still-since they're so full.
