Healthier for you Pumpkin Bread {Recipe}

I must confess, I’m not a big fan of pumpkin.  Gasp!  Shameful, I know.  Tis the season for pumpkin everything too.  I don’t want to be a party pooper though and I do like pumpkin bread and the occasional pumpkin cake.  It’s probably all of the sugar added, ha!  Anyway, I came across this Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread recipe a few years back and it’s really good!  A healthier for you pumpkin bread?  Yes please!  And my girls love this pumpkin bread too.  It’s a win-win!  Baking is really relaxing for me.  It is good for my soul!  Since being done with chemo I’ve been trying to do more things that I really enjoy.  There’s just something soothing about mixing a whole bunch of ingredients together and having it turn into something delicious.

Here are the big players in this recipe that make it healthier for you-
