Healthy One Bowl Pumpkin Bread This Healthy One Bowl Pumpkin Bread is generously spiced and has a soft and tender crumb. The batter is easy to make in one bowl. Ingredients:
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
½ cup honey or pure maple syrup
1 cup pure canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 large eggs
¼ cup milk (whichever kind you prefer)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Place melted butter in a large bowl (I melt it right in the large bowl in the microwave). Whisk in the honey (or pure maple syrup) and pumpkin, followed by the eggs, milk and vanilla.
Sprinkle in the baking soda, baking powder and salt and whisk until well combined. Add the cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves and ginger and whisk until well combined.
Add the flour and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined. Do not overmix.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 40-55 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out just clean. Check the bread starting at about 35 minutes and cover it loosely with foil if the top is browning too quickly. For bread that is baked through but not dry, be careful not to over- or under-bake.
Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack before slicing and serving.
Bread will keep at room temperature for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Cool completely, wrap tightly in plastic and then place in a zip-top bag and freeze.
