Homemade Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread & Mini Muffins

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread on time2saveworkshops.com

It’s that time of year again. Cool nights, football, bonfires, chili, and of course all things pumpkin. I’ve been looking for a healthier whole wheat pumpkin bread recipe for several weeks. Most of the recipes I found called for several cups of sugar. Since we made a commitment to eat healthier this year, I wanted to find an alternative that included wheat flour and honey.  I found the original recipe on 100 Days of Real Food but tweaked it a bit to better suit our taste. I also made mini-muffins since my kiddos were anxious for breakfast this morning. I knew that waiting for a loaf of bread to cook might send their hungry little bellies over the edge.  The muffins and bread turned out so moist and yummy!

    I was wondering if you had any recipe ideas for the advocare challenge. We are about to start this challenge and I am searching for recipes to help us get used to it. We are also trying to implement the clean eating stuff so I have gotten rid of almost all our processed foods but It is was expensive to eat clean and there’s almost no coupons for clean stuff either. This is gonna be a challenge but life is full of hard things and I know God is in this and He will help us complete our challenge and help us to be healthier. Thank you for anything help you could provide in this.
