Homemade Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread & Mini Muffins

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread on

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!

  1. Good for you! It definitely is a challenge, especially in the beginning to change your eating habits. My husband and I have just completed our second 24-Day Challenge and feel so much better. I have posted a couple of AdvoCare friendly recipes, just click the following link and scroll down.

    So excited for you as you begin this journey to eat healthy.


  2. 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.
