Pumpkin Spice Loaf

We hear the words ‘pumpkin spice’ this time of year and everyone becomes a little weak at the knees!  But imagine a pumpkin spice item that doesn’t mean your clean eating diet goes out the window? Try our Pumpkin Spice Loaf to enjoy that tasty yearly tradition without the big sugar/fat splurge! 

Pumpkin Spice Loaf (makes 12 slices):

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp all spice
1 egg beaten
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/6 cup honey (if you want a sweeter loaf add 1/4 cup)
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a loaf pan with parchment paper

2) Combine egg, pumpkin, yogurt, vanilla, coconut oil and honey until well mixed 

3) Add in all dry ingredients and stir until just combined

4) Pour into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean

5) Cool, slice and serve! Store in an airtight container (or in the fridge if you’d like it to stay fresh longer) 

Macronutrient Breakdown (per slice):
*keep in mind this loaf is not going to taste as sweet as those Starbucks loaves but that’s because you’re saving almost 5 tsp of sugar per slice 🙂 *
