Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 0.5 tsp nutmeg
  • 0.5 tsp cloves
  • 1/3 cup butter or ghee, softened
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup Truvia or sugar

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined.
  • Place a wax paper sheet at the bottom of a loaf pan. This recipe makes one loaf and can be doubled to make two loaves.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Cook for 65-75 minutes, or until a toothpick comes put of the middle clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes and serve.

Notes: This is a healthier version compared to one that used white enriched flour and 1 cup of sugar. You may substitute but I find this version is the right kind of sweet and healthier too. The white flour may also produce a taller loaf.
