hearty pumpkin bread
(adapted from a recipe that i found online forever ago and i can no longer find it.)
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
8 ounces canned unsweetened pumpkin
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 egg white
1/3 cup fat-free milk (i use almond or soy)
1/2 cup dried fruits (cranberries, blueberries, raisins, etc) or nuts
mix the flour, flaxseed, soda, powder, salt, and spices in a large bowl.
whisk the pumpkin, sugars, applesauce, eggs, and milk in a medium bowl.
pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and gently stir together. fold in the dried fruit/nuts. pour into 9 by 5 inch loaf pan.
bake about 40 minutes until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
we added in a dry fruit mix of cranberries, blueberries, and raisins from trader joe's, chopped walnuts, and some chia seeds. such an easy, non-temperamental recipe. let me know how it goes if you decide to try it!
