Greek yogurt keeps this Pumpkin Yogurt Bread super moist but still low in fat and calories. This light and skinny pumpkin bread is a healthy way to get your pumpkin fix!
I have gotten into the (bad) habit of going to Starbucks before work almost every morning. And almost every morning while I wait in line, I stare into that pastry case. It is so hard to resist their delicious baked goods. The fact that NYC posts the calories next to each food item does aid in my self control a little bit (how does a raspberry scone have 480 calories?!), but sometimes I just can’t help myself. When I give in to the temptation, I almost always pick the pumpkin loaf. I am obsessed with pumpkin, and the Starbucks loaf is so moist and full of flavor. However at 390 calories a slice, I am pretty sure there is a lot of oil contributing to that texture! So I decided to make my own pumpkin bread, using yogurt to keep it moist and lower in calories and fat. (I love baking with yogurt, like here and here) The results were amazing! It had great pumpkin flavor, highlighted by the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. The yogurt gave the bread a great texture, and underbaking the bread just slightly also helped to keep it very moist. This pumpkin yogurt bread was just as good as Starbucks, and I didn’t feel guilty about eating more than one slice!
More pumpkin goodness!
