Healthy Recipes- Sweet Breads – Pumpkin Bread
Wholegrain pumpkin bread is a WONDERFUL healthy baked treat that makes a quick healthy breakfast and/or a great food choice to put in your children’s lunch box. (Just store this delicious bread in the freezer and take a piece out the day you want to eat it.)
There are so many healthy pumpkin treats you can make if you buy a Costco size can of pumpkin puree including pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie and even pumpkin ice cream. Pumpkins are LOW in calories (only 15 calories per 1/2 cup) and loaded with nutrients that are so good for your body.
The GREAT NEWS in the “Wonderful World Of Pumpkin Baking” is It Reduces the Need for Extra Fat! There is only 1 tablespoon of oil in this whole recipe! I have also made this same recipe with no oil and added a tablespoon more pumpkin puree. Read More→
Healthy Breakfast- Healthy Desserts -Gluten Free Baking – Dairy Free Baking- Chocolate Scones
My little boy Max is now 4 years old and he just LOVES to bake healthy treats with his mommy.
We talk about what we are putting into each recipe, and he often makes suggestions to “add more cinnamon,” or “another egg.” We make a mess, have a lot of fun, and together we experiment making new recipes.
The other day, Max came running down the stairs in the morning right after he woke up announcing that he wanted to bake chocolate scones for “Shoo Shoo,”…… who apparently was turning either 3…… or 5 …. , my son wasn’t exactly sure.
Although the news of Shoo Shoo’s birthday was a suprise to me, I was delighted to bake a sweet treat for him and off we went to create our chocolate scone recipe together.

Then each person could then have a piece of pumpkin pie and a bite or two of apple pie. What could be better than that!
The BEST part of this recipe, is it is so easy to make. The apple pie filling can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator, and the Mini Fillo Shells are purchased from your local store or online! What could be easier! Read More→
