Healthy(ish) Pumpkin Bread with Maple Cider Glaze
A delicious combination of fall flavors, all in a lightened up, healthy(ish) twist on pumpkin bread.
- 1 c pure pumpkin puree
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 c pancake mix
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp brown sugar or brown sugar substitute
- 3/4 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pecans (or pepitas), for topping
Maple Cider Glaze
- 1 c powdered sugar or powdered sugar substitute
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 2 tbsp apple cider
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Prepare loaf pan with cooking spray, set aside.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix until batter comes together and is mostly smooth.
Pour into prepared loaf pan and top with a few pecans (or pepitas!).
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until center is baked and a toothpick comes out clean. If the edges brown too quickly, top with a piece of foil.
Allow to cool until the pan can be touched with your bare hand before removing it from the pan.
Apple Cider Glaze
To make optional icing, combine all the ingredients until a thick but drizzly icing forms.
Once the banana bread is cooled, drizzle the icing over the top and enjoy!
Skip the icing to keep it healthier!
