Harvest Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe

For some people, the sight of lights brings them right back to the feeling of the holidays.

For me, it’s always been the smells.

If my house doesn’t smell wonderful during the holidays, then it just doesn’t feel right.

But, if you’re like me, you’re also trying to cut back the calories. SIGH.

Imagine baking some of your favorite holiday treats but without the calories of sugar!

Just by swapping one cup of sugar with one cup of SPLENDA┬« No Calorie Sweetener, you can save more than 600 calories.

But will it work in some of my favorite holidays recipes, including an old recipe from my grandma?

Challenge accepted! Time to break out our Harvest Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe.

Splenda No Calorie Sweetener

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 3 cups SPLENDA┬« No Calorie Sweetener
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups (15 oz. can) cooked pumpkin
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

You’ll notice that my photos don’t include the pumpkin spice bread with walnuts.

We have a nut allergy in the house… but if you aren’t allergic, the walnuts really are an important part of what makes this recipe taste so amazing.

It still tastes good without them, but I would opt for them if you’re not allergic.

Directions:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Beat eggs gently with sugar in large mixing bowl.

Step 3: Add shortening, applesauce and pumpkin.
