Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread


Before I get into my recipe for Throw it Together Thursday I have to show you something I've found recently.  Creme Brulee at the grocery store! Woohoo! You just broil it with the raw sugar they provide and it's done.  I feel like royalty when I have creme brulee and I love being able to have this in the comfort of my own home.  I found this in the cold dairy section of my HEB.  Little side note though, probably not as good as you get at a fine dining restaurant but add some pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg and cinnamon with the sugar on top and it's pretty yummy!


Yum!


So onto my recipe, Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bread.  I took a recipe from allrecipes.com, my go to for random recipes that I don't find on Pinterest and modified it to make it a bit healthier.  


What you need:
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 2 single-serve cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1 1/2 raisins
  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/2 cup quick cook oats


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the pumpkin, applesauce, brown sugar together.  Add the water and eggs and mix till smooth.  In other bowl sift together the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt, and spices.  You can use 1 1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice in place of these or you can also add 1/2 tsp nutmeg to the recipe.  I have a 9 month old so I avoid nut products in what I'm cooking right now.  




Mix the wet and the dry together and pour into pans and stir in the raisins.  Once in the pans, sprinkle the oats on the tops and use your fingers to press the oats into the mix not too hard just so that it sticks to the top of the loaves.  I didn't to this but as an after thought sprinkling some brown sugar over the oats would be mighty tasty!

Then place in the oven for 50 minutes for bread loaves or 35 minutes for muffins.
