I wasn’t feeling great at the start of this week. One of the twins kept asking for pumpkin bread, but when I am sick, I think cooking is kind of gross- like I am passing on the germs, so I try not to do it until I am better. Is this weird? i have been known to be a bit germaphobic, so i guess it’s normal for me.
Coming off of not eating much, I looked over my regular recipe for pumpkin bread and decided I needed a healthier one. Not everyone eats pumpkin bread in my house, but my little guy loves it! Because he is a good eater in general, I know that I have a little wiggle room on making it a bit differently this time. Since I only have wheat flour around right now, and no white, I found this one from Cooking Light that uses some whole wheat flour that I decided to use, mostly because it looked like I could tweek it a bit, to use the ingredients that I have already on hand.
I made it even lighter and healthier in my eyes by adjusting all the flour to wheat, using olive instead of canola, and decreasing the sugar by 1/2 cup overall.
Here it is:
Not too shabby for 8 in the morning! She’s back kids- so wash your hands, so I don’t get sick again!
