Healthier……Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

I love Starbucks, I wish I made more money so I could get a coffee there every day, maybe even three times a day!!!  I digress…….I don’t want to, but I will.  Their lemon and pumpkin loaves are delish!!  I could eat an entire loaf, one day I should try it!  I’ve always wanted to try a recipe with yogurt or applesauce instead of oil, this recipe allows me to do it, and it is amazingly delicious.


1  1/2 c. All Purpose Flour

1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/4 tsp. Ground Cloves

1/4 tsp. Ground Nutmeg

1  1/2 c. Sugar

1/2 c. Fat Free VanillaYogurt

3 Egg Whites

1 c. Canned Pumpkin



Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a loaf pan, set aside.

Sift the flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, and nutmeg, into a mixing bowl. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, yogurt, and egg whites. Whisk thoroughly until blended. Stir in the pumpkin. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture. Stir until completely incorporated.

Pour into pan and bake for 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cool on a wire rack.  Makes one large loaf or four mini loaves.  This is very dense and moist, delicious!!!

Add a powdered sugar glaze if you wish!
