Healthier Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Bread

Hello Friends!

Today is most definitely a fall day in my books. With overcast skies , leaves falling from trees, and a cool fall breeze, I felt obligated to bake something. During this time of year whatever I am baking is pumpkin; pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bars, and today pumpkin bread! This recipe is so easy and much healthier than your normal pumpkin bread with all of the butter and grease. I will have all of the measurements listed below.

What you will need:

I used this mini loaf pan so that I could give gift some to the neighbors but use whatever pan or mold you would like!

I topped a couple of mine with some chocolate chips but I think dried cranberries would be yummy to try too!

Because my pan was mini loafs they did not take as long to cook. With this pan, they were only in for about 45 minutes rotating from the top to bottom shelf in my oven.

I found these super adorable printable labels to tie around my loafs. I just taped the paper on to wax paper and cut around it and then used some bakers twine to wrap it around and tie it. I love the way they turned out! I will have them linked below.
