The Fall is one of my favorite seasons. The color changes are beautiful, and I LOVE soups and warm breads, and all the comfort foods of Fall. Tonight, I decided to welcome fall with a hot and spicy pumpkin bread when we returned from our fall trip to Aspen, Colorado to see the colors.
Homemade savory breads do not need oil, butter or eggs. A combination of lemon juice and non-dairy milk provides the “eggs and oil” in typical breads.
The pumpkin bread lasted less than an hour in my kitchen, and it never even got to cool down to properly. That makes it a win!
Enjoy the spicy pumpkin without the fat and calories!Print
