Pumpkin Nut Bread Recipe (and a Fit Body Bakery Giveaway!)

Disclaimer: Through my affiliation with Fit Approach, I received two boxes of Fit Body Bakery products in exchange for this recipe and review.  As always, all opinions are my own.

Its no secret that I love cooking and baking.  I don’t bake as often as I’d like to, partly because the time and effort it takes to bake from scratch, and then clean up the mess that pulling out the flour, sugar, and other baking ingredients makes, is sometimes just not worth it.  While I could always rely on boxed mixes, most mixes are very high in calories, sugar, and preservatives.

So when I got the opportunity to try out two boxes of Fit Body Bakery products, I immediately jumped at the chance.

Fit Body Bakery currently has four different mixes on the market: a cookie mix, a brownie mix, a muffin mix, and a pancake mix.  All four mixes are low in fat and sugar, and are also gluten free.  They are 100% natural, meaning they don’t contain any preservatives or artificial ingredients.  Each mix is also high in protein, making them a great treat to have while trying to live an active and healthy lifestyle.

I received two of the four mixes, the Motivator Muffin and Power Up Pancake mixes.  Using the muffin mix, I decided to make another bread recipe, incorporating many people’s favorite fall flavors: pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

bread ingredients

Ingredients:

1 box Fit Body Bakery Motivator Muffin Mix
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 can pure pumpkin (15 oz)
1 cup milk
4 egg whites
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Shortening

Instructions:

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the muffin mix, applesauce, pumpkin, milk, egg whites, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Stir in the chopped pecans.
  3. Using shortening, grease an 8-by-4-inch loaf pan. Pour the batter into the greased pan.
  4. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  5. Cool the bread in the pan for 15 minutes, then continue cooling on a baking rack until cooled completely.
