A favorite fall treat, a spiced pumpkin bread pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea, either toasted with butter, or with homemade cream cheese frosting (recipe included here!). With notes of cinnamon and cloves, sweetened with real sugar, this skinny pumpkin bread is lower in calories than the traditional version, but will satisfy that sweet tooth.

Prep Time 10minutes
Cook Time 1hour
15ozcanned pumpkin puree
2tbspcane sugarfor topping
Cream Cheese Frosting
1/3cupreduced fat cream cheese
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, baking powder, baking soda).
In another bowl, combine the pumpkin, vanilla extract, and eggs.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cane sugar, then bake for 45 minutes. (Your oven may need another 15 minutes, but I like the texture at 45 minutes).
For the cream cheese frosting, whisk together the cream cheese and maple syrup until smooth.
