Pumpkin Spice Bread

Pumpkin Spice Bread. 100 calories a slice! Savory in flavor.

I know it is still August, but since I leave for Ireland in four days, I am ready for fall! This is one of my favorite seasons, especially for the spices and tastes that come out within the next few months. Although many pumpkin breads are filled with cream cheese, creams, and oils, here is a deliciously moist and low-calorie pumpkin spice bread. This recipe makes 2 loaves. If you cut the bread into 16 pieces, each slice is about 100 calories! Enjoy these delicious and savory flavors to get you ready for fall!


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups Splenda
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup no-sugar added applesauce
3 eggs
15 oz Pumpkin puree (not the pie filling– pure pumpkin puree)


1. In a large bowl mix together flour, splenda, baking soda, baking powder.


2. Add in the cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.



3. Slowly add in the applesauce, eggs, and the pumpkin puree.

4. Make sure you scrape the bottom of the bowl and make sure that all of the ingredients are mixed together fully to create a smooth batter.

5. Spray 2 loaf pans and put half the batter into each pan.

6. Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 min. Take a toothpick and check the bread at this time. If the toothpick comes out clean, then you know it is done!

7. Take the bread out of the oven and turn it on its side on a cutting board to cool.

8. Make sure the bread cools for at least 10 min before trying to cut.

Happy Baking! Enjoy!

  1. Looks awesome. Good thing IRE has mail, so you can bake and send me stuff!

    Also, if you’re bored on the flight check out Alec Baldwin’s podcast called “Here’s the thing”. There are some good interviews – including one with Billy Joel that I think you’ll like – but a really interesting one all about sugar with some guy who is a sugar/health expert. When I heard it, I thought of you.

    Hope all is well and that you’re stoked for IRE.

  2. Can’t wait to try! Question: Is it 100 calories a slice if I cut both loaves in 16 slices each (for a total of 32 slices) or each loaf into 8 slices (for a total of 16 slices). I’m guessing the former, but “the bread” phrasing threw me off a little.

    Awesome recipe, and gorgeous photos!

    • If you use a normal size loaf pan as I did, it cuts into 16 slices nicely. Each one of those slices is about 100 calories. Therefore yielding to 32 slices total for the two loaves. Glad you like the recipe and let me know how yours turns out!
