Sweet Pumpkin and Oat Bread

by Joanne on October 20, 2009

Have a can of pumpkin that you need to use up?  Did you only use a small amount of that HUGE can of pumpkin?  Here’s a great recipe if you have a bread maker.  It takes all of 5 minutes to dump in the ingredients, set the program to sweet bread, large loaf, medium crust and off you go. Yum!  *Adapted from “The Best Low-Fat, No-Sugar Bread Machine Cookbook Ever”, by Madge Rosenberg.  Suggestion:  Leftover bread will make a SUPER stuffing for poultry!

  • 3 TBS Dry Non Fat Milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger

  • 3/4 + 1/3 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/3 cup Rolled Oats

Add all the ingredients into your bread maker basket.  Set the Sweet Bread setting and enjoy the smell of the kitchen while this bread bakes.

For a 2 oz serving, it’s only about 160 calories!  * A standard piece of bread might be just over 1 oz.  Where’s the sugar?   Where’s the fat?  How healthy without forfeiting taste can you get?!!!

A “KIND” Gift.

I know you have seen these healthy, holistic snacks.  All natural, fruit and nuts and OH MY GOSH – So Good!  We received the corporate gift sample at work and they won’t last long. But that’s not why we recieved the gift.  We are checking out the “Kind Cube” as potential gifts for the holiday season to our customers.  I think it’s a super idea.  I like the idea of sending the bars to domestic customers.   Here is the cube at work.

UPDATE:   Help me pass along a “Kind Act” to someone.  Text “KINDED CODE  lotus50” to 30644.  or  Post  “Kinded code lotus50”  on www.kinded.com .    It would be neat to see how far this code travels. THANKS!

Here’s a little bit about “KIND” snacks:

About KIND Healthy Snacks

The path to KIND began 15 years ago with PeaceWorks Inc., an innovative “not-ONLY-for-profit” business fostering joint business ventures among neighbors striving to co-exist in conflict regions worldwide, using market forces to break stereotypes and barriers. In 2003, after several successful ventures, our founder, Daniel Lubetzky, was still searching for that elusive snack that tasted good and was good for you, and eventually conceived KIND – as a brand of healthy snacks that are “KIND to your body, your taste buds, & the world.” KIND Snacks was founded on the principle of holistic “KINDness”: you need not sacrifice health for taste, or social mission for financial sustainability, nor your happiness for others.’ KIND Snacks not only helps fight growing health epidemics such as obesity and diabetes, but is totally transparent in its approach to create delicious, healthy food that looks and tastes delicious.
