12 Low Calorie Pumpkin Bread, Muffin & Scone Recipes

Easy Healthy Pumpkin Bread Muffin Scone Recipes

I have  a difficult time getting visions of pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin scones, healthy pumpkin cake, healthy pumpkin pie, and healthy low-fat pumpkin cookies out of my head. this time of year.

In addition to being good for you, pumpkin is a great replacement ingredient for some of the oil, butter or fat in quick bread, muffin and cake recipes. It adds the necessary moisture with a lot fewer calories.

The problem with a lot of pumpkin flavored baked treats – especially those you find in coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores and bakeries – is that they’re loaded with eggs and contain a ton of sugar and butter or oil or shortening – which means they’re going to be sky high in fat and calories. Did you know that slice of Starbucks pumpkin loaf weighs in at around 330 calories and 12 g of fat?  Or that a pumpkin muffin from Dunkin’ Donuts has a whopping 600 calories and 26 g of fat? (Talk about blowing the Weight Watchers daily PointsPlus budget!)

If you’re trying to lose weight and/or eat healthier, it’s best to avoid the pastry case and bake up a batch of lighter healthier pumpkin bread, muffins or scones from scratch at home where you can control the calories by selecting lighter ingredients.
