Serving size: 1 slice (50g)

Calories: 130 calories


  • 1-34 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend, packed

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 14 tsp baking powder

  • 14 tsp salt

  • 12 tsp cinnamon

  • 14 tsp nutmeg

  • Pinch of clove

  • 12 cup butter

  • 13 cup milk

  • 1-14 cup canned pumpkin

  • 2 eggs

  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 12 cup finely chopped dates, optional

  • 13 cup shelled pepita seeds

  • Non-stick cooking spray


  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 350°F with a rack in the center position.

  • 2.

    Grease a 5” x 9” loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray, set aside.

  • 3.

    Combine the flour, Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

  • 4.

    In a pot, or in the microwave, gently melt the butter with the milk. Pour the butter and milk into a second large mixing bowl. Whisk the pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla into the milk mixture. Once combined, pour the pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Whisk until thoroughly combined.

  • 5.

    If using dates, fold in the chopped dates at this point. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the pepita seeds on top of the pumpkin bread and bake for 40 minutes.

  • 6.

    After 40 minutes, carefully tent a piece of aluminum foil over the pumpkin bread, to prevent the pepita seeds from becoming too toasted. Rotate the loaf pan, front to back, to ensure even baking. Continue to bake with the foil tented on top, for an additional 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • 7.

    Remove the loaf from the oven and cool in the pan for several hours. Once the loaf pan has cooled sufficiently for you to touch it, remove the pumpkin bread from the loaf pan and continue to cool for two hours before slicing.

  • 8.

    Serve the pumpkin bread at room temperature. Leftovers can be stored, tightly wrapped, at room temperature for two days, or refrigerated for up to five days.

*This bread has 130 calories and 10 grams of sugar per serving (including dates) compared to the brown sugar-sweetened version which has 160 calories and 21 grams of sugar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pumpkin Bread I made this recipe and put in 3 mini pans. I added raisins to one pan. I will definitely be making again. I did not put, the Pepita seed in it. Absolutely delicious and very light and moist!❤️

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and Good Really good tasting. Took way longer to bake than the initial 40 min. then turn for 30 more min. Turned again and baked for 10 mins, then another turn for 8 more minutes. Also, why couldn't I print the nutritional values with the recipe?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So tasty I made this today and it is delicious. I cut the sugar a little because the dates make it so sweet. It is a very solid loaf and will make a fast breakfast choice with a glass of milk. I used pumpkin that I roasted and mashed since there were so many at the market.
