Tasty Tuesday: Lighter Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread

Pumpkin Cream Cheese BreadI adore this time of year and all of the pumpkin deliciousness it brings! But many of those pumpkin goodies are not very weight loss friendly. This recipe is still just an occasional indulgence, but it is lightened up from the original version. Plus, anything that pairs pumpkin and cream cheese is a must try in my book 😉 Enjoy!

PUMPKIN BREAD INGREDIENTS:

2 cups canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!)
3 eggs
1 egg whites
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar** (I use the Splenda blend)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

CREAM CHEESE FILLING:

8 oz reduced fat cream cheese (room temperature or softened slightly)
4 tbsp sugar
1 egg
2 tsp flour
1 tsp vanilla

INSTRUCTIONS: 

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Prepare one mini loaf pan (it should hold 8 loaves) or 2 9×5 loaf pans with nonstick spray

Bread Layers:

  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer or hand mixer combine pumpkin, eggs and egg white until smooth
  2. In a separate medium bowl whisk together flour, sugars, baking soda & pumpkin pie spice
  3. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet mixing until just smooth, set aside

Cream Cheese Layer:

  • In another bowl either for your stand mixer or hand mixer combine all ingredients until smooth

Bread Assembly:

  1. Pour or spoon half of the pumpkin bread mixture into the bottom of the mini loaf pan or the large loaf pan
  2. Evenly divide the cream cheese mixture over the pumpkin bread mixture and smooth out using the back of a spoon
  3. Pour the remaining pumpkin bread mixture over the cream cheese mixture, covering as much as you can
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
  5. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes and then remove from the pans

NOTES:

Each mini loaf is 9 WW+ points, so divide as needed based on how many slices you get from the loaf
