We tend to forget about pumpkin when it isn’t Halloween or Thanksgiving, but since it has so much to offer nutritionally, you might consider making this year-round.
Ingredients

all-purpose flour

1½ cup(s)

packed brown sugar

cup(s), dark-variety

baking soda

1 tsp

ground ginger

1 tsp

ground cinnamon

1 tsp

baking powder

½ tsp

ground allspice

½ tsp

table salt

¼ tsp

canned pumpkin

1 cup(s), puree

mango chutney

8½ oz, large pieces chopped

golden seedless raisins

¾ cup(s)

chopped pecans

¼ cup(s), toasted

egg(s)

1 large

egg white(s)

2 large

vanilla lowfat yogurt

cup(s)

vegetable oil

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, allspice, and salt in a large bowl. Combine the pumpkin, chutney, raisins, pecans, egg, egg whites, yogurt, and oil in a small bowl. Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until just blended.
  3. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 60–70 minutes. Cool the bread in the pan on a rack 10 minutes; remove from the pan and cool completely on the rack. Cut into 10 slices. Yields 1 slice per serving.
Notes
Quick breads are great to wrap in individual slices and have in the freezer, ready to thaw (microwave a slice on High about 30 seconds) for a quick brunch, breakfast, or teatime treat.Quick breads such as this are an easy way to prepare brunch ahead of time. Enjoy a slice of this bread (try it toasted) with a 2-ounce low-fat breakfast sausage and a few fresh strawberries (will affect SmartPoints value).
