This is a moist, healthy pumpkin bread recipe that has the perfect amount of flavor. No butter or oil added. My family loves it. Sprinkle a brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over the top before baking, if desired.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

  • Combine flour, wheat germ, chocolate chips, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger in a large bowl.

  • Mix applesauce, pumpkin, and sugar together in a small bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients; mix until well combined. Transfer to the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool completely.

Cook's Note:

You can use white flour instead of whole wheat, if preferred.
