Weight Watchers Points: 4.8 for 1/24th of recipe
Yield: 2 Loaves


  • I also like to use this recipe to make a dozen muffins and four mini-loaves. Decrease the baking time accordingly.
  • The 2.5 cups of pumpkin can be replaced by the same quantity of other fruit. Bananas, apples, cranberries, figs – all good choices. Try adding leftover jars of baby food to the mix.
  • These freeze very well.
