pumpkin apple bread
The start of the fall season brings countless pumpkin-spice flavored snacks and recipes that are usually made with not so healthy ingredients. Since pumpkin is low in calories, with about 80 calories for one cup of pumpkin puree, it is an ingredient that you want to make the most of during the fall.
This healthier bread alternative is packed with whole grains, healthy fats and delicious flavor, making it the perfect breakfast to start your day.
Apples are also in season during autumn and have many health benefits. They have been known to reduce the risk of stroke, lower bad cholesterol and help prevent dementia as one ages. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples also may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.
