I have a weakness for bread. And bread is one of the worst things for you and so high in carbs. This bread turned out fantastic for being lower in calories! But is it any good? It is delicious! And you would never know that you use applesauce and wheat flour in it. It didn’t last long in our house, it was too yummy!

Skinny pumpkin cream cheese bread sliced into one inch slices with white pumpkins all around.

    1. I have since changed it so that it doesn’t say the exact calories hoping I wouldn’t receive further comments. Also it makes 2 loaves, not one.

  1. Hello,
    I want to make this recipe using granulated sugar, no substitutes. Would you please tell me the measurements for it? I know it won’t be considered ‘skinny’ bread and that’s okay. Love your recipes.
    Thanks, Kathy Rea

  2. Can any of your recipes be eaten by a Diabetic? Carb counts and sugar counts, otherwise Nutrition labels would be appreciated if possible.

  3. Hi. I’m hoping the sodium amount is a misprint. Says over 2,000 mg. Doesn’t look like any actual sodium/salt is added. I know there’s a lot of sodium in the other items, but it still seems too high.
