Pumpkin Bread Recipe with Molasses and Cranberries

By Naturally Savvy Recipes

Like the majority of orange colored vegetables and fruit, pumpkin is rich in carotenoids, potent antioxidants that have been shown to protect against a variety of diseases. Pumpkin also contains fiber and minerals like potassium, iron and zinc making it not only a delicious baking ingredient, but a healthy one too!

Ingredients:
2 cups Living Now Foods Gluten-Free All Purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup molasses
½ cup organic sugar
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup organic canned pumpkin (plain pumpkin purée, NOT pumpkin pie filling)
2 tablespoons organic apple juice (or orange juice)
