Since it feels like autumn here in West Virginia, I am craving pumpkin! What better way to start off the fall season than with pumpkin-oat bread?!
This recipe will make 24 servings of this yummy bread! Each piece is 4 points for my Weight Watchers friends!!!
Here I will take you step by step thru the recipe:
Pumpkin-Oat Bread – Weight Watchers recipe
1/2 cup regular butter, softened
1 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs, beaten
2 cups canned pumpkin
1/4 tsp table salt
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, or more to taste
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups uncooked quick oats
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
24 walnut halves
I add a few dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg to mine!
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 10×15 inch dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix butter and sugar until it becomes light and fluffy.
Not looking so yummy yet huh?
Add eggs and canned pumpkin to the above mixture.
Looking a little better!!
Add salt, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon (if used) and mix well.
In a separate bowl I add my flour and oats. You can mix them all in one big bowl if you choose, but I found that it seems to be easier to mix the wet and dry mixes separate.
Combine the two mixes into one large bowl. This will take a good bit of stirring to get it all mixed well.
Next, pour the batter into your baking dish. I section mine off by making 4 lines long ways and 5 short ways so I have my portions already figured out before I bake. I just think it makes it easier for when you add your walnuts on top. :o)
Once you add your walnuts, pop this sucker in the oven and bake it for approximately 40 minutes. I have a gas stove so after 30 minutes I usually give it a peak and test it with a toothpick.
Ta-da!!! All done! Doesn’t this look amazing?!
