This incredibly moist pumpkin bread is made without any butter or oil. It is soft, not too sweet, and packed with pumpkin flavor and spice.


  • 1&1/2 cups (190g) all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup (243g) canned pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup (50g) chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9×5″ loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the flour, baking soda, pumpkin spice and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, yogurt and pumpkin.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan and sprinkle with chopped walnuts if desired.
