Prep time: 15 minutes

Baking: 65 minutes

Ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour (or white whole wheat flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 5 tbsp Soy Greek yogurt
  • ½ scoop (or more) Essablend vegan vanilla protein powder


  • Method:

    1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius. Line a 30cm long loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
    2. In a saucepan over medium heat, brown the butter until it turns a golden amber color and gives off a nutty aroma. Transfer the browned butter to a medium bowl to cool for 5-10 minutes.
    3. In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, pure maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. Add the cooled browned butter and whisk until smooth.
    4. In a separate large bowl, combine whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.
    5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a spatula.
    6. Bake for 50-65 minutes until a tester comes out clean or with just a few crumbs attached.
    7. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.
    8. In a small bowl, mix together the Soy Greek yoghourt and vegan protein powder until well combined.
    9. Once the bread is completely cool, spread the yoghourt frosting evenly over the top using a spatula.
    10. Cut the pumpkin bread into slices and serve, savouring the delightful combination of nutty browned butter, sweet pumpkin, and the protein boost from the yoghourt frosting.
