I read this on the hungry girl site this week, and am eating it right out of the oven. I made as written, other than to divide it into 8 muffins (bake 35 minutes). They look great, but they taste a bit like "diet food." I know I'm expecting a lot, but compared to other HG recipes I've tried... I wonder if they'll taste better when completely cool. If I notice a change, I'll update. Thanks for posting! **UPDATE** OK-- they're better this morning after a night in the fridge and a few seconds in the microwave. I keep telling myself that something SO low fat can't compare to regular pumpkin bread. Since I can't add half a star, I'll leave my rating the same.** Second UPDATE** I made another batch, and forgot them in the oven. They baked about 15-20 minutes longer than recommended, and I just knew they'd be burnt. But, they taste even better! Still moist, but not as soggy as my first batch. I'll give it another star with a longer bake time.

Really good! I substituted raisins for the dried cranberries. It was a HIT and didn't last long. It is nice year round but esspecially during the holidays with all those other high fat breads going around! You can have this and not feel guilty! Love it!

Just made this and it's good. It has a denser consistency then the pumpkin bread you would normally make (you know the one with 1 cup of oil, 3 cups of sugar, etc.), but considering this is only 2 WW points for a thick piece, I'll take it. I was going to leave out the craisins, but they are really wonderful in this bread and I'm so glad I added them. I'll see if it gets even better after cooling. (I ate a piece within 3 min of it coming out of the oven! lol) I love that I am able to enjoy pumpkin bread, not feel guilty and stay within my points for the day. I didn't have pumpkin spice, so I added instead 1/8 tsp gound cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I will definitely make this again.
