There has been this recipe for a 500 calorie pumpkin bread loaf floating around pinterest and I have wanted to try it for so long! Tonight I stopped at the store and grabbed most of the ingredients but decided to change it up! Putting it in the form of muffins makes it easier to eat in proportion instead of picking at the entire loaf until it’s gone.
