These Pumpkin Bread Bites are not too sweet and will remind you of pumpkin bread. For when you just want a bite and not a whole slice. They also freeze well, so go ahead and make a batch and pop them in the freezer.
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup all purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp ground ginger
⅛ tsp ground cloves
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup powdered sugar
1½ Tbsp milk
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, the all purpose flour, baking powder, salt and spices.
Cream together the butter and sugar
Add the eggs one at a time and beat until well incorporated
Stir in the vanilla and pumpkin
Mix in the flour mixture until just combined
Stir in the nuts and cranberries.
Drop by tablespoon full on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 14 minutes.
While the bread bites cool, whisk together the powdered sugar and the milk to form a glaze.
Dip the tops of the bread bites in the glaze and let them air dry
