Pumpkin Raisin Bread with Greek Yogurt

Pumpkin Raisin Bread with Greek Yogurt is a delicious and healthier pumpkin bread recipe!

Pumpkin Raisin Bread made with Greek Yogurt
So my garden turned out not so great this year.  I started planting it a bit late and then got bronchitis and a sinus infection before I finished planting.  So my zucchini and squash burned up in the Texas heat before I got any produce off them.

I did get a lot of peas, beans, onions, and some carrots and salad greens and one very surprising thing: PUMPKINS. You see pumpkins were surprising because I didn’t even plant pumpkins.  I had thrown a couple out into the compost pile last fall and surprise, surprise massive pumpkin vines sprouted up and took over a large section of my garden.  What a wonderful unexpected blessing.

I was able to harvest several pumpkins before I went to Idaho. I cook the pumpkin, pureed it (find out how to make pumpkin puree here), and put it in the freezer.  Knowing it would be there for fall when I got back.

The pumpkin raisin bread was the first recipe I’ve tried with the pumpkin and it turned out yummy.  I still have some puree in the fridge that I need used up soon; so look for another pumpkin recipe coming next week! (or the week after)

Yield: 12 slices

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup raisins, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt and spices) and set aside.
  3. In a stand mixer (or use whatever you have), combine sugars, eggs, pumpkin and yogurt and mix until combined.
  4. Add the flour mixture a third at a time; mixing after each addition.
  5. Fold in raisin by hand and pour into a prepared loaf pan.
  6. Bake for 50-55 minutes.

{Note: I don’t know if it was my goofy oven or just the bread in general but the edge on my bread started to get really dark.  So I covered the edges on my bread with foil to keep them from being too dark.  So you might want to check your bread after about 40 mins.}
Hope you enjoy!  Have any suggestions on what I should make next with my pumpkin?
