Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Very good. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/4 cup and increased the cranberries to 2 cups. I will make it again and try with 1cup sugar. 2 cups is way too much.

I just made this delicious recipe yesterday. I am prediadetic so I think it is overly sweet with the two cups of sugar. Next time I will use Splenda sugar blend so it wifi be a healthier treat.

Was wondering, can we substitute fresh pumpkin for canned? Will this lower the sodium level? Dietitian comment: You can substitute but sodium will be about the same since pureed canned pumpkin does not contain added salt. However the canned pumpkin pie mix does contain quite a bit of sodium.

I have made this bread twice. I reduced the sugar to one cup and added 1 tsp of vanilla. I also used frozen cranberries. Delicious and even those friends and family without diabetes and kidney disease loved this bread.

Actually, I have read recently that Pumpkin is your best bet such as in pies. Pumpkin has the lowest amt of starch, than pecan,cherry pies etc. My mother is a diabetic w/non dialysis kidney disease. I barely found out abt this site, and so far alot of these recipes are wonderful. But I would rather go through measuring, substituting if that means she can enjoy the holidays, food, treats, etc. Remember its not what you consume its how much of it goes in. I actually last year made my mother a carrot cake and substituted alot of things w/diabetic friendly ingredients and the cake was fabulous. She couldnt even tell. (ex: if ingredient states "vegetable oil, use canola"...."sugar, use splenda") you know things like that. I hope you do find the recipes you are looking for. Much Luv 2 u all here.

Sounds yummy, but the nutrition count isn't very helpful if I still have to look up the measurements to change away from sugar and white flour because they are bad for diabetics. (Pumpkin is already stretching it, with high glycemic rating, so something else has to give!) I want the recipes to save time and be already OK for diabetics as well as kidney patients.
