Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

“Pumpkin everything” is really getting to me this season, and my Starbucks copycat pumpkin scones seem to have just been the beginning of my pumpkin baking adventures :) . Here I present to you a scrumptious, fresh-out-of-the-oven (can you see the smoke rising from the still warm bread in the pictures?) vegan and gluten-free pumpkin bread!

Loaded with the goodness of add-ins such as raisins, cashews, pumpkin seeds, and some chopped dark chocolate, and spiced to perfection, this bread was all gone in one sitting this afternoon (no, I didn’t eat it all myself, but shared it with friends as one of course should with such special treats! ;) ) and I couldn’t wait to share it with you on here too, my virtual friends. Enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 55 mins
Yield: 1 loaf


  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree (or 2 cups drained pureed cooked pumpkin)
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ⅔ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • dash of salt
  • 2 cups all purpose gluten-free flour mix (I used Bob’s Red Mill. Alternatively, you can use 1 ½ cups rice flour + ½ cup potato or tapioca starch)
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 ½ tsp GF baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp guar gum
  • 1 cup of add-ins of your choice (I used some raisins, cashews, pumpkin seeds, and a bit of a chopped up dark chocolate bar. I imagine walnuts, chocolate chips, or cranberries would work great too)
  • 1 tbsp extra pumpkin seeds for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a bread loaf pan with some parchment paper, or oil and set aside.
  • Place pumpkin puree, oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, spices, and salt into a large mixing bowl and blend together using an immersion blender. Note: if you don’t have an immersion blender, blend these ingredients together in a blender and then transfer into a mixing bowl).
  • Add in all remaining ingredients, except for the add-ins and extra pumpkin seeds, and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon to combine. Fold in the add-ins.
  • Transfer the mixture into your bread loaf pan and smooth out. Gently tap the pan on the counter a few times to eliminate any air bubbles. Sprinkle with pumpkin seeds on top.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for about 55 mins. to an hour. Don’t forget to enjoy the aromas filling your house while it’s baking ;). Test with a wooden skewer down the center to make sure it comes out dry. Once baked, transfer onto a cooling rack and let the pumpkin bread cook for at least 10 minutes prior to serving. Enjoy!
