Fluffy, Gluten-Free, and made with only 8 ingredients, this Vegan Pumpkin Bread is sure to be a hit! Perfect for a delicious Fall breakfast, snack, or healthy dessert.
It’s Fall, y’all. Which mostly means that it’s now socially acceptable to include Pumpkin in anything and everything. This Fluffy Vegan Pumpkin Bread is Gluten Free, Oil Free, and made with only 8 plant-based ingredients. Shall we?
To be honest, I am very excited for Fall this year. It’s always been my favorite season, even though my birthday is in the Summer. There’s just something magical about those crisp leaves, fresh air, and changing leaves that makes my heart skip a beat.
I just moved to the Pacific Northwest from Miami, so this will be my first proper Fall in 2 years! Needless to say, I will be drinking allll the mugs of tea + making all the Pumpkin things this year. Starting with this delicious Vegan Pumpkin Bread!
This Pumpkin Bread is a perfect balance of fluffy, moist, and subtly sweet. I mean…can we LOOK at that fluff factor?! It’s PACKED with Pumpkin Pie Spice too, of course. I’m pretty sure we all know that’s a given at this point 😉
I’ve always been a fan of sweet breads, and this Vegan Pumpkin Bread is certainly no exception. They’re easy to make, a perfect afternoon snack, and they freeze well too! I always had a loaf of Banana Bread in my kitchen in college for snacking emergencies…and I’m pretty sure that if this Pumpkin Bread recipe existed back then, it would have been replaced.
With crisp edges and a soft and chewy inside, this Fall-themed sweet bread is amazing on it’s own! You can also dress it up with fun spreads and toppings, if you want to get fancy. I personally love to toast a slice and spread a thick dollop of Nut Butter on top! Now that I think of it, it would be great with some Apple Butter or Maple Butter too…
A Few Final Thoughts:
- Nut Allergy? No worries! Simply replace the Nut Butter in this recipe with Sunflower, Coconut, or Pumpkin Seed Butter
- The batter for this Pumpkin Bread will look very thick…but no worries! It’ll fluff right up after you put it in the oven.
- Ever wonder why all these recipes say to “let cool before slicing”? Me too, so I looked it up! Apparently it has to do with the way the “starch retrogrades“. Basically, even the smallest amount of pressure on the loaf (aka a knife) can deflate the bread and cause it to be less fluffy! So please, let cool before slicing.
