Gluten-free Pumpkin Bread Recipe

Now, I know I probably should wait till the fall to post this recipe, but it is so good I want to be sure to get it up and available to people (and, besides, this blog functions kind of like my personal recipe book, so if I want to be sure to find it in the future, I need to post it here!)

So how did I end up creating a pumpkin bread recipe during the first week of June? I get pretty serious about spring cleaning at my house and I go through pretty much everything, including my pantry. I found a number of cans of pumpkin puree left from the holidays and thought I really should find a great way to use them up without waiting for Thanksgiving. I’ve made pumpkin biscuits a fair bit, but I wanted a pumpkin cookie or pumpkin bread and this is the recipe that came as a result.

It’s actually a very mild pumpkin bread. The pumpkin doesn’t come through as strongly as the spice does and the spice isn’t overpowering either. I tried it plain and with walnuts. I think it would also be great with raisins or chocolate chips even.

And you’ll notice the recipe uses a full can of pumpkin. Most pumpkin-related recipes ask for a partial can- but that drives me nuts! What am I going to do with the rest of the can? So, one of the main goals with this recipe (0ther than great flavor and texture and minimal oil and sweetener) was to use a full can of pumpkin.


AS ALWAYS, you can count on my recipes being incredibly wholesome, exceptionally tasty and as simple and economical as possible.  They feature only plant-based whole foods and avoid gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, sugar and any refined/processed ingredients.  If this sounds good to you, check out some of my books at Simply Natural Health or download my immensely popular ebook Good and Easy Eats for just $4.99!
