Vegan Pumpkin Bread

I love all things pumpkin.

Pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin flavored coffee, .. and lately I have been craving pumpkin bread.

Since I have been experimenting with Vegan baking I decided to attempt a Vegan Pumpkin Bread recipe. And a whole wheat bread would be even better.

I couldn't find any recipes I really liked so I kind of combined a few and here's what I came up with:

3.5 cups flour (I used 2.5 cups whole wheat, and 1 cup all purpose)
1/2 cup sugar
2 TB baking powder
1/2 ts salt
cinnamon (~ 2 TB)
pumpkin pie spice (~ 1/2 TB)
all spice (1 ts)
1 cup apple sauce or vegetable oil (I used 1/2 and 1/2)
2.5 cups canned pumpkin
~2/3 cup water
4 TB ground flax seeds

Mix flour, sugar, powder, and spices. Then add everything else. Mix well. if it is too watery add more flour.

Put into a greased baking pan/ bread pan. (this is too much batter to fit all into one bread pan.)

Bake for about 50 minutes at 350*

You could also add some chocolate chips to the batter for some delightful chocolate pumpkin bread.



  1. pumpkin anything wins
    this looks delicious!!
    i can't make it to nutrition club this wednesday and that upsets me-sounds like its going to be a good one!
