Gluten-Free Pumpkin bread is great any time of the year! This easy, quick, bread uses only ten ingredients and is tender and delightfully flavorful.
Do you like to bake with wholesome products? I love using stable flour blends, and blends that are whole grain and healthy for my family. We’ve been using RYZE Gluten-Free Flour recently and love the flavors and textures that RYZE adds to recipes.
We’ve found it to be a 1-to-1 in a lot of our regular recipes. Like this Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread for example. If you start with a good flour blend and you add in healthy ingredients like pumpkin and spices you’ll end up with an amazing and healthy baked treat.
Do I have to use RYZE flour in this recipe?
No. I’ve used other blends like Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten free flour blend in this recipe. It also works extremely well, and yields amazing results.
This pumpkin bread was a huge hit with my family and friends. Everyone was eager to test taste it as the wonderful smells filled our home. The flavor and textures were exactly what we expected in a good pumpkin bread and the loaf stayed moist for days.
Some of us ate it plain while others dressed it up with dairy-free butter and honey – divine. After the butter and honey taste test, we moved into more of a savory path and spread some almond butter on it, followed shortly by sunflower seed butter. I’m happy to report it was wonderful plain and delicious with spreads.
Can I make gluten-free vegan pumpkin bread?
While I haven’t tested this recipe with egg substitutes to make it vegan, it is dairy-free. If you need egg free or vegan Beaming Baker has an incredible Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Bread. I will test this gluten-free pumpkin bread recipe with flax egg and when I do I’ll come back and update this post.
Pumpkin is such a wonderful squash. It has tons of health benefits and makes almost anything taste better. I love adding pumpkin to my baked goods and smoothies and will sneak it into other dishes when no one is looking.
One of the many things I love about this particular pumpkin bread is that it is light, moist (but not wet), and not too sugary. Some quick breads leave a sugar-film in your mouth, but not this one.
What nuts go well with gluten-free pumpkin bread?
This recipe doesn’t call for nuts but I LOVE adding pumpkin seeds to the top, or the occasional 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts. The mild flavors of each of these nuts add a delicious touch without taking away from the pumpkin.
If you are a banana bread lover like me, you won’t want to miss this Gluten Free Pumpkin Banana Bread from What the Fork Food blog. Demeter from Beaming Baker has a recipe for Gluten Free Maple Pecan Pumpkin Muffins that bring all the flavors of fall together. Also, this Healthy Sweet Potato bread is another great fall quick bread option.
