Pumpkin Bread (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

by Living Freely Gluten Free

Once the cool breeze kicks in you can official begin to indulge in all things pumpkin. Unless your a food blogger, then you have been eating pumpkin since July gearing up for the fall blog posts. If you make one thing this fall then it needs to be an easy pumpkin bread. I wanted to create a gluten free pumpkin bread recipe that was moist and delicious. This gluten free pumpkin bread recipe is absolutely perfect.

Towards the end of August I am always ready for summer to end. The heat and smoke that has filled the air for the past few summers is enough by August. Especially now that we are living in California again. I want fall! Cool and crisp morning while I sip my coffee made with Pumpkin Spice Coffer Creamer and having a slice of this gluten free pumpkin bread just feels so good.

Fall is hands down my favorite season. Everything about it is great. The clothes, the food, and the fact that I sweat less.

Before blogging I didn’t LOVE pumpkin the way I do now. Now that I have to bake for seasons it has grown on me and I am obsessed. Give me all the pumpkin! Especially this gluten free pumpkin bread recipe.

It is funny how this pumpkin bread recipe came about. I originally wanted to create a coffee cake recipe. However, the texture reminded me of a spice cake. I knew that I could add some spices and pumpkin and it would be the perfect gluten free pumpkin bread recipe.

So now that it is time for all things pumpkin, go ahead and make 2 loaves of this fabulous sweet bread because everyone is going to want some. Happy fall friends!

I want to do this recipe of Gluten Free pumpkin bread.
But I want to know to what kind of Flour can I replace the All purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend???
Maybe Quinoa Flour???

Hi Elena,
Unfortunately you can’t just swap a blend with one type of flour. It will not turn out the same. I would recommend a gluten free all purpose blend, or my grain free all purpose blend for the best results. https://www.livingfreelyglutenfree.com/the-best-gluten-free-all-purpose-flour/ https://www.livingfreelyglutenfree.com/grain-free-all-purpose-flour/

My gluten free all purpose flour blend has xanthan gum in it. Should I still add the 1tsp. of xanthan gum?

livingfreelygf October 23, 2018 - 8:40 pm

No, if your flour already has it then leave the 1 tsp. out. 🙂

Thanks for the recipe! Have you ever done this with flax eggs or other sub?

livingfreelygf December 30, 2018 - 9:04 pm

I have used Bobs red Mill Egg replacer and it worked well.

Buffy October 29, 2019 - 9:10 pm

Looks so wonderful! I’m making it today for my grand kiddos. Would like to know if this works using muffin tins/cupcake papers?

livingfreelygf October 30, 2019 - 1:37 pm

Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner! I am glad they still turned out.

This was amazing it came out so good but I was curious could make this sugar free as well?

livingfreelygf October 11, 2019 - 2:49 pm

Hi Sarah,
I never have tried, but I’m certain you could use coconut sugar. However, the color would come out much darker and it would be less sweet, but I like that. You could probably use a sugar substitute if there is one you prefer. I will have a paleo pumpkin bread up next fall that will be made without refined sugar.

Amazing! So yummy! First time making this and I doubled the recipe in order to make muffins for my grands. My only mistake was using cupcake papers. Next time will just use coconut oil in the tins like I did for the loaf. Also, I used maple flavor instead of vanilla. Mmmm!

livingfreelygf October 30, 2019 - 1:37 pm

That sounds amazing! I love the maple flavor idea! I am so glad you enjoyed these and shared with your grands. Have a great day.
