It’s the season for pumpkin-flavored everything and this Vegan Pumpkin Bread does not disappoint. If you’re looking for something different to make other than banana bread, this is a great alternative. It’s good on its own, warmed up, with butter, or even with your favorite jam. The perfect Halloween treat that the whole family can enjoy.

My baking sidekick

For this recipe, I used a handful of Bob’s Red Mill products because they are my favorite and I can always trust their quality ingredients to make great recipes like this one. I used their All-Purpose Flour, Almond Flour, and Egg Replacement. I usually have all these ingredients on-hand in my kitchen for baking. 

Their All-Purpose Flour is milled with the highest quality wheat in North America, their Almond Flour is a great gluten-free alternative and made with ground whole almonds, skins and all, for maximum health benefits. Then lastly, their egg replacement is so handy for us vegans. It’s super easy to use in the replacement of any egg in a recipe. I can always count on Bob’s for clean ingredients to use in my recipes.

This Vegan Pumpkin Bread is perfect for fall. It’s easy-to-make, vegan-friendly, and great when paired with coffee or tea.



2  cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ginger spice

dash of cloves spice

1 cup pumpkin puree

1/3 cup butter or coconut oil, room temperature, then melted

1 cup brown sugar

2 egg replacements

1 tsp vanilla

6 tbsp. almond milk


Preheat oven to 350F and line a bread tin with parchment paper and lightly grease with cooking oil spray.

Into a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

In a medium-sized bowl add in the pumpkin puree and whisk in the melted oil or butter, brown sugar, egg replacement, vanilla and almond milk. Whisk just till combined.

Add the flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir with a wooden spoon to well combine.

Cool for 5 minutes in the bread tin and remove and cool completely on wire rack.  Serve with vegan butter!

Hi Maria,

This sounds delicious! Pumpkin puree isn’t something that’s easy to come by here in the UK, could I simply roast a pumpkin and make my own puree (cooled) as a substitute here?

Yes! That is exactly what you can do hun!

Rachel Huntchinsin

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thank you so much for the love, Rachel!

Natasha Bianco

This recipe was seriously off the hook!

Maria Koutsogiannis



This looks perfect to use up some of the pumpkin in my fridge from thanksgiving!

Maria Koutsogiannis

This bread is actually going to blow your mind Lauren!


Thank you for this recipe, Maria!

Maria Koutsogiannis

You are so welcome, Dimitra!

Nova Anwell

Have you tried making this gluten free at all?

Maria Koutsogiannis

Sorry hun, it’s only been tested as stated in the recipe but it might work with the Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 Gluten Free Flour


I find that pumpkin bread recipes often turn out too dense and gummy. This is not THAT. This pumpkin bread is super fluffy and the perfect texture. The brown sugar adds the perfect touch of molasses. I omitted the nutmeg and cloves and used a little pumpkin spice in it’s place and I may have added a bit more cinnamon and ginger than it calls for but it was amazing and had a great warmth from all the spices. This reminds me exactly of a delicious pumpkin loaf slice you would get at a cafe! I can’t wait to make this around the holidays!

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thank you so much for this wonderful review Hannah! This makes me so happy hun!

Gabrielle MacWilliam

A great recipe if you are looking for the sturdiness of a Starbucks loaf but the flavour of homemade. I made some substituions based on what I had on hand and they worked out perfect!

Maria Koutsogiannis



I wanted to bake something last night at 7pm. Something simple, fall flavoured, vegan, and DELICIOUS with the ingredients I had on hand. Thankfully, I remembered I had just come across this recipe! It checked ALL the boxes. I should have made two because it’s already half gone! This ones a winner! Thanks for creating, Maria.

Maria Koutsogiannis

Thank you so much for the love, Lauren! So glad you loved this recipe as much as we do!
