It’s the season for pumpkin-flavored everything and this Vegan Pumpkin Bread recipe 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.
Why you’ll love this Vegan Pumpkin Bread recipe:
Fall Flavor: We all know pumpkin-flavored anything goes hand-in-hand with fall. It’s so comforting and perfect as the weather gets cooler
Vegan: This bread is made 100% vegan and even your non-vegan friends will love it
Mix It Up: This bread is versatile and can be made with half pumpkin, half banana instead. You can also add chocolate chips or nuts
Flour & Egg Replacement: 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 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.
Pumpkin: Pumpkin is highly nutritious and is so versatile. It can be added into so many recipes, both for baking or cooking. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, antioxidants, full of vitamins that can boost your immunity, low calorie, has potassium, and fiber, and the list goes on and on. I love to roast up fresh pumpkin for salads, or throw puree into baking.

FAQ & Expert Tips:
Swap Out Pumpkin: You can substitute half the pumpkin puree with half mashed banana if you prefer a banana flavor in your bread
Spices: If you don’t love the spice in pumpkin spice you can use as little as you like (or as much as you like). I just like it spicy!
Egg: If you’re not vegan, you can use a regular egg within this recipe versus egg replacement.
Freezer-Friendly: You can freeze this up if you’d like. All you have to do is wrap it up well once it’s cooled and toss it in your freezer. When you’re ready to enjoy, let it thaw, and warm up your slice before eating to make it even better!
