Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe

September 26, 2023

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Pumpkin Bread (and it still tastes great!)

This recipe is my go-to for easy, and, relatively healthy, pumpkin bread. I prefer without chocolate chips but of course my kids (and husband) prefer with chocolate chips, so we’ve been adding them in lately. This morning I ate a slice along with a serving of cottage cheese and it was pretty great. You could also use a spread, like peanut or almond butter, to add a little extra protein and fat. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do! :) 



Prep Time: 5 min (or, if you’re working with kids, up to 20 min ;)

Cook Time: 50-60 min

Yield: 8 slices


  • 1 15-ounce can organic unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar 
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup liquid coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ - 1 c chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease up a glass bread dish (I brush coconut oil all over it with a pastry brush)
  • In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, baking soda and baking powder
  • Add in the sugar, vanilla, and mix
  • Beat in the eggs and oil until smooth
  • Add in the flour and spices then mix until smooth (don’t overmix)
  • Fold in the chocolate chips if using them
  • Add batter to pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until fully cooked
  • Allow the bread to cool then slice and enjoy!
