How to make delicious gluten-free pumpkin bread for the holidays

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and even if families can’t be together you can still appreciate good food. This pumpkin bread recipe is not only gluten-free but is extremely easy to make. 

The ingredients that you will need is;

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin, be sure it isńt the pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½  baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups of gluten-free flour
  • Check the flour if it has xanthan gum in it, if not you need ¼ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • Optional – Creme cheese frosting, Here’s a link to make your own; 


When baking my bread I decided to make five smaller loaves, to do this I just tripled the recipe. In case you run out of pumpkin pie spice as I did you can make it with these spices you most likely already have;

  • 3 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons of ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons of nutmeg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of ground allspice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of ground cloves

Mix that all together well, then you have homemade pumpkin pie spice.

Whether you already have pumpkin pie spice or you just made your own here are the instructions for the pumpkin bread;

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 Fahrenheit
  2. Get a large bowl and add in the pumpkin, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix them together until fully combined.
  3. Then you add in both the brown and granulated sugar and vanilla extract. The batter should be really smooth (and possibly very liquidy)
  4. Add in your flour, the xanthan gum if needed, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon. Mix all the ingredients together and expect it to be thick. I would suggest using a hand mixer if you haven’t been already.
  5. Grease your loaf pans then pour or spoon the batter in.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Mine cooked for about 63 minutes.
  7. Wait for it to cool and cut into it. An optional step is to spread creme cheese frosting on the top of the loaf, or on top of your piece as I did.
