The perfect balance of pumpkin’s earthy richness and the sweetness of maple syrup, combined with a hint of creamy coconut and the comforting aroma of pumpkin pie spice, makes this gluten-free delight a must-try.
With a moist and tender crumb, you won’t believe it’s gluten-free! Plus, if you’re feeling extra fancy, sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top for a delightful crunch.
This is a great bread to make for Halloween. It can be served warm with mashed banana and honey, eaten just as it is, or accompany a bowl of soup!

- Place the diced pumpkin in steamer or colander set over a pan of boiling water. Cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes until tender. Remove and cool completely.
- Place the pumpkin in a blender and blend until smooth. Measure out 1 cup of pumpkin puree and freeze the rest for other recipes (baby foods, dog foods, cakes etc..)
- Preheat oven to 180C. Grease an 8-9inch loaf pan with coconut oil or line with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a medium-sized bowl, add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla. Whisk until uniform.
- In another bowl, whisk together the oat flour, brown rice flour, baking powder, and spices. Whisk until uniform and lump-free.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Stir until evenly mixed. The batter should be very thick but pourable.
- Pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and top with pumpkin seeds and salt flakes (if using). Bake for 50-60 minutes, until browned on top and toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Cool for 5 minutes in the baking pan, then gently remove and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Slice and serve.
