Instructions Checklist

  • Stir together the oil, eggs, and pumpkin in a large bowl. Stir in the white and brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, and stir to combine well. Beat in the flour and 1 1/2 cups of oats.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans, and sprinkle the tops with the remaining 1/4 cup of oats. Press the oats lightly into the top of the batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a loaf comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes before slicing.

Cook's Note

I use a flour-blend of equal parts whole wheat flour, wheat germ and ground oats to add flavor and density in almost all my recipes. It works great in this bread also.

My family loved this bread. If you're looking for the Starbucks type pumpkin bread with more sugar and spice than pumpkin this is NOT for you! This lower sugar bread was moist easy and delicious. We could actually TASTE the pumpkin over the spice which was a nice change. Next time I'm using whole wheat flour and some wheat germ as well as cutting back to 1/3 c oil and 1/3 c applesauce. Will definitely make this again! Read More

I made it for my diabetic husband. I subbed applesauce for the oil. Used whole wheat pastry flour and my own blend of pumpkin pie spice. I halved the recipe & used Splenda for the white sugar but left the brown in. We are enjoying it. Read More

There was a time when I would not have appreciated this bread because it is dense and not extremely sweet. We've been cutting back on sugar and trying to convert to whole grains so this recipe was a good fit for us. We loved it as did the church group I shared it with. I was out of whole wheat flour the last time but I can't wait to try it next time. Read More

8.17.10 ... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/212463/pumpkin-oat-bread/ ... Mine took closer to an hour (plus) to bake. To plump the oats, I let them sit in a half cup of applesauce, quarter cup oil & the pumpkin for a while. I subbed splenda for the white sugar. It is a heavy bread - heavier than most. No "wows," but pretty good. Next day review: 13 year old boy likes it. Surprise. The spices deepened overnight. Not strong still, but more evident. I'll have to play with this one to get it lighter - as in less dense. A couple more days later, the spices intensified so much no one liked it. We threw it away. Definately wouldn't freeze this one. Eat within a few days. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with two very dense unappealing loaves. Also there was very little flavor. I won't be trying this again. Read More

Just go on and make a double batch! I used the flour blend in the notes and cut back on the sugar a little. I made one loaf and used the other half the batter to make 9 muffins with raisins. Very yummy!! Read More

this bread/recipe is awesome. i was looking for a tasty way to get more fiber into my family's diet and this hit the spot. granted there are other (healthier packed with more fiber) recipes out there to try but i was in the mood for some fall comfort food. the bread is very dense and slightly chewy (probably due to the oats)... the flavor is fantastic. my extremely picky fiancé fell in love at first bite and in our house that says a lot.
