Amazing Vegan Pumpkin Bread


This bread is soooo moist and just sweet enough. Delicious with coffee. These would taste amazing with a streusel top or cream cheese frosting, if you wanted it even sweeter, but I think it stands alone amazingly well.

2 loaves


  • cooking spray

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal

  • 1 cup applesauce

  • 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar

  • cup vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup almond milk

  • 2 cups pumpkin puree

  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1 dash ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 loaf pans with cooking spray.

  2. Combine water and flaxseed meal in a small bowl. Let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir flaxseed mixture, applesauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and almond milk together in a bowl. Add pumpkin puree.

  4. Mix whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, cardamom, cloves, and nutmeg together in a bowl. Blend in applesauce mixture. Divide batter between loaf pans.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack.

Cook's Notes:

Core and seed 2 apples and process with a dash of water in a food processor to make applesauce if preferred.

Substitute 1 cup agave syrup for the brown sugar if desired.

Substitute 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon if desired.

Add walnuts if desired.

This recipe makes 24 muffins. Bake for 15 to 25 minutes.
