2 9x5-inch loaves


  • 9 tablespoons water

  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal

  • cooking spray

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ¾ cup avocado oil

  • 1 (16 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin puree

  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1 tablespoon molasses

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Stir water and flaxseed meal together in a small bowl until well combined. Place in the refrigerator until flax "eggs" have thickened, about 15 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray two 9x5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

  3. Combine sugar and avocado oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until blended. Mix in flax "eggs," pumpkin puree, applesauce, molasses, and vanilla extract.

  4. Sift all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, and cloves together in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in 2 batches, stirring to combine after each addition. Divide batter between the prepared loaf pans.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Do not substitute pie filling for the pumpkin puree.
