Vegan Pumpkin Bread Recipe
This easy vegan pumpkin bread recipe is so simple and irresistible!
It has a perfectly spiced crumb that is moist, soft and filled with comforting flavors of fall.
It’s also ready to go into the oven within 15 minutes and makes your home smell amazing while it bakes.
You’re going to love this quick and easy recipe!Pumpkin breads are always a regular treat in my home during the fall season, and well into the winter season as well!
As soon as pumpkin puree starts popping up in all the grocery stores, I stock up and can’t wait to make this bread.
It’s so simple to make yet has so much flavor – it’s also a hit when serving guests!
I absolutely love pumpkin as a flavor in baking; it’s even delicious for breakfast like with my Vegan Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal or my Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Banana Bread!
Easy Homemade Pumpkin Spice Bread
This bread not only packs in plenty of comforting spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
It also has hints of vanilla and brown sugar that add even more richness and depth to the overall flavor.
Vegan pumpkin bread is also incredibly fuss-free to make because the pumpkin acts as an egg while baking.
It helps to add moisture and also binds all the ingredients together, all while adding that cozy pumpkin flavor!
I love the bright orange color the pumpkin, brown sugar and spices give to this bread.
It’s so festive and inviting!
I also love adding in dairy-free chocolate chips or walnuts to the batter, depending on who I’m serving it too and what I’m craving.
You can also add pumpkin seeds to the top of the bread before baking for a little crunch on top, but it’s always perfect on its own too.

How to Make Vegan Pumpkin Bread
Mixing the Ingredients
To make this easy vegan pumpkin bread, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.
Then in another bowl mix all the wet ingredients, including the brown sugar, until smooth.
I like to whisk both of these separately to save some time and help the wet ingredients get nice and smooth.
Finishing the Bread Batter
Now, add all the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until combined.
You want all the flour clumps to be smoothed out, and the batter to have a nice consistency with no lumps.
However, once you get to that point stop mixing, you don’t want to over mix either.
Baking Pumpkin Bread
Finally, add all the batter to a lightly oiled loaf pan.
Smooth out the top evenly and then pop into the oven for 70-80 minutes.
Check it with a couple toothpicks to make sure they come out clean, and then let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan.
After 10 minutes you can transfer the loaf to a cooling rack to finish cooling down.
It should flip right out onto the cooling rack if it’s been oiled before baking, then just carefully flip it over.
You can dig in immediately after this, but it is a bit easier to slice once it’s a bit cooler to touch!
