This vegan pumpkin spice bread is THE perfect fall treat! I made these mini loaves for breakfast, and our kitchen was instantly filled with fall vibes. Its October here in Massachusetts, and all the leaves are turning… making it the perfect time to bake up some pumpkin bread. This is the BEST pumpkin bread recipe: its sweet (but not too sweet) and you can even add a crumble topping to make these loaves a little #extra.

Pumpkin is one of my favorite vegetables to eat – I love eating it all year ’round!  I used to stock up every fall on canned pumpkin, I remember once I bought about 20 cans from Aldi’s and the person at the register probably thought I was crazy.  Now, I can find it all year around, Whole Foods has a fantastic canned pumpkin available every month of the year.

This Vegan Pumpkin Bread Recipe Is Made With:

  • Canned Pumpkin: my favorite!  You can also use homemade baked pumpkin if you are ambitious enough, but I find that canned pumpkin is the best.  Make sure it’s 100% pure canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie mix… the mix would make the bread too sweet.
  • Apple Sauce: to moisten the bread without using eggs!
  • Flour: I used all purpose but you can also use a whole wheat flour or a 1:1 gluten free baking mix.
  • Sugar: white granulated for this recipe
  • Vegetable Oil: for a velvety texture
  • Spices: cinnamon, vanilla extract
  • Baking Soda & Baking Powder: to ensure the bread has a nice rise and fluffy texture
  • (Optional) Crumble Topping: made with sugar, cinnamon, butter, and flour.  Definitely optional, but highly recommended.  The crumble topping gave this bread a fantastic crunch and sweetness.

How Do I Make This Vegan Pumpkin Spice Bread?

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (except the crumble topping, mix those in a spearate bowl).
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Pour batter evenly into 6 mini loaf pans *(see below for other baking options).
  4. Top with crumble mixture if using.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes until pumpkin bread is cooked all the way through.  To check, stick a toothpick in the center of the loaf, and if it comes out clean, then the pumpkin bread is ready. If not, cook for another 5 minutes and repeat the toothpick test until it comes out clean.  Enjoy!

Baking Pans & Times

  • I used 6 mini loaf pans for this recipe, the batter made enoug for 6 perfect sized loaves – 45 minutes in the oven was enough for these.  If you are using 12 muffin/cupcake tins, 45 minutes should be perfect.
  • For 2 regular-sized loaf pans or a 9×9 baking dish, cook for 50 minutes, and check with a toothpick to make sure they are cooked through. If not, put them back in the oven and check every 5 minutes until they are cooked.

Dietary Modifications

  • This recipe is naturally vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, and egg free!
  • To make this gluten free, substitute a 1:1 baking mix for the all purpose flour.
  • To make this refined sugar free, replace the sugar with a natural substitute. I’ve only tested this recipe with granulated sugar, so substitute the amount you typically would of any other sweetener.
