Are you ready for the best pumpkin bread recipe? There are a lot of gluten free pumpkin recipes out there, but this one takes the cake!
Pumpkin bread recipes are notoriously high in sugar, especially white sugar. As with all my gluten free recipes, I never use regular white sugar. I like to use cane sugar instead. Still not as good as sugar free, but way better than white sugar.
Speaking of sugar free, if you are looking for sugar free, check out this low carb pumpkin bread recipe.
I don’t know about you, but I love pumpkin year round. I mean, why save it for Fall? Pumpkin is not only delicious, but it has numerous health benefits.

What Can You Eat With Pumpkin Bread?
What CAN’T you eat with pumpkin bread? Right?
My favorite thing to eat on pumpkin bread is good old fashioned butter!
Another fun way to eat it is to make a cream cheese frosting and layer it on.
Chocolate syrup? Hmmm…..
You can also sprinkle chocolate chips on top. If you decide to do this, just sprinkle them on about 5 minutes before cooking time is done to let them settle in. SOO GOOD!
What is a Good Flour to Use to Make Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread?
I like to use Bob Red Mill’s Gluten Free 1 to 1 baking flour.
I find that it works REALLY well, especially for baking. In my opinion, it is because of the xanthan gum in the flour. Many people neglect the fact that when you remove gluten, you need to replace it with something and xanthan gum is a good replacement.
How to Store Pumpkin Bread
The best way to store this gluten free bread is in an airtight container and refrigerator.
How Long is Pumpkin Bread Good For?
If properly stored, it can last up to a week in the fridge. I recommend keeping it chilled.
How Do You Know When Pumpkin Bread is Done?
The best way to check if pumpkin bread is done, is to insert a toothpick or a knife into the center of the pumpkin loaf. If it comes out clean, then it is normally done!
Pumpkin bread usually has a cracked top naturally so you can simply insert the knife or toothpick into one of those cracks.
