My pumpkin bread recipe is my favorite fall treat ever!



1.5 cups coconut sugar

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce

1/3 cup water

1/2 of a 15oz can of pumpkin (about 2/3 cup)

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon cloves

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

2 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients — sugar, oil, applesauce and eggs — using a hand mixer or stand mixer; beat until smooth. Add water and beat until well blended. Mix in pumpkin puree until combined.
  4. In medium bowl, combine ginger, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt using a wooden spoon. Add dry ingredients to pumpkin mixture and blend just until all ingredients are mixed. Pour into your prepared pan.
  5. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 30-45 minutes. Don’t over bake!
  6. Cool completely on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.


  • The baking time may vary depending on your oven and if you double the recipe. Be sure to check the doneness at the shorter baking time!
  • I used One Degree Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour.
  • I’ve never tried making this with pumpkin pie spice in place of the individual spices but it would probably work.
  • When I’ve added chocolate chips in the past, I actually prefer it without them. You get more of the pumpkin ginger flavor without the chocolate competing.
  • For the flour, you could likely use 3.5 cups of spelt or whole wheat pastry flour instead of the split ratio. I just never have. You could also use all-purpose flour for the full amount if you don’t have spelt or ww pastry flour on hand.
  • You can sub the coconut sugar for white cane sugar or a mixture of cane sugar and brown sugar.
  • This is also delicious topped with some powdered sugar sifted on top. You could also make a simple glaze using powdered sugar, a small amount of milk and a splash of vanilla to drizzle on top.
