Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

Hello and happy holidays! I’m hoping to get this blog post out there before your final holiday grocery store trip. If you or a friend/family member is gluten-free like me then this recipe will be right up your alley. This pumpkin bread is dense, moist, sweet and filled with all the warm fall spices. One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it makes your house smell AMAZING and honestly you would never know its gluten-free. A good friend of mine who is a naturopath was given this recipe by one of her patients, she shared it with me, and now I’m sharing it with you! Please feel free to share it as well…it’s that good!


The Perfect Gluten-free Pumpkin Bread

Butter Mixture:

Beat: 6 tablespoons of room-temp butter until fluffy

Add: 3/4 cup white sugar & 1 cup dark brown sugar - beat until combined

Beat in: 2 eggs, one at a time

Beat in: 1 cup pumpkin puree

Dry Ingredients - Separate Bowl:

1 1/2 cups brown rice flour

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Wet Ingredients - Separate Bowl:

1 cup water or milk (I use milk or even watered-down half-n-half in a pinch)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°

Add to butter mixture 1/3 of dry ingredients and beat just until combined, then add 1/2 of the wet ingredients, beating again just until combined, alternate back and forth between dry and wet until everything is incorporated. After all ingredients have been mixed together I usually stir in about a half a bag of mini dark chocolate chips (or you could use walnuts, raisins, etc.).

Bake in two small loaf pans (lightly sprayed with non-stick oil of your choice) for 45-50 minutes. Check doneness after 40 minutes with a toothpick. When the toothpick comes out with some moist crumbs sticking to it, but nothing wet - it’s done! Let cool for one hour and enjoy!


If you try out this recipe, I would LOVE to know what you think! This has been my go-to holiday treat for years and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
