Vegan Pumpkin Bread Recipe. Easy pumpkin loaf with pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, walnuts and chocolate chips. Use pumpkin seeds, currants for variation. Vegan Fall Recipe.
Easy One Bowl Pumpkin Loaf today before we start up with the Holiday Menu plans. Soft, full of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, hearty and delicious. 15 minutes and in the oven. Bake until done. The hardest part is waiting for the loaf to cool. The loaf tastes best after a few hours. This loaf is based off my 1 bowl pumpkin cream cheese muffins. Why change something when it works.
Add nuts of choice, dried fruit, cranberries or chocolate chips to the batter. Top with nuts, pumpkin seeds, chocolate chips or a streusel of choice! Serve with hot Pumpkin spice Caramel Latte or other hot drinks of choice. Use sweet potato or butternut squash puree for variation.
