What says “fall” better than pumpkin bread?  Warm, spicy pumpkin bread, fresh from the oven and covered in butter….  Yummy!  Last year I posted a gluten-free version, as we were gluten-free at that time (it’s also dairy-free).  This year I’m posting a “regular” version for those of you who are not gluten- or dairy-free.  You can use your frozen pumpkin puree in it, if you have some!

(And…psst…if you’re looking for a “regular,” sweeter version that’s dairy-free but not gluten-free, you can check out Katie at Kitchen Stewardship’s One Bowl Pumpkin Muffins!)


  • 2 c. sprouted flour
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. cardamom
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ c. butter
  • ½ c. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. raw honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c. pumpkin puree


In a medium bowl, combine flour, sea salt, baking soda, and spices.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, cream butter (softened), syrup, and honey.  Add egg and pumpkin and stir until completely combined.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir gently just until moistened.  Bake in a loaf pan, as muffins, or as a small cake (8×8 square) for 25 – 50 minutes, depending on size (least for muffins, longest for loaf pan).  Serve warm.

And while we’re talking recipes…there are a ton of others in my brand-new In the Kitchen: Real Food Basics!  If you haven’t checked it out, you definitely need to.  There’s something that will please everyone there!

  1. Wow. That looks really good! I'm planning to make a bunch of pumpkin puree next week and freeze it, so I will definitely try this one out.


  2. I just finished reading your entire blog! After spending 3 nights reading, I just had to tell you how much I have enjoyed it. I feel you are right on with so many things! I love the encouragement and the information I have gleaned. We are just starting out our real foods journey. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge and info! I will be buying your ebook just as soon as hubby gets paid! Thanks again!!


  3. Yummy! The spices were great. I put in 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin because the batter didn't taste "pumpkiny" enough to me. So now the flavor is wonderful though it's too dense for me (I should probably blame myself for that because I added the extra pumpkin, haha). I will definitely try tweaking this.


  4. I am making this today…one for me and one to go along with a postpartum meal I am bringing to a friend. Can't wait to taste it!!


  5. This was so good that I made one loaf, tasted it, and made a second loaf right away! The flavor and texture were both perfect. Thanks for a new favorite recipe!
