I’m still on my pumpkin kick, and this time I made pumpkin bread! It’s super soft, high in protein, and fills the whole house with the warm spices of fall.

Not only was the texture spot-on, but I took Amy’s advice from Simply Sugar & Gluten Free and added orange zest and orange juice to the batter. It really is the magic ingredient that brightens the flavor and makes this bread special.

I think this is hands down our favorite bread (even though my banana bread was pretty good, hummm….). It went faster than anything else I’ve ever made, and I cook A LOT – the whole loaf was gone by the end of the day! Not only that, but it was really simple to make:

You just whisk the dry ingredients together, stir in all the remaining ingredients, then pour the batter into a greased 8 x 4 inch pan 🙂 See, simple!!!

    Does this have the same texture as your banana bread? I do like the banana bread texture moreso than every other grain free banana bread I’ve ever made.

    This pumpkin bread turned out so delicious! My husband loved it the next day toasted with whipped cream cheese. (We eat dairy.) Thank you so much for sharing your spectacular creations.

    I miss the pumpkin chocolate chip bread I grew up with, but this looks amazing. I will of course be adding some dairy free chocolate chips to the one I make. Can’t wait!

      Hi Aimee!

      I made this again last night but added 1/2 C dairy free mini chocolate chips, it was SO DELICIOUS! Thank you for the great idea 🙂

    Hi Jen!

    I haven’t tried it in this recipe, but sometimes I sub out tapioca flour in place of arrowroot in my recipes. Arrowroot seems to be a bit more binding but the tapioca still usually works. Can you have tapioca?

    Hope you like it!!!

    Man, Cassidy! This looks scrumptious! I seem to have a reaction to arrowroot flour, do you have any ideas for a sub on that?

    Can’t wait to try this for my family. I love the idea of the orange zest and juice – goes perfectly with pumpkin…

    Take care-
