If you like bread, then you should try this recipe! This Vegan Pumpkin Bread is incredibly easy to make, it’s moist, delicious, chocolatey, and infused with roasted pumpkin puree.
Vegan Pumpkin Bread With Chocolate Chips
Chocolate is my favorite but if you’re not a fan (kinda weird :D) replace it with roasted walnuts or pecan nuts. If you’re not a pumpkin pie lover then you’ll enjoy this delicious Vegan Pumpkin Bread as a coffee accompaniment or delicious dessert.
For this recipe, I have used homemade roasted pumpkin puree but canned pumpkin works too, (not pumpkin pie filling). Chocolate chips are optional and can be replaced with nuts and pumpkin seeds.
Can I Make Oil-Free Vegan Pumpkin Bread?
Oil can be replaced with 2 tbsp vegan unsweetened yogurt or applesauce for 2 tbsp oil. Replacing the oil will result in a less tender texture but do not worry it’s going to taste delicious anyway!
Wrap your delicious vegan pumpkin bread in aluminum foil and keep it at room temperature for 3-4 days or store it in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5-6 days.
Ingredients and Substitutes
Pumpkin puree: I love homemade pumpkin puree because it’s fresh and much tastier.
Plant-based milk: Oat milk is a good option for people with nut allergies, but any plant-based milk will do!
Sugar: I used 1:1 white granulated sugar and light brown sugar, but it can be replaced with coconut sugar and maple syrup or any liquid sweetener as a sub for refined sugar.
Oil: Neutral oil it’s used for this recipe. Use canola, sunflower, or olive oil.
Ground flax meal: Acts as an egg substitute and helps bind the ingredients. I use this ingredient for most of my baked goodies.
Flour: I used all-purpose flour but it can be replaced with spelt flour, and whole wheat flour.
Pumpkin spice mix: This mix will give a nice flavor to this pumpkin bread. This is a mix of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and cardamom powder.
Baking powder, baking soda, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips:
