A veganized version of a fall favorite.

I used to love my mom’s pumpkin bread when I was little. Luckily, when I was little I was only a vegetarian and not a vegan. But, since that has changed, I have had to veganize a lot of my favorite home made foods from when I was a kid. I also removed a lot of the sugar.

Who knew how much sugar some home made foods have in them?

Like peanut butter balls; my absolute favorite Christmas cookie; it’s basically sugar, butter, peanut butter, and chocolate. Something’s gotta change with that this year.

But, for now, let’s focus on the veganization of pumpkin bread.

I know you’ll love the results!

Hopefully, you’ll have some left for breakfast the day after you make it. Home made bread doesn’t tend to last that long in my home!

Let’s Get Baking

First, get out your ingredients.

Gluten-Free & Vegan Pumpkin Bread Ingredients laid out before making it.

Preheat the oven to 375℉.

Mix the almond butter and brown sugar til completely combined.

Then add in all of the dry ingredients; oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon. Mix as well as you can.

If you don’t have oat flour, that’s fine; simply grind your old fashioned oats til they turn into a flour. I used the milling blade with my nutribullet for this, you could also use a food processor, coffee grinder, or highspeed blender like a vitamix.
