Ingredients to mix first:

  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 1/3 cup water (to mix with the flax meal to make a flax egg)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil melted (or vegan margarine)
  • 1/4 cup soy milk or any plant-based milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Ingredients to add next:

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour mix or regular wheat or whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg.
  • 1 spray oil on the loaf pan

Optional Ingredients:


  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F.

  2. Mix together flax meal and water and set aside. 

  3. Add the pumpkin, melted coconut oil, soy milk, vanilla, and sugar to a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir well.

  4. Sprinkle the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, pumpkin pie spice) on top of the wet ingredients then stir into a thick consistent batter.

  5. Add chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or dried cranberries and mix again. (optional)

  6. Pour into a greased or parchment-lined loaf pan.

  7. Bake at 350° F for about 50 minutes until the top is dry and golden brown.

  8. Allow it to cool in the loaf pan for about 15 minutes before taking it out and then an additional 25-30 minutes before slicing.  (This allows it to slice perfectly).
