Made from scratch moist pumpkin bread recipe that’s sure to be a new family favorite.  The sweetness of the pumpkin bread is made perfect with the combination of pure maple syrup and dark brown sugar along with plenty of fall spices.



  • 2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 1 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 flax eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚ F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, soda, salt and spices.
  3. In a large separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients starting with the canned pumpkin (except the coconut oil) and stir well . Make a well in the center of your dry ingredient bowl and pour your pumpkin mixture into it, stirring gently with a spoon.
  4. When most of the flour has been mixed in, pour in your melted coconut oil and stir until it is mixed through and there is no more flour showing.
  5. Divide the batter into two standard size loaf pans that have been greased ahead of time. Top with raw pumpkin seeds if desired.
  6. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow the breads to sit in the pan for 5 minutes before removing  them to a cookie sheet to fully cool.


Instead of using individual spices, you may substitute 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice

If using fresh pumpkin instead of canned, use only 2/3 cup of heavy whipping cream

To give a nuttier taste considering using 2 large eggs and 2 flax eggs in the recipe.
