Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread


This Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread is made with almond flour, sweetened with maple syrup, has a delicious nutty streusel, and totally screams of fall!


This Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread is hands-down the BEST pumpkin bread I’ve ever had. It’s super moist, dense but delicate, and it has a wonderful cozy fall flavor. 



This Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread made with almond flour has a delicious walnut and cinnamon swirl is the best part of this bread (though the swirl in this loaf doesn’t look much like a swirl).   It’s slightly sweet and deliciously nutty.  If you don’t like nuts (or are allergic), then I’d say to still add the cinnamon and maple syrup “swirl” to the mix.

gluten-free-pumpkin-breadIt might remind you a wee bit of Sock-it-to-me cake (which is one of my favorite coffee-cakes).  The walnut cinnamon swirl is made of chopped walnuts (lightly toasted), cinnamon, pure maple syrup and a wee bit of coconut sugar. If you’re a nut lover like I am, you’ll enjoy picking the nuts out of this bread!


Guys, I’m so sorry for the long stretch between recipes!!!  My computer crashed, and when I was able to get her up and running again, I had to upload all of the apps that I lost, which included Photoshop/Lightroom, etc.  So….we’re back…..thankfully!!

gluten-free-pumpkin-breadI originally shared this recipe on September 27, 2015 (my dad’s birthday).  Ive updated it here with new photos and a slightly tweaked recipe.  My family is seriously addicted to this healthy pumpkin bread.  If you give this recipe a try, please let me know.  I hope you love it as much as my family does!
