Pumpkin-Pecan Bread

I have been wanting to make this bread for a couple of weeks. Pumpkin Bread is one of my favorite quick breads. I am excited to share this vegan gluten-free pumpkin bread that is one of my favorites.

Dry Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large bread pan with parchment paper.

Add all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk, until all the ingredients are well combined.

Stir-In:

  • 1/2 c pecan pieces

Add the pecan pieces into the dry ingredients and mix on low, until pecans are completely incorporated.

Wet Ingredients:

  • 16 oz. pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 c sparkling water, plain
  • 1/3 c almond milk yogurt
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Topping:

  • 3 pecans, pieces
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds

Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, until they are well incorporated. Spoon batter into the prepared bread pan. Sprinkle topping ingredients onto the batter.

Bake for 75-80 minutes (turn the loaf halfway through the cooking time), until toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool bread in pan for 10 minutes on a wire cooling rack. Turn bread out of pan and let the bread completely cool on a wire rack.

GF All-Purpose Flour Blend – Vegan

This flour blend is vegan. A lot of times gluten free flour blends have milk powder in the mix for the added protein. I have used that blend, however, I have a new one that does not contain milk powder and works beautifully.

The blend is made up of four different ingredients. It is perfect for an all-purpose flour and making of breads and pizza crust. Mmm – pizza. I am looking forward to blogging some new recipes with this new flour blend.

  • 200 grams sorghum flour
  • 200 grams millet flour
  • 300 grams sweet rice flour
  • 300 grams potato starch (not flour)

Combine all flours. Mix well and store in a sealable container. I use gallon size mason jars. It is the perfect size for a batch of this blend.

Note: I recommend weighing the flours separately and then combining. Weighing each ingredient is more accurate and gives you a better blend.
