Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread (Gluten, Refined Sugar, & Dairy Free)

Written by Tiffany H

Oat flour pumpkin bread.

I didn’t have that in my sights for this fall. However, a friend randomly messaged me and asked if I had a good gluten free pumpkin bread recipe. She added that, if not, she had a suggestion for a recipe to develop and share on the blog.

*Hint, hint* πŸ˜‰

I had two problems.

#1 – I like pumpkin.

Pumpkin bread

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cheesecake muffins, and on, and on.

#2 – My dear, sweet, loving husband does NOT like pumpkin.

My Fall seasons come and they go, and they often come and go without anything pumpkin in them.

One year Hubby did encourage me to make a healthified pumpkin pie, and it turned out pretty well. I think he even ate a piece.

But otherwise, “I hate pumpkin” is what I hear if I even dare suggest the idea.

I very rarely take the time to make something that Ryan won’t eat.

It doesn’t feel worth it.

Food, to me, plays a big part in showing my husband that I love him and I care about what he likes. How loving would it be if you told your husband/wife that you hate meatloaf, and then come home to it’s (disgusting) aroma filling the house? That just screams “I love you, Dear!”, doesn’t it? πŸ˜›

But this time, someone ELSE was requesting it! Plus Baby Boy hadn’t tried pumpkin yet and he still loves all things food, so I thought now was a great time to try some oat flour pumpkin bread. πŸ™‚

An added plus is the leaves are changing and the temps have dropped to crisp low 60’s ushering in lots of ‘Fall feelings’. And I love Fall! So bring on the pumpkin… πŸ˜‰

My Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread background

This recipe is a modification from Dr. Axe’s pumpkin bread. I changed a couple major things along with using a smaller pan so that the bread wouldn’t be so flat (like in their video).

At the time of my initial posting of this recipe, the original picture at the top of his site made me suspicious that it might be a stock photo. (He stated that he sometimes uses stock photos to represent gluten-free recipes). The recipe originally calls for almond and coconut flour, and even though that combo can be delicious, it does NOT end up looking (feeling, or tasting) like a wheat counterpart.

I want to make sure it’s clear that all my recipes come with my own, original, unique-to-the-recipe photos. I use stock for other posts (like my postpartum depression series), but NEVER recipes.

What you see should be what you get if you make my recipe! πŸ™‚

    I made this pumpkin bread today and it is amazing!! My husband won’t let me take it to work to share. Which means I’ll be making it again and saving this recipe for the future too! It’s so moist and flavorful. I used fresh pumpkin I baked the night before and coconut sugar instead. Very, very good. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    • That’s so awesome, Run! Bahaha, my husband does the same thing when he especially likes something I make. πŸ˜‰ Yay for coconut sugar. I love that stuff too! Thank you for sharing your review! 😘
