Happy fall! 

Fall is my favorite season, so the first day of fall is one of my favorite days of the year. To kick-off this fall season today, I’m sharing my quick and simple pumpkin bread recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy this pumpkin bread as much as I do.

This simple pumpkin bread recipe is on heavy rotation in my home every year during fall. I love that it only takes a few minutes to make the batter, and the oven takes care of the rest. The smell throughout the house of the baking pumpkin bread is a bonus!

Ingredients
  

  • cups flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda

  • ¼ cup cooking oil coconut oil, canola oil, etc.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 °F. Grease bottom and sides of a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix the first seven ingredients (dry ingredients).
  • In a separate bowl, mix the eggs (or egg replacement), pumpkin puree, and oil.
  • Add the pumpkin puree mixture (wet ingredients) to the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Mix only until everything's blended, but don't over mix.

  • Cool for one hour. Remove loaf from pan, place on cutting board, and slice. Enjoy!

Notes

To make the chia seed egg replacement:
Mix 2 tbsp chia seeds with 2/3 cup water. Let stand for 5 minutes before using in the recipe. Grinding the chia seeds first is optional; I usually skip that step.
Regarding the batter:
When you mix the wet and dry ingredients together, the mixture will seem a bit dry and lumpy. You’ll be tempted to add milk to smooth it out, but don’t do it. 
Regarding the yield:
This recipe will yield 8 (approximately 1-inch) slices per loaf. Adjust the yield based on the thickness of the slices you make.
