Healthy Pumpkin Bread Recipe No Sugar Gluten Free

This healthy pumpkin bread recipe has no sugar or flour.  It is so yummy, you'll never know that it is a healthier version.  It also makes a great healthy pumpkin muffin recipe,

I'm not sure what my favorite part of fall is? The crisp air, the changing leaves, or the pumpkin? I love pumpkins for both decorating and eating.

We grow pumpkins every year, and I roast them, puree them, and freeze them to use in my pumpkin recipes like this healthy pumpkin bread recipe.

I like this recipe because it doesn't have flour or white sugar, yet it has a great texture and flavor. I promise you that you won't even miss them to additions with this recipe.



This recipe is very easy to make, too.  You make it all in a blender, so there's very little mess to clean up.

It freezes well, so make a few batches and have extras for later.

HEALTHY PUMPKIN BREAD RECIPE NO SUGAR


I like this healthy pumpkin bread recipe because it's so quick and easy to make, and I don't have to dirty a lot of dishes to make it. It doesn't have flour, but you'd never know it after you bake it because it has the same texture as a quick bread.

It uses real maple syrup to sweeten it, which gives it a mildly sweet maple flavor that complements the pumpkin pie spice. This isn't a really sweet dessert, but the pumpkin and the pumpkin spice flavors take center stage.

OATMEAL


Oats make a great substitute for flour in baking.  They are gluten free and have more health benefits, so I prefer to use them.

The first time I made this, I was worried that it would be too dense using oatmeal, but it wasn't.  It's not light and fluffy, but it does have a great texture.

You can use quick cooking oats or old fashioned oats.  I used quick cooking.

Quick cooking oats are smaller, so they cook faster.  They make a lighter and more delicate texture in baked goods.

I haven't tried this with steel cut oats.  I think they make it too dense, so I'm not planning on trying them.

PUMPKIN PUREE


I used my homemade pumpkin puree from pumpkin from my garden.  Making pumpkin puree is truly a labor of love.  It does taste amazing in baked goods though, so I do it every other year and freeze it.


Of course, canned pumpkin will also work.  I do try to get organic pumpkin when I can if I have to buy some.  I think it has a better flavor than regular pumpkin puree.

SWEETENER


This healthy pumpkin bread recipe has no sugar.  I used maple syrup to sweeten it instead.  The maple and pumpkin and spices combine to make a delicate flavor that's perfect for fall.

I suppose you could use honey, but that's a lot of honey.  I buy local raw honey, and it's not cheap.  You could also use part honey and part maple syrup.

PUMPKIN PIE SPICE


I usually make my own spice blends, but I have used the Aldi pumpkin spice.  It's so cheap and tastes good, so I don't worry about making my own.  I used that for this healthy pumpkin bread recipe.

Trust me, you will love this healthy pumpkin bread recipe!

The first time I made it, my kids just knew they wouldn't like it since they heard me mention that it was healthy.

They sure gobbled it up after I got them to try it.  I have one who is pretty much a pumpkin bread connoisseur, so I knew that it had to be good if he was asking me to make it again.

This freezes very well. Make a few batches and freeze it after you bake it.




I hope you enjoy this healthy pumpkin bread recipe with no sugar!
