Simple Grain-Free Pumpkin Bread (AIP & Vegan)

This simple Grain-Free Pumpkin Bread tastes like the real deal while being vegan, AIP, and Top 8 allergen-free. You know it is good when your gluten-eating family enjoys it just as much as “regular” pumpkin bread!

The texture of this pumpkin bread is absolutely perfect. It is light and fluffy with the right amount of sweetness from the maple syrup. While pumpkin is normally considered a fall treat, this pumpkin bread is so good you will want to eat it year-round—I know I will!

Ingredients for Simple Grain-Free Pumpkin Bread:

  • Tigernut flour
  • Coconut flour
  • Arrowroot powder
  • Baking soda
  • Cream of tartar
  • Canned pumpkin puree (100% pumpkin)
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract
  • Sea salt
  • Optional spices: cinnamon, ginger powder


  • I used a 4.5″ x 8.5″ loaf pan but this recipe will also work well in a standard 4″ x 8″ loaf pan. I wouldn’t recommend a loaf pan bigger than 4.5″ x 8.5″.
  • For the most consistent results, I recommend weighing the tigernut, coconut, and arrowroot flours on a kitchen scale.
  • I have only tried the recipe with canned pumpkin puree and not fresh pumpkin puree. If using canned, be sure that it is 100% pumpkin.
  • The spices are completely optional – feel free to include or add your own depending on your allergies or sensitivities.
  • This pumpkin bread would also taste amazing with dark chocolate chips, carob chips, or walnuts if nuts work for you.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or freeze for up to 3-4 months.

    • Hi Ellen, thank you so much for your review. It makes me so happy to hear it is one of the best pumpkin breads you have every had – what a nice compliment!

  • I will try this today. I do not have pumpkin at hand though, but sweet potato. Since the texture is somewhat the same, and they are both sweet, I hope they are interchangeable

    • Hi Fanny, thanks for reaching out! I think sweet potato puree should work just fine. It will have a different flavor but I imagine it will still taste great. Let me know how it turns out for you!

  • Weighed all ingredients out and followed exactly. There is no binder in this recipe. Even after resting from the oven it crumbles and doesn’t keep its shape. Some really expensive ingredients in this recipe.

    • I am sorry to hear the recipe didn’t turn out as you wanted. Perhaps it was too crumbly due to difference in oven temperature (every oven is a bit different) or another variable. If you want to try it again, you can try adding in a little more pumpkin puree since it acts as a binder or you can add a gelatin egg. Hopefully the flavor was at least enjoyable for you.
