This Vegan Pumpkin Bread is perfect for Fall! Packed with delicious pumpkin spice flavor, it makes a tasty snack or a fantastic holiday gift.
This vegan pumpkin bread is one of my all time favorite Fall treats. It's so simple to make, totally delicious, and I usually have all the ingredients on hand to start with.
I typically bake this recipe in three mini loaf pans (like these), so I can keep one for my family and gift the others to friends. They make a nice gift to bring when visiting friends and relatives over the winter holidays.
These pumpkin breads are also a great family-friendly treat, full of nutritious ingredients, to make and enjoy at home. A mug of hot cocoa is the very best companion for this pumpkin bread, but tea will work too.

- In another bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, syrup, and oil and whisk together until smooth. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Stir together until completely mixed. If the batter is too stiff to mix, add a very small amount of juice to loosen it a bit, but let it should remain thick.
- Stir in the raisins or currants, walnuts or pecans, and optional chocolate chips.
- Divide the batter between 3 lightly oiled mini loaf pans (mine are 6 by 3 inches).
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of one tests clean.
