Gooey Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf
This recipe is modeled and lightly tweaked off my Healthy Pumpkin Bread recipe that I posted back in the fall. Although fall is long gone, I find pumpkin bread delicious throughout the year, so I just worked on a vegan option, which is equally delicious!
Perhaps you googled “best pumpkin bread recipe with canned pumpkin” and ended up here; well, that’s perfect! With a can of pumpkin and a few other pantry staples, you’ll have this delicious treat ready in less than 10 minutes!
If you love all things pumpkin, I might suggest you also check out: paleo pumpkin chocolate cookies, breakfast turmeric pumpkin cookies, vegan pumpkin muffins, pumpkin granola, or even this healthiest banana bread you’ll ever make, which has hidden pumpkin in it!

VEGAN PUMPKIN LOAF
By The Granola Diaries
- 1 C Pumpkin Puree
- 2 Flax Eggs (2 tbsp ground flax + 6 tbsp warm water), or 2 regular eggs for non-vegan
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 – 4 Tbsp. Maple Syrup (Optional. If prefer totally sugar-free, leave out!)
- 2 C Oats, ground into a flour-like consistency
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (if you don’t have, use nutmeg, ginger, cardamom, or more cinnamon)
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- Dash of salt
- Optional add-ins: chocolate chips, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, etc.
- Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×5 loaf pan. Make flax eggs and allow to gel in fridge for 5 minutes.
- Mash banana in a bowl. Combine pumpkin, flax eggs, and maple syrup (if using) in a bowl.
- Add oat flour, baking soda, and spices into bowl and fold into wet mixture. I like to use a Silicone Spatula for this.
- Fold chocolate chips and any nut/seeds into the batter once its all combined.
- Pour into loaf dish, top with some more add-ins for presentation, and bake for 25 – 27 minutes, for a raw, mushy consistency, or 30 – 32 min, for a more solid bread.
