If you’re as excited about Fall as I am, you’ll love this pumpkin bread recipe! Cool weather, yummy breads and warm sweaters… yay for Fall!
This recipe is a delicious twist on my gluten free pumpkin bread.
It’s made with pumpkin, lots of spices, buckwheat flour, coconut flour and, the best thing of all, tangy cranberries! Plus it’s dairy free! Prep is super easy – mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another and then mix them together.
Quick and easy and the result is a super moist pumpkin bread.
A few reasons why this is the gluten free pumpkin cranberry bread that should be on your table
Not as sugary as most
This gluten free pumpkin cranberry bread uses waaay less sugar than most pumpkin bread recipes, let alone quick bread recipes. Most of them are around the 2 cup mark for sugar so once you see the sugar content in this recipe, you’ll see why I’m not holding anything back in bragging that this recipe does NOT have that much sugar!
In fact, ½ cup brown sugar and ½ cup honey is all you need.
It makes a great gift
So this could be for any quick bread, right? They all make great gifts. Well, this one is the best one to gift! The reason why is because it stays moist for days. Several days and this is still a moist and tender bread.
Keep these loaves in the refrigerator for the best storage until gifting time.
Short prep time
Let’s face it, sometimes we just want a bread that’s easy. Something that doesn’t take an hour to rise. I bake every day and even I can agree with that!
Quick prep time is a nice added bonus with this pumpkin cranberry bread. It doesn’t take more than 20 minutes to prep and then it’s just a waiting game for it to bake. Nothing intense. Just easy going.
Gotta love that.
