Gluten-Free, Oat + Almond Maple Pumpkin Bread

By Kate Daugherty, MS, Functional Nutritionist

Pumpkin is such a perfect pairing for gluten-free baking. Often, GF flours tend to be very dry and tasteless. However, pumpkin adds moisture and gives breads, muffins, and cakes a “normal” texture. I used a combination of Oat Flour (which is JUST ground whole oats) and Almond Flour (JUST almond meal). Many gluten-free flours use gums and starches. These are helpful for mimicking the binding quality of gluten, but I found unnecessary for this type of sweet bread.

The less-processed and closer-to-whole-food my diet can be, the better I feel.

This bread isn’t overly sweet, but I put chocolate on EVERYTHING…. so there was no exception here. I didn’t add them into the batter, but simply sprinkled sugar-free chocolate chips on top! Scrumptious!

Gluten-Free Almond + Oat Pumpkin Bread

Print One-bowl quick mix pumpkin bread using oat flour and almond flour. Add chocolate chips on top!

COOK TIME 40 minutes Ingredients

  • 2 cups Whole Oat Flour (or 3 cups ground rolled oats)

  • 1 cup Almond Flour (Almond Meal)

  • 1 cup Pumpkin Puree

  • 1/4 cup Willa's Oat Milk

  • ½ cup Maple Syrup (or Honey)

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 2 tsp Cinnamon (or Pumpkin Pie Spice)

  • ½ teaspoon Sea Salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips (Optional, for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, pumpkin, Willa's oat milk, vanilla, and maple syrup.

  3. Mix dry ingredients: oat flour, almond flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt to combine evenly.

  4. Next, add the wet mixture to the flour mixture and mix until totally combined. The batter will be sticky.

  5. Line a bread dish with parchment paper. (Spray paper for even easier clean up). Add mixture to lined bread pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top if using.

  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

  7. Let cool COMPLETELY before slicing.

Recipe Notes This bread can be frozen. I prefer to slice, wrap individually and then freeze. Great individual serving to pull out and warm in oven!
