Pumpkin is my absolute flavor EVER and this Vegan Pumpkin Bread Recipe did not disappoint! It kind of reminds me of the Starbucks Pumpkin Pound Cake. You know the one 😉
What is Aquafaba?
What’s unique about my take on this recipe, is that I am using Aquafaba as an egg replacer. If you are unfamiliar, Aquafaba is nothing more than the liquid that remains when you drain a can of chickpeas. I know it sounds crazy, but it acts and performs similarly to eggs. And, it’s vegan!
Start with the dry ingredients:
The first thing I add to the bowl of my stand mixer are the dry ingredients. These include: All purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Next up, granulated sugar.
AND brown sugar.
The spices that I love oh-so-much are cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
Let’s get to that Aquafaba!
I drain a can of chickpeas and reserve the liquid. That is liquid gold right there! Save those chickpeas for your next salad OR, season them with spices and roast them. They become the most delicious croutons.
We need 6 tablespoons (or 1/3 cup PLUS 1 tablespoon). You’ll also have some remaining liquid, so if you wanted to make a double batch – depending on the brand you purchase – you may have enough to double this recipe.
It’s all about that pumpkin…
The star of the show is next. Pureed pumpkin. Take care NOT to buy pumpkin pie filling. It’s not the same thing. The label should have one single ingredient. Pumpkin.
I used almond milk, but any non-dairy milk will work here. I prefer almond because it is just a bit thicker in consistency than other nut milks.
Vanilla extract rounds out our flavor profile. Mmmm…love that smell!
Combine everything together. I always finish the last few stirs with a spatula to get any remaining flour from the sides or bottom of that bowl. Actually, I am obsessed with SPOONula’s. Have you seen these before? *affiliate link
Just look at that loaf! What a thing of beauty.
Serve it up in style!
I topped mine with a non-dairy whipped topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon. I think any vanilla-based non-dairy ice cream would be amazing here. Grab a cup of coffee (or in my case, tea) and enjoy 🙂
