Last year I posted the recipe for my Easy Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread. It’s a moist pumpkin bread filled with chocolate chips. Delicious, traditional, and of course gluten free and vegan. This year I wanted to take it a step further. This Fudgy Chocolate Pumpkin Bread is a rich and gooey twist on my classic pumpkin bread.

I highly suggest slightly under baking this Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread. For a gooey chocolate texture you only want to bake it about 25-30 minutes or until the outside is firm to the touch. After cooling the center will still be slightly fudgy. This moist pumpkin bread is here for all you chocolate lovers.

How to Make Pumpkin Bread Vegan

Over the years I have learned many different tips and tricks for veganizing a recipe. Replacing milk and butter is quite simple. Most dairy free milk and margarine can be used with a 1-to-1 replacement. Replacing eggs, on the other hand, can be a bit more complicated. I’ve used flax seeds, egg replacer, and even the juice from a can of chickpeas. Since I’m allergic to eggs and dairy almost all of my baked good recipes end up being vegan.

Making Vegan Pumpkin Bread is actually the simplest trick of all. I don’t use eggs. Or egg replacer. And that’s all. Since pureed pumpkin is already so moist and thick you don’t need to add anything to replace the egg. The result is a rich and delicious moist pumpkin bread that’s secretly egg free.

Best Flour Blends for Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

As you guys probably already know, I generally don’t use any store-bought gluten free flour blends. That’s why I first want to suggest using my own blends. These blends make your gluten free baking easier and so much cheaper. I always keep a big batch on hand that I can easily grab when I start baking.

In this recipe, I’m using my Gluten Free Self-Rising Flour Blend because it makes any recipe easier. It already has the rising agents mixed right in so it’s one less step when you make your recipe.

If You Are Not Using Self-Rising Flour

If you are not using my self-rising flour recipe to make this gluten free pumpkin bread you’ll have to add your own rising agents. For 1 bread loaf or 15 servings you’ll need 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum.

Wet Ingredients


  • 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips on-top – optional
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips mixed in – optional


  • Preheat your oven to 350°Grease and very lightly grease your bread pan.
  • Whisk all your dry ingredients together and set aside. Then whisk all your wet ingredients together.
  • Pour your wet ingredients into the center of your dry ingredients and mix just until combined with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  • If adding chocolate chips, fold them in now.
  • Pour the pumpkin bread batter into your bread pan and smooth out with a rubber spatula. Top with chocolate chips and press down lightly with your rubber spatula. Bake in the center of the oven – for a fudgy texture bake for 25 minutes; for a drier bread-like texture bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out completely dry.
  • Carefully flip out onto a cooling rack and let rest for about an hour before slicing.



*I wanted to be able to enjoy this pumpkin bread for breakfast without consuming too much sugar. If you want a more traditional sweet pumpkin bread add 1/4 cup more coconut sugar and 1/4 cup cane sugar.
If you are not using my self-rising flour recipe to make this gluten free pumpkin bread you’ll have to add your own rising agents. For 1 bread loaf or 15 servings you’ll need 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum.
