  • Whole Wheat Flour- 2 ½ Cups
  • Baking Soda– 1 teaspoon.
  • Baking Powder– 1 ¼ teaspoon.
  • Ground Cinnamon– ½ teaspoon.
  • Cloves– ½ teaspoon ground.
  • Allspice– ½ teaspoon.
  • Nutmeg– ½ teaspoon.
  • Applesauce- 1 cup.
  • Vegetable Oil- ⅓ cup.
  • Egg- 1.
  • Honey– ¾ cup.
  • Pumpkin Puree- 2 cups
  • Water – 4 tablespoons or as needed.


  • Preheat your oven to 350 and prep a loaf pan well. Using two methods works well- for example, grease and flour over the grease.
  • In a medium bowl, use a fork or a whisk to mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. Set this bowl aside.
  • Next, in a mixing bowl, blend together the applesauce, oil with the brown sugar or alternative. Then beat in the egg or alternative. Lastly, stir in the pumpkin puree and the water (or alternative).
  • For the next step, we will add the dry ingredients from the first bowl (flour, etc) to the mixing bowl. Do this by adding half of the dry ingredients at a time, stirring between additions.Mix until just blended, do not over-mix.
  • Bake this bread for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that this bread can be made vegan. Simply sub in two tablespoons of flaxseed and three tablespoons of water for that egg.
Also mentioned was that this recipe calls for ¾ cup of honey.
Suitable alternatives for that honey would include agave syrup, brown sugar or coconut palm sugar (you may want to increase the quantity as desired).
