I keep cans of pumpkin stocked in our pantry year-round because it’s such a flexible and fabulous ingredient to bake and cook with. Muffins, pancakes, waffles, chili, cakes, pies, you name it, pumpkin brings a delicate texture and delicious flavor to everything its added to.

I feel like most recipes containing pumpkin are super sweet and indulgent though. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sweets and indulgences, but pumpkin is healthy in itself so why not feature it in more healthier recipes too?!

My Healthy 5-Ingredient Flourless Banana Bread recipe is baked and loved by so many of you that I decided to create a pumpkin version. A yummy bread you can bake with ingredients you more than likely already have on hand, that’s quick to get into the oven and that you can feel great about eating often.

Hearty oats, pure pumpkin, maple syrup, eggs, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice are all easily blended in the blender to create the batter for this bread. You’d never know it doesn’t have flour or oil or butter or granulated sugar in it.

This hearty, moist, slightly sweet loaf will win you over the first time you bake it and will become a bread you crave to bake over and over again. Be it for breakfast or a snack, it’s healthy and delish! Enjoy!

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 2 cups old-fashioned or quick cooking oats
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pure pumpkin
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or just cinnamon)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 9x5-inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and well combined. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (If the top of the loaf is browned, but the center is not baked all the way through yet, simply cover the top with foil and let the loaf continue to bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.)
  3. Let loaf cool completely in loaf pan. Store bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Notes
Use gluten free oats if you want the bread to be gluten free.

    I made the banana bread version and it was delicious! Just wondering if you think you could add baking powder or soda to make it rise more or would that change the recipe too much?

    • MaeganMaegan

      Hi Nicole! When testing the recipe, I did try adding additional baking soda and even one batch with a teaspoon of baking powder, but it caused the loaf to rise too rapidly and gave the bread a bitter taste.

    I never comment on recipes but this one is AWESOME. I made it yesterday (I had a pumpkin that needed roasting), added a touch of vanilla and it came out really well. It’s the only healthier bread that I’ve made that tastes good and has a great consistency (and doesn’t put me in a food coma!). I can’t wait to try your banana version.

    Thank you!

    • MaeganMaegan

      Yay! I’m so happy you baked it and loved it, Noel! You’ll definitely have to try the banana version. It’s equally as amazing! 🙂

    Hi! I can’t wait to try this! What kind of maple syrup do you use? I only have the natural, unsweetened kind. The label says no high fructose corn syrup. Will this be sweet enough? Thanks so much! I hope to hear from you soon. 🙂

    Thank you, Maegan! I’m finally getting around to making it today. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Thank you again for your reply! 🙂

    So happy to have found this recipe and cannot wait to try! The banana bread – AMAZING! I did use honey in lieu of the maple syrup and added a layer of walnuts under the bananas on top, then sprinkled with less than a teaspoon of raw coconut sugar. Thank you for making our mouths dance!

    Hi, this looks amazing. I’m always looking for healthy breakfast breads and muffins. Can I substitute honey for the maple syrup?
    Thanks so much. 🙂
