To me, pumpkin bread is the queen of all fall baked goods. There’s simply nothing better than a moist and fluffy piece of pumpkin bread topped with creamy almond butter or pumpkin spice cream cheese with a cup of my version of a Starbuck’s pumpkin cream cold brew (made dairy-free!) on a cozy fall morning. I live for those mornings!

This pumpkin spice bread recipe is truly everything you want and more in a loaf of pumpkin bread. The taste and texture are taken up a notch thanks to the addition of coffee-soaked dates and espresso powder. It’s PSL in bread form and I am here for it all fall long!

Which Gluten-Free Flours to Use

The combination of oat and almond flour makes this pumpkin spice bread recipe super moist and fluffy and keeps it gluten-free. Its texture really reminds me of Starbuck’s pumpkin bread, and Rob even said it tastes better than Starbuck’s pumpkin bread which is truly the ultimate compliment!

Note, not all oat flour is gluten free, so be sure to read the label if you are looking to keep this loaf gluten free. And although I would classify this as a treat, you can feel good knowing this pumpkin coffee loaf packs extra nutrition from pumpkin puree, oat and almond flour, coffee (hello antioxidants!) and dates.

While I haven’t tested all the pumpkin bread recipes out there, I can honestly say I’ve never had one as good as this one turned out!

Pumpkin Puree – About LIBBY’S 100% PURE PUMPKIN

This pumpkin spice loaf uses almost an entire can of pumpkin puree. Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin is what I use in all of my pumpkin recipes –they’re the only ones I trust when it comes to pumpkin puree because they’ve been the leading producer of canned pumpkin for generations.

Their factory in Morton, IL is 100% landfill-free. They are able to achieve this by recycling pumpkin by-products and incinerating the remaining waste for energy recovery. Pumpkin waste, like rind and skin, finds new life as land applied fertilizer—except for the seeds—those are sold for wild squirrel food.

It’s nice knowing that the process of harvesting a vegetable that can be used in so many different ways is also finding many different ways to ensure as little waste from that process as possible. Pumpkin puree is incredibly versatile and I’m happy to see that the whole process is one that aims to be sustainable.

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Latte Bread

Making this pumpkin spice loaf is pretty easy and doesn’t require too many steps!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and grease a 9X5 baking pan with cooking spay (just on the bottom, not up the sides).
  2. Start by roughly chopping the dates and adding them to a small saucepan with the coffee. Heat on low for about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 tsp. baking soda. Let cool and thicken while you prepare the other ingredients.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the dry ingredients: oat flour, almond flour, pumpkin spice, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder.
  4. In a large bowl with a hand-held mixer (or using a stand mixer) cream coconut oil and brown sugar together. Next, add in each egg one at a time and vanilla extract. Then add in pumpkin puree and 1/3 cup of the coffee date mixture, mixing until fully combined.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together using a wooden spoon until JUST combined. Do not over mix. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick comes out mostly clean with just a couple of crumbs attached.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 6 pitted medjool dates, roughly chopped
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 ½ cup oat flour
  • 1 ½ cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9X5 baking pan with cooking spray. Only on the bottom and not up the sides of the pan. 
  2. In a small saucepan add coffee and chopped dates and let simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes. 
  3. Remove from heat and stir in ½ tsp. baking soda. Let cool while you prepare the bread. You can place it in the fridge for a few minutes to help cool it down faster.

  5. In a separate medium-sized bowl use a hand-held mixer to cream the light brown sugar and melted coconut oil. Add in vanilla extract and eggs one at a time mixing after each one.
  6. Next add the pumpkin puree and coffee date mixture mixing until just a few date pieces are visible throughout the mixture.
  7. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and use a wooden spoon to gently mix until just combined, careful not to over mix.
  8. Add the batter to the greased baking pan and place in the oven on the center rack. Bake for 50-55 minutes until a toothpick comes out mainly clean with just a few crumbs attached. Let cool completely before slicing.
