Fall isn’t complete without a slice of moist and flavorful pumpkin bread. Here are 15 of my top pumpkin bread recipes for you bake and enjoy this fall!
There’s nothing I love more than baking a loaf of pumpkin bread on a cozy fall day. When the house starts to smell like cinnamon and pumpkin while it’s baking, and that first slice still warm out of the oven just gives me all of those good fall feels!
To me, pumpkin bread is so quintessential fall. I think it just embodies everything we love about the season and is one of the reasons why we look forward to this time of year so much. This fall, whether you want a classic pumpkin bread, something with other flavors and toppings, I’ve got you covered.
These top pumpkin bread recipes fit a wide variety of diet types and flavor preferences plus they’re all nutritious thanks to the addition of pumpkin puree!

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread Recipes
Gluten-free pumpkin bread is great if you’re following a gluten-free diet or have Celiac disease. Using the proper mix of flours can give you the usual moist and fluffy texture that’s just as delicious (if not more!) then one that’s made with traditional flour. Here are a few variations of gluten-free pumpkin bread that are perfect for fall!
Coffee Infused Pumpkin Bread
This pumpkin spice latte bread was inspired by the flavors in a pumpkin spice latte — the added coffee is a fun twist! And this better than Starbucks pumpkin bread is my healthier version of Starbucks pumpkin bread made with way less sugar and simple ingredients.
Glazed Pumpkin Bread
Adding a glaze on top of pumpkin bread makes it feel like an extra special treat. The cranberry orange glaze on top of this pumpkin bread recipe adds a hint of sweetness and beautiful light pink color.
Combination Pumpkin Bread Flavors
Pumpkin complements a wide variety of other flavors like apple, zucchini and gingerbread. I love making different variations of pumpkin bread that marry other cozy flavors as well and add more nutrition to every bite. If you haven’t made it already, the healthy pumpkin zucchini bread is a must if I had to pick one from this list!
Pumpkin Bread with a Swirl
Elevate your pumpkin loaf with these pumpkin breads that are swirled with extra flavor like cinnamon and cocoa powder.
No-Added Sugar Pumpkin Bread
Some bakery-style pumpkin breads have a ton of added sugar. And while I’m not saying you should never enjoy a fun bakery treat, making a pumpkin loaf at home that’s sweetened naturally is a great option when you’re trying to be more mindful of your sugar intake. The added shredded carrot in this recipe adds an amazing texture to this super moist and fluffy pumpkin bread.
Now grab a can of pumpkin, light a fall candle, and bake up one of these delicious loaves of pumpkin bread! You seriously can’t go wrong with any of the pumpkin bread recipes on this list and I hope they are ones you come back to each fall.
