top pumpkin recipes to make in the 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!

Be sure to also check out this dairy-free pumpkin cream cheese that goes great on a slice of any of these breads.

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!

No-Added Sugar Pumpkin Bread

Some bakery-style pumpkin breads have a ton of added sugar.

The added shredded carrot in this recipe adds an amazing texture to this super moist and fluffy pumpkin bread.
