Ahhh… what’s better than that – pumpkin, cinnamon smell wafting through the house with pumpkin bread cooking in the oven? I say… not much! You’re going to love this variety of paleo pumpkin bread recipes!
Personally, I love pumpkin year-round, but of course, it’s extra delicious in the fall. Figuring out the correct amount of pumpkin to add to Paleo recipes can be very difficult. Because, let’s face it – cooking with Paleo “flours” is very different than “normal” cooking. You are going to need these Paleo Pumpkin Bread recipes because you can not use your old recipes that use regular wheat flour, it just won’t taste good at all.
Do you have pumpkin patches where you are? Every year I take my children and go down to a commercial farm about half an hour south of where we live. My kids ask all year when we are going to go. We start out by taking a “wagon” ride out to the pumpkin patch. But before we get a pumpkin, we play.
They have a medium slide and a huge slide that you use potato sacks to sit on and slide down. Last year they added a track for these peddle bikes that are kind of like huge big wheels. I’m not sure what they are called, but they are so fun. Then there is a maze made out of huge apple crates. Just big enough to be fun, but not so big that it takes forever to get through.
When we’re all done playing, we go to the patch and pick out our favorite pumpkin. This takes forever and each child has to pick out the one that’s perfect for them. Then we wait for a wagon ride back to the “barn.” At the barn they have homemade ice cream and tons of other goodies and a huge walk-in fridge/room with tons of apples, apple cider and other fresh produce. Just talking about it makes me want to go more than once this year!
Problem is we always have so much fun we don’t want to come home and we don’t bring our jackets since it’s not cold when we leave home, but we’re always cold and tired by the time we get home. Such good times though. Last year we went with my sister and her children and that made it even more fun.
Enough of this talking… let’s get cookin’!

Paleo Pumpkin Bread Recipes
1. Pumpkin Bread or Muffins – My Natural Family
In my opinion, these muffins have a texture that is more like a traditional muffin. I think you’ll really love them. I used pumpkin puree in place of using oil which makes these muffins pretty healthy. I used three different flours to get that nice texture which is the only way that will ever happen. I love the topping which gives it kind of a cinnamon sugar flavor. I think the topping really finishes them off with the sweetness it adds and the crunchy texture. You could easily add some nuts such as pecans or walnuts to the topping to make it even crunchier.
2. Pumpkin Bread – Real Simple Good
This pumpkin bread recipe is unique because of its use of Cassava Flour, which is the closest alternative to traditional flour. This recipe is a great way to get the delicious flavor of pumpkin spice that is so popular and all over the place (for a good reason!) and be able to make it yourself and so you can know exactly what ingredients you are eating and avoid all the added sugars and other unnecessary ingredients in store-bought pumpkin bread products. I love the use of pumpkin seeds in this recipe which makes a lot of sense but doesn’t seem to be used frequently in pumpkin recipes.
3. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread – The Real Food Dietitians
This is a good paleo pumpkin bread recipe if you are looking for a more dessert-like recipe. Or if you don’t want to use chocolate chips, you could replace with your favorite dried fruit like cranberries or cherries to add to the flavor of this recipe.
4. Pumpkin Banana Bread – Do You Even Paleo
This recipe is a fun combination of pumpkin and banana bread, in the SAME loaf! It is also a gluten-free and paleo recipe that. So there you have it, you no longer have to choose between pumpkin bread and banana bread, you can make this combined recipe!
5. Simple Pumpkin Bread – Running to the Kitchen
This simple paleo pumpkin recipe can be enjoyed in the morning for breakfast, as a snack to boost your energy, or as a dessert in the evening. This could also be a good recipe to make ahead of time and portion out as an easy grab-on-the-go food.
6. Coconut Flour Pumpkin Bread with Crumb Topping – Evolving Table
This delicious paleo pumpkin bread uses coconut flour and maple syrup. Along with the recipe Evolving Table’s includes some helpful tips for cooking with coconut flour which can be tricky if you haven’t cooked with it very often.
7. Pumpkin Bread – The Healthy Foodie
Coconut Flour – Tapioca Flour – Almond Flour – Cinnamon – Ginger – Nutmeg – Clove – Cardamom – Real Salt – Pecans – Dates – Banana – Pumpkin Puree – Coconut Milk – Applesauce – Date Paste – Molasses – Lime Juice
Since this is Paleo bread it is quite dense and solid. That means the slices become fragile after the bread is sliced and the slices are detached from the loaf. This problem can be pretty much solved by refrigerating the whole loaf overnight before you try to slice it. Easy fix, right?
8. Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Bread – Bakerita
This bread uses coconut flour and almond butter and is paleo and gluten-free. It also has large chunks of chocolate in it which is always an added bonus, I am always happy when a recipe includes chocolate!
9. Honey Pumpkin Pie Muffins – Paleo Running Momma
My daughter Kayla would go crazy for these muffins. She loves both pumpkin pie and muffins. They seem like a good recipe to make and freeze for a snack to bring on our hikes or an easy addition to her school lunches.
