Moist and wholesome gluten free pumpkin bread livened up with fragrant chai spices. Whip up some maple butter and slather it on top!
I think I've been on a gluten free bread kick this year with my gluten free loaded chocolate swirl banana bread, gluten free cinnamon roll bread, and now this gluten free pumpkin chai spice bread. Gluten free bread is really easy to make and delicious, so I keep mixing it up in my stand mixer with different combinations for the flavor. Chai spices are so warming and perfect for this time of year. Chai spices wonderfully compliment pumpkin and add a little more pizazz than your standard pumpkin spice.
I know some people already have their Christmas decorations up, but I'm still in fall mode right now. Honestly, I can't just suddenly get rid of pumpkin right on November 1st. I have to slowly transition from pumpkin spice to thanksgiving to holiday baking. With a little maple syrup in this recipe, you get that added robust flavor that amber maple syrup has to offer.
This gluten free pumpkin bread is very moist just to give you a heads up. When I first tried it, I almost thought I was taking a bite of pumpkin pie but with a little chai spice. For this recipe, I sometimes like to crumble a little extra almond flour and chai spice on top to give it more texture (just makes it look a little more interesting). Also, it tastes really good with whipped maple butter.
Whipped Maple Butter
Making whipped maple butter is super simple! Just take butter and maple syrup and whip it together with a stand mixer or hand mixer. If only needing a small amount, just grab a fork and whip it up in a small dish. Make sure you enjoy it while the pumpkin bread is warm!
What You Will Need
Chai Spice Blend
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 ½ tbsp ground ginger
½ tbsp allspice
½ tbsp ground clove
½ tbsp ground nutmeg
½ tbsp ground cardamom
2 cups almond flour finely ground, blanched
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp chai spice blend (see above)
⅛ cup coconut oil
1 ½ cups pumpkin puree
3 tbsp maple syrup
How To Make Gluten Free Pumpkin Chai Spice Bread
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a small bowl, mix together the chai spice blend ingredients until completely mixed together.
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix together the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and 4 tablespoon of the chai spice blend.
Then add the pumpkin puree, coconut oil, eggs, and maple syrup to the stand mixer and thoroughly mix the batter together. You can always add more maple syrup if you like your bread more sweet.
Pour the batter into a lined loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center. Sometimes, I like to mix together a little almond flour and chai spices and crumble on top before baking.
Slather on a little butter and enjoy while warm! I like to whip my butter with a little maple syrup for this recipe.
