    How to Make the Best Pumpkin Bread Recipe

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
    2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice to form the foundation of bread.
    3. In a separate large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, unsweetened applesauce, unsweetened plain coconut yogurt alternative, honey (or pure maple syrup), eggs, and vanilla extract.
    4. Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Avoid overmixing to achieve a smooth, integrated batter.
    5. Gently fold in melted coconut oil and pour batter into the prepared loaf pan, ensuring it’s evenly spread.
    6. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached.
    7. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely while starting on glaze.
    8. Sift confectioners’ sugar into a mixing bowl and add maple syrup, unsweetened plain coconut yogurt alternative, and vanilla extract. Mix gently with whisk or fork until a smooth glaze forms.
    9. Pour glaze over cooled bread immediately. Slice up your dairy-free pumpkin bread and enjoy!
