I am obsessed with all kinds of pumpkin recipes, especially pumpkin bread. One of my first recipes on this blog was paleo pumpkin banana bread because they are so tasty and easy to make if you are a beginner baker.

How to make Pumpkin Bread
Preheat your oven to 350F or 177C. Grease a loaf pan with oil non stick cooking spray. Set it aside.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients, such as all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin spice powder, cinnamon powder, and granulated and brown sugar. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, cooking oil, and milk. Stir well until everything is well combined.
Combine the dry and wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips and raisins. Do not over-mix.
Pour the pumpkin bread mixture into the greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. To check if the bread is ready, insert a toothpick into the bread and see if it comes out clean, then it’s ready.
Storage and Reheating
- Storing: This Pumpkin Bread can be stored at room temperature for 2 days. My preferred method is the freezer. Cut into individual slices, wrap in foil or an air-tight container, and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Re-heating: From frozen, remove the loaf and let sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before enjoying. You can also defrost, then microwave for 30 seconds until warm throughout.
