Spicy and moist this Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread is delicious if you want to make it even better add the maple glaze. This easy quick bread is perfect for your morning cup of coffee, an afternoon treat or a midnight snack! You will love this delicious recipe!
So this one time I made this amazing Oat Flour Pumpkin Bread, my sister and I fell in love with it. It was so moist, perfectly spiced and full of pumpkin flavor, not too oaty, and the maple glaze.. to die!
The inspiration for this bread was from my oat flour banana bread, it has been one of my most viewed pages and one of my personal favorites. The oat flour is so easy to make, all you literally do is blend oats until they resemble a flour-like texture. The oats create a beautiful depth of flavor in the bread.
I hope you give this recipe a try, we loved it and will make Oat Flour Pumpkin bread over and over again. The maple glaze is not necessary, but it so is necessary!! I just love maple and pumpkin, like I do here and just wait until next week another maple pumpkin recipe I have planned!!
This recipe starts off with oat flour, to keep this recipe gluten-free make sure to use gluten-free oats.
📖How do you make Oat Flour?
Take either rolled or quick oats then place them in a food processor and process until a fine flour-like texture. You won’t end up with an all-purpose flour texture but it will look and feel like flour, with some chunks of oats in. This creates the oat flour to make the quick bread recipe.
🎃How do you make this oat flour pumpkin bread recipe?
This easy recipe starts off with melted butter whisked with granulated sugar. Then add your eggs and vanilla extract. Next, add your freshly made oat flour, baking soda, salt, and spices ( I used a blend of ground cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg- feel free to add some cardamon or ginger too). Finally, gently fold in the yogurt and pumpkin puree.
Pour the batter into a greased 9X5 Loaf Pan and bake in a preheated 350F oven for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 20 minutes before inverting on to a wire rack to cool completely.
The pumpkin bread is delicious but if you want a little something extra then I suggest making this maple glaze. I love a real maple punch so I use maple extract to really pack the punch. In a small bowl whisk together powdered sugar, maple syrup, maple extract and a little bit of hot water. Then pour over pumpkin bread and let set.
Baking is a science and to really achieve the best results I highly recommend investing in a kitchen scale. This OXO Kitchen Scale (affiliate link) is the one I use and is also the number one recommended kitchen scale by Cook’s Illustrated. Think about it -what one person scoops into a “cup” is completely different as to what someone else scoops!
