Gluten Free Samhain Pumpkin Bread

After coming across Le Lady Moon's Samhain Pumpkin Bread recipe, I wanted to make a gluten free version with a few slight changes! Thank you, Le Lady Moon for sharing this splendid recipe!

First off, you might be wondering, what is Samhain? Pronounced saah-win, Samhain is a Celtic holiday that honors our dead ancestors, renewal, & as in all Pagan holiday's, appreciation for nature. We should take note! Samhain also happens to be the Witches New Year, a time to go inward & take care of ourselves, prepping for the seasons. We just celebrated with the Full Blue Moon on Halloween! Continue the celebrations with this Gluten Free Samhain Pumpkin Bread!


  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1 cup white powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice

  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 tsp ground clove

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/3 cup water

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or hazelnuts

  • 1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour - I use Pamela's

  • 3/4 cup gluten free tapioca flour - I use Bob's Red Mill

The Process

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, clove, baking soda

  • in a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: butter, water, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin

  • once both are smooth mixtures, toss in a bowl & blend together

  • mix in walnuts or hazelnuts

  • grease your pan - I did not have 2 loaf pans (Le Lady Moon's recommends), so I used a 10x10 ceramic pan

  • Le Lady Moon recommends baking 50-60 minutes - right on point as it took me about 55 minutes!

Le Lady Moon's recipe calls for vegetable oil instead of butter, but I knew my ancestors would not be having that (they love their butter), so I decided to switch it up! Check out her Samhain post for the original recipe!
