Tips for Making Vegan Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
There’s a lot that you can do to make your vegan chocolate chip pumpkin bread tastier and more versatile. Here are some tips to keep in mind when baking vegan chocolate chip pumpkin bread:
Sweetening Your Pumpkin Bread
If you’re looking to sweeten up your pumpkin bread, don’t be afraid to ~spice~ it up! This pumpkin bread is great plain, sprinkled with cinnamon, or as regular old-fashioned chocolate chip pumpkin bread.
You can also sweeten up your pumpkin bread by adding in a bit of extra maple syrup or honey. If you want to make it sweeter but keep it healthy, we recommend topping your pumpkin bread with some sliced bananas. You can also add in a pinch of agave syrup or Stevia to sweeten up your pumpkin bread.
Making Gluten-Free and Vega Pumpkin Bread
Nothing is better than easy banana bread, and this one is the best! It’s also great that it’s gluten-free, making it easier to serve your friends with dietary restrictions.
And if you have vegan friends, the mix is vegan-friendly. Just make sure to use non-dairy milk such as almond or coconut.
You can also use oat milk, soy milk, hemp milk, or any other type of nut milk, such as macadamia or cashew milk.
Generally speaking, oat milk is the best dairy milk replacement when baking bread and cakes. This is because oat milk mimics the viscosity of dairy milk more closely than other vegan milk varieties. If you bake with coconut milk, you may find that your desserts turn out too greasy and dense. Plus, the flavor of coconut milk can be a bit too prominent for many people’s liking.
If you bake with almond milk, you’ll likely find that your desserts turn out too dry. Almond milk also has a nutty flavor that can be difficult to mask.
On the other hand, oat milk has a very neutral taste. Plus, baking with oat milk means you don’t have to worry about nut allergies.
Achieving Moist and Airy Bread
Part of what sets delicious pumpkin bread apart from regular pumpkin bread is its texture. For pumpkin bread to be delicious, it needs to have a moist, airy texture. As we mentioned above, choosing the right milk alternative will help you get the right texture for your bread.
To ensure the bread is moist, you should also be mindful to not overmix the batter. Overmixing the pumpkin bread batter will cause it to wind up chewy and dry. Instead, you should mix the ingredients just until they’re evenly incorporated. Anything more will mess with the texture.
Buying the Bread Mix
This healthy recipe is one of the best, and every bite will taste like a splurge.
There are so many options, such as pumpkin spice (for your pumpkin bread!), gingerbread, chocolate chip, and the original banana bread.
Easy and yummy vegan recipes aren’t easy to find- which is why we wanted to make one. Having dietary restrictions shouldn’t mean you should enjoy food any less. Luckily, our mix is the key ingredient, and the hardest part to find for other recipes.

How to Store Pumpkin Bread
To store your banana bread, wrap your loaf in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Put the banana bread into a large freezer-friendly storage bag or reusable container. Make sure to date it, and then pop it in the freezer. You can also wrap individual slices to make the bread thaw more quickly when you want to take it out of the freezer.
As you can see, making vegan chocolate chip pumpkin bread is a fairly straightforward process. While there are many ways you can take your pumpkin bread to the next level, the real key to great pumpkin bread is to choose the right dry mix.
