  • 1 box Sugar-free cake mix You can use a regular cake mix if you don't want sugar-free.
  • 1 15oz pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup applesauce Unsweetened or sweetened, whichever you prefer.
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil Be sure it is melted to a liquid before pouring into bowl.
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds These are for sprinkling on top before baking (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray a bread loaf pan with coconut oil lightly. Line the bottom of hte pan with parchment paper.
  • Combine dry ingredients, the cake mix cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir to blend.
  • Combine wet ingredients, pumpkin puree, eggs, apple sauce, coconut oil into a medium bowl. Stir until well combined into a smooth batter.
  • In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients together. Stir until you have a smooth creamy batter.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes clean. You could also use a digital thermometer. The bread is done when it reaches 205 degrees.
  • Allow the bread to cool, then remove from pan and slice.


  • Be sure you buy pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • If you can not eat a whole loaf of pumpkin bread, then make this recipe in cupcake tins. You can easily freeze any extras in an airtight ziplock freezer bag.
  • So your bread does not stick, it is best to spray your loaf pan with non-sticking cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper.


  • I like to add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to my batter.
  • Pecans or walnuts would also be delicious in pumpkin bread.
  • Cut your bread into squares and top with cream cheese frosting for delicious treats.
