  • 1 ½ Tbsp flaxseed meal (to make flax eggs)
  • 4 Tbsp water (to make flax eggs)
  • 1/4  cup date syrup
  • 3/4  cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 Tbsp mashed ripe banana (primarily for binding)
  • 2/3 cup packed coconut sugar (plus more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2  tsp ground cinnamon
  • tsp pumpkin pie spice (plus more to taste)
  • 1/2  cup water
  • 1 heaping cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2  heaping cup Almond meal (ground from raw almonds)
  • 1 1/4  cup gluten-free flour blend
  • Tbsp raw pepitas (I mixed in a couple pecans)


  • Prepare flax eggs in a large mixing bowl by mixing flaxseed meal and water and let rest for 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  • Prepare loaf pan by lightly greasing or lining with parchment paper.
  • To the flax eggs, add pumpkin, mashed banana, agave or maple syrup, and olive oil and whisk to combine.
  • Next, add brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice and whisk.
  • Add water and whisk again.
  • Add oats, almond meal, and gluten-free flour blend and stir. If it appears too wet, add in another couple Tbsp of oats or GF flour blend. It should be semi-thick and pourable (see photo).
  • Scoop into loaf pan and top with raw pepitas (and/or pecans).
  • Bake for 40-47 minutes or until deep golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let set in pan for at least 20 minutes and then gently transfer to a plate to cool.
  • Let cool completely before slicing, preferably several hours. Otherwise, it can be a bit crumbly.
  • Also, slice gently, as it’s rather tender.
  • Once cooled, store in a covered container or cover with plastic wrap at room temperature to keep fresh. Freeze after that to keep fresh for up to one month.
