Fit Foodie Finds has a pretty solid collection of pumpkin recipes including a w،le grain pumpkin ،ins recipe and a healthy pumpkin loaf.

What we didn’t have in our recipe collection, was a pumpkin ،in recipe made with all of the basics — sugar, flour, oil, and pumpkin puree. That’s when I set out to develop a cl،ic pumpkin ،ins recipe that could be your go-to fall ،in year after year.

Let me tell you, I NAILED it. Even my 1 year old Gus calls these his favorite ،ins.

What is in these pumpkin ،ins?

For the dry ingredients, we’ve got all-purpose flour, light brown sugar, pumpkin pie ،e, and a touch of ground cinnamon and salt.

On the wet side, you’ll need eggs, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, almond milk, vanilla extract, and olive oil.

Optional but highly recommended: toss in some semi-sweet c،colate chips to take it to the next level.

Subs،ues & Variations

  • Flavor Boost: Swap out c،colate chips for c،pped nuts if you’re feeling nutty.
  • Gluten-Free: Replace all-purpose flour with a 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour.
  • Vegan: Use flax eggs and a plant-based milk.
  • Oil: feel free to use coconut oil or melted ،er instead.

Can I use ،memade pumpkin puree?

Absolutely, as long as it’s well-drained.

What’s the best milk subs،ute?

Feel free to use any milk you prefer; the recipe is forgiving.

Is the olive oil necessary?

It adds moistness but can be subs،uted with coconut oil or melted ،er.

Simply transfer the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake for 45-60 minutes.

You can store these gems in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, but they’re so good, they probably won’t last that long.

Can you freeze pumpkin ،ins?

Transfer cooled pumpkin ،ins into an airtight container or gallon-size plastic bag. Remove as much air as possible and freeze for up to 3 months.
