Vegan Pumpkin Bread
 
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour (or you can use 1½ cups whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¾ cup brown or turbinado sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 6 Tbsp warm water
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup almond milk
  • 1 heaping cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest (one orange is all you need)
  • ⅓ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Combine ground flaxseeds with warm water and let sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. Whisk together the dry ingredients (flours through brown sugar) in a large bowl.
  4. Whisk together the remaining wet ingredients (oil through molasses) then add the orange zest and the flax-water mixture. Mix well, then gently fold into the flour mixture.
  5. Stir just until all traces of flour disappear, then fold in walnuts. Spread evenly in the pan and bake for about 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove from pan and let cool completely.
