If you have children it’s especially good for children who are following a gluten free diet.
Here are the Ingredients:
- 5 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 5 teaspoon grated nutmeg
- 5 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 4 cup vegetable oil
- 5 cup agave nectar or fruit sweetener
- 5 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 6 cup canned organic pumpkin
- 5 cup pecans, chopped
- 1 cup currants or raisins or chopped dates
Preheat the oven to 350°F
In a medium-size bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the oil and agave nectar, and beat until well blended. Add the applesauce and eggs, alternating between the two ingredients. When they are well blended, add the pumpkin. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix on low speed until they are blended, but do not over-beat. Add the nuts and currants, and pour into a greased and floured bread pan.
Bake at 350°F for about 1 hour.
To check the bread for doneness, insert a toothpick in the center—if it comes out clean, the bread is done. Cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes, then remove from the pan and let it cool a bit more.

By the way; my wife has made this pumpkin bread for the past few Thanksgiving Dinners and everyone loves it. Shhh but our children do not know that it’s gluten and sugar free so let’s keep this a secret. LOL
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
Have a great day!
