  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line two loaf tins with parchment paper (or prepare one loaf tin and a muffin pan for 12 muffins).
  2. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the pumpkin puree and granulated sugar.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, fully incorporating each before adding the next.
  4. Mix in the melted coconut oil, orange juice, and vanilla extract.
  5. Combine the salt, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and cinnamon in a separate bowl, then gradually mix these dry ingredients into the wet mixture.
  6. Slowly add in the flour, half at a time, mixing just until it’s incorporated and a smooth batter forms.
  7. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared loaf tins (or use one tin and the muffin pan).
  8. Bake for approximately 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  9. Allow the bread to cool in the tins for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Slice this moist and flavorful pumpkin bread and enjoy it as a delightful treat any time of day. It’s a wonderful way to savor the taste of fall, and the orange juice adds a unique, bright flavor to the traditional pumpkin spice profile. Enjoy your homemade pumpkin bread and muffins! 🎃
