This deliciously moist and spiced loaf is beautiful straight out of the oven, in the lunch box or even used to make french toast for weekend brunch. 

Reminiscent of the ginger loaf my mum used to make us kids for afternoon tea, this one is grain free and sugar free, but equally as delectable.

A super easy way to use up leftover roast pumpkin from last nights dinner (or as I usually do, roast more especially!).


Makes: 1 loaf

Time: Make 20 mins, Bake 1 hour.


  • 1 cup pureed roasted pumpkin (any kind will do) or tinned pumpkin if you must
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup rice malt syrup (or maple but won't be fructose free)
  • 1/3 cup almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 Tbsp cashew butter (or almond butter)
  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour (or arrowroot flour)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup walnuts


1. Heat oven to 180 degrees and line a small loaf tin (20cm x 9cm) with baking paper.

1. Place pumpkin puree, eggs, rice malt syrup, almond milk and cashew butter in a bowl and mix with electric beater until smooth.

2. Add almond meal, tapioca, spices, soda and salt. Mix until well combined *

3. Pour mixture into lined loaf tin and top with walnuts and another sprinkle of cinnamon

4. Bake for 1 hour or until skewer comes out clean. Let cool slightly in tin then slice and enjoy.

*you can also add some sultanas or chopped dark chocolate at this point if you want to mix it up, but I like it as is.
