Why? Well, mostly because tigernut flour is one of my favorite grain free and nut free Paleo flours.
I've been using tigernut flour in my kitchen since 2014; when I just started getting into baking Paleo desserts and snacks. But, this past year I've worked on getting more recipes using tigernut flour on the blog.

Ingredients in Tigernut Flour Pumpkin Bread
Here's what you need to make this egg free tigernut flour bread:
- tigernut flour
- ground flax
- arrowroot starch (or tapioca flour)
- paleo baking powder
- baking soda
- pumpkin pie spice
- pumpkin puree
- water (or almond milk)
- avocado oil (or olive oil)
- maple syrup (or date syrup)
- molasses (or maple/date syrup)
- vanilla extract
Grain Free Flours
A mixture of tigernut flour, ground flax and arrowroot starch are needed to make this paleo bread recipe. The only substitution that I can recommend is subbing the arrowroot for tapioca flour.
For the ground flax, I like to purchase whole flax seeds and grind them in a coffee grinder. It is extremely cheap and easy to do! Plus, this ensures that the ground flax is fresh and hasn't spoiled.
This spiced pumpkin bread recipe is flavored with cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and salt. I use Primal Palate's pumpkin pie spice - it has the best pumpkin flavor and I use it in nearly all of my recipes.
All of these seasonings are optional, but recommended for best flavor. Feel free to add additional spices like nutmeg, ground clove or all spice.
Obviously, pumpkin is necessary for a pumpkin bread recipe 😉 I have made this using two different brands of pumpkin; one thick and the other a bit runny. Both worked.
A little oil is necessary in this healthy pumpkin bread recipe. I recommend avocado oil, as it has no flavor and is great for baking. But, olive oil will work as well.
When looking for a great brand of avocado oil, I always look for one that is: 100% pure avocado oil, non-GMO and packaged in a dark glass bottle. My favorite brand is Chosen Foods.
Maple syrup and molasses are used to sweeten this tigernut flour loaf. I've also tested the loaf with date syrup. Any of these sweeteners can be used, in addition to honey (although honey is not Vegan).
How to Make Tigernut Flour Pumpkin Bread
Like all of my bread recipes, this one is super simple and easy to make! Here's the step by step process:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix Dry Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. This includes the: tigernut flour, ground flax, arrowroot starch, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt. I recommend sifting the tigernut flour, as it has a tendency to clump. Also, for best results the flours should be measured by weight rather than volume.
Mix Wet Ingredients
Next, combine the wet ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl. This includes the pumpkin puree, water, avocado oil, maple syrup, molasses and vanilla.
Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until smooth. Let the batter sit for at least 5 minutes to thicken.
Pour Batter into Lined Pan
Next, pour the batter into a parchment lined 8" x 4" baking pan. Top with additional cinnamon if desired.
Place the loaf in the preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour (60 minutes).
After baking, remove the loaf from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer the loaf to a wire cooling rack and cool to room temperature.
How to Store Paleo Vegan Pumpkin Bread
Because this bread is extremely moist and preservative free, it will not last long at room temperature. I recommend storing it in the fridge, in an air-tight glass container. It will keep well up to one week.
You may also slice the bread and keep it in the freezer. Frozen, it should last well up to one month.

Hi! Is there anything I can substitute for the ground flax?
Hi! I haven't tried any substitutions.

So I personally haven’t tried it yet, but psyllium husk powder, glucomanan and if not vegan gelatin. I assume the flax are used as an egg replacement.
I have been on a GF health quest since BF my daughter who has a wheat intolerance. I’ve tried several GF recipes and flours and this is my absolute favorite. It’s especially good with organic maple butter on top if you have a sweet tooth like myself. Thank you so much for sharing!
Yay! Thank you so much for leaving a review 🙂

Loved it!!! I eat grain free and vegan so this recipe was easy and loved the taste!! Thank you for the recipe… PS… I Only used the maple syrup and I had it just a little more in the place of the molasses
I'm so happy you loved the recipe! Glad it turned out with just maple syrup 🙂
