  • 2 cups teff flour
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or sugar of choice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon psyllium husk powder See Notes
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
  • 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice we like to use oat milk
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or any vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9×5 or 8×4 loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the teff flour, sugar, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon nutmeg, baking soda, psyllium husk (if using), and salt. Mix well.
  • In another bowl combine the pumpkin, milk, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Whisk until smoothly combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until a smooth batter forms.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. Smooth the top with a wet spatula.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until the outside is firm and a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Let the loaf cool completely (about 1 hour), before slicing and serving. Enjoy!


Psyllium husk powder is an optional ingredient. I tested this bread both with and without with good results. When made with psyllium husk, the loaf has a slightly more open, moist texture. Without, it is slightly denser and more cake-like.
