Pumpkin Einkorn Bread (or Muffins) with Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting

pumpkin einkorn bread is moist, fluffy, and perfectly spiced!

Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. Where are thou pumpkin?

You’d have to be an ostrich with it’s head stuck in the sand to not be bombarded with pumpkin everything. If you feel a little overwhelmed with pumpkin everywhere, I hear you. But don’t click the X now, you’ll want to hold on just a little longer to make this Pumpkin Einkorn Bread, trust me.

I haven’t done much baking this season yet, but when I set off to make my first pumpkin flavored thing (aka this bread), I was so happy I did.

This Pumpkin Einkorn bread is soft, moist, and spiced with The Real Pantry’s Pumpkin Pie Spice (that’s my real food business, FYI). I love using einkorn because of how old and pure it is. You can find more information on einkorn here.

The Pumpkin Pie Spice is truly the most perfect balanced blend of cinnamon to warm spices like nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and allspice. Buy organic, real food Pumpkin Pie Spice.

Serve it plain for breakfast or mid-morning snack, or top it with this Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting for a sweet (but not overly sweet) dessert. If you’re doing the latter of the two, hunkering down on the couch and binge watching The Good Wife or Downton Abby on Netflix is optional but totally recommended.

I made one loaf and 12 muffins (which were eating before I could take photos of them) and will be freezing half of the loaf (already sliced) for easy snacks or breakfast bread (warmed in the toaster oven).

  1. These muffins were amazing! We did not add the frosting, but we did add some extra chocolate chips:) I will definitely make again; may try frosting next time:) Thank you!

  2. Felt like some pumpkin bread, and einkorn is my go-to flour when I want to eat along with my family. I’m a caterer and baking is my passion. I prefer these muffins over the bread because they’re just more moist. They baked in just 20 minutes, which is average for a muffin but much shorter than called for here. We’re dairy free, and these are fabulous without the cream cheese frosting—not cloyingly sweet but just right. I made half of them with DF chocolate chips, and next time I might just add some to the whole batch. Thanks for a very good, less-bad-for-you recipe! 😉
