Gluten-Free Pumpkin and Date Loaf

How could we let a Harvest Issue go by without a good ol' fashion pumpkin loaf recipe?

Aida the Skinny Chef's Gluten-Free Pumpkin and Date Loaf is the yummiest way to celebrate the pumpkin season (and make your house smell delicious, too).

Gluten-Free pumpkin and Date Loaf



  • 1 ¾ cup of pureed pumpkin, canned or freshly diced
  • 1 ½ stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 ½ cups Gluten-Free all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups Madjool Dates, diced
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup light-brown sugar
  • 2 tspn baking powder
  • 1 ½ tspn ground cardamom
  • 1 tspn ground ginger
  • 1 tspn cinnamon
  • 1 tspn salt

PREHEAT the oven to 375 degrees. 

BUTTER & DUST loaf pan with gluten-free flour.

WHISK together gluten-free flour, baking powder, ginger, cardamom and salt.

In a separate bowl, WHISK together brown and granulated sugars, pumpkin puree, melted butter, dates and eggs. 

ADD flour gradually until incorporated. Do not over mix.

BAKE for about 50-55 minutes. 

CHECK to see if the loaf has cooked by inserting a toothpick in the middle. It should come out clean if done. 

REMOVE from oven and let stand for an additional 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack to cool completely.


  • 8 oz.  organic cream cheese
  • 1 stick of sweet butter
  • 1 cup of confection sugar
  • 2 tspn of ground cardamom

WHISK together until well incorporated and FROST Pumpkin Loaf.

Thank you for this. I am a nanny and doula and am constantly telling clients and friends that there is no correct choice in parenting. Many of our parents - some of whom are excellent nurturers - were too young to worry about what they were doing perfectly or what a book told them.  Being in the moment with your child, without them feeling stress or worry coming off of you - is so important.(that stress that comes from following the rules of parenting instead of just going with the flow of what he/she needs. They are all different after all!)
I am going to share this with many people and take so much flack but it will be worth it!
