Ingredient Notes

There are a few staples in these vegan pumpkin recipes that you’ll want to have on hand. While this isn’t an exhaustive list, it’ll help you get started!

  • Pumpkin Puree: Either canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin puree will work. Make sure if you get a storebought version that it is unsweetened and plain. 
  • Vegan Butter: Some of these recipes call for fat. You can use vegan butter or your choice of neutral oil. 
  • Plant-Based Milk: You can use coconut milk, almond milk, or your favorite non-dairy milk. For recipes that use more of a cream, canned coconut milk is an excellent alternative. 
  • Salt
  • Spices: Warming spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. You can also use a “Pumpkin Pie Spice” blend. 
  • Chocolate Chips: Many brands make vegan chocolate chips. You can source these in your local grocery store or online. 
  • Gluten-Free Flour Blend: If you’re gluten-free, you’ll need an all-purpose gluten-free flour blend with xanthan gum to replicate the structure and texture in baked goods. If you’re not gluten-free, you can use regular all-purpose flour.

Roundup FAQs

Is canned pumpkin the same as fresh pumpkin?

Not exactly. Canned pumpkin is a convenient option if you’re in a pinch and must add pumpkin puree to a recipe. However, you can also roast and puree fresh pumpkin for recipes as well. It does take longer preparation but is unprocessed and easy enough if you have the time. 

Can pumpkin replace egg in baking?

Yes! Pumpkin can serve as an egg replacement, which is common in vegan recipes.
