  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin puree obtained from mashed roasted pumpkin
  • 1 very ripe mashed banana
  • 3 tbsp vegan milk of choice I used coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup lightly toasted walnuts
  • 1 vegan chocolate bar melted
  • Pinch sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 175C/350F.
  • In a large bowl combine the flours, baking soda, salt and half of the mixed nuts quantity.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (except the remaining nuts and melted chocolate) and mix to combine, until you obtain a batter.
  • Transfer the batter into a parchment paper lined loaf pan, and bake for 45-50 mins. (insert a toothpick into the loaf, if it's coming out clean, it's ready!)
  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • Before slicing and serving, mix the rest of the nuts with the melted chocolate, and spread the mixture onto the loaf.
