This pumpkin sourdough bread recipe is incredibly scrumptious and very quick to make. You can certainly opt for the lengthier process if you’re hungry for a fluffier outcome, but for now, we’re going to focus on sourdough baking with sourdough discard. Take a look at the delicious recipe below.

  • Total Time: 1 hr 15 mins
  • Yield: 8 servings 1x



Dry Ingredients

  • 420g of whole wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, or white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp of pre-made pumpkin spice, or create your very own pumpkin spice blend
    • 2 tsp of cinnamon
    • 1 tsp ground ginger
    • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
    • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Wet Ingredients

  • 15 oz of pumpkin puree (do not mistake with pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil, or melted butter. If you’re looking for a subtle coconutty flavor, then coconut oil is the perfect choice to go for.
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter or discard
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • optional: chocolate chips, walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, or raisins.


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together melted coconut oil or butter, maple syrup, honey, and vanilla extract. Wait for the mixture to cool to room temperature for a couple of minutes, then add one egg and whisk the ingredients once again.
  2. Add the sourdough starter discard, and pumpkin puree, and mix well.
  3. In another bowl, add your dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, powder, salt, and spices, and mix well.
  4. Carefully, drop the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients, and gently stir until well combined.
  5. You can add in your choice of extras, i.e, nuts or chocolate chips, just be sure to avoid over-mixing.
  6. Pour this into a greased pan, and bake for 50-60 minutes. Check if the bread is done after 50 minutes, by inserting a toothpick into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, then your pumpkin bread has finished baking. However, if the toothpick has some batter on it, then place it back in the oven to finish baking.
  7. Allow this to cool in the pan for one hour before serving.
