      Hi Renate
      Thanks for bringing that to my attention. It’s now fixed so you can see the Metric and Imperial measurements. You could use coconut flour if you could tolerate that?

      Unfortunately, this recipe doesn’t work well with an egg replacer, like a flax egg. I did try it and it never fully set.

  1. Is it possible to substitute Stevia for the Maple Syrup. If so, what would the amount be and would you need to add
    extra liquid? Thank you.

    1. Rebecca Coomes

      Yes, liquid stevia can be used. I haven’t tested this recipe with stevia so I suggest you add a few drops and taste the mixture and see if you want it sweeter (so add more). You may need to add some extra moisture to the batter though, as you’ll lose the volumne from the maple syrup. You can always add a bit of water if your mixture looks too dry.

    Hi Rebecca, can banana be substituted for the pumpkin in this recipe for those of us SIBO’ers who can tolerate banana? If so, I’m also wondering if the spices should be toned down a bit to maybe only include cinnamon and nutmeg — like traditional banana bread?

    1. Rebecca Coomes

      Hi Debbie
      I haven’t made this recipe with banana but I’m sure it would work. You could also just use cinnamon as that goes brilliantly with banana.

      Hi Nathalie
      Yes, I am sure that would work. I haven’t tried it with lemon juice, but you need to add an acid in to create the chemical reaction to create the rising action in the bread.
      Rebecca

  3. Hi Rebecca,
    What could one use instead of the almond meal please? I cannot have almond and there are so many recipes with almond meal in it.
    Thank you for your advice, Sibylle

  4. I thought nuts are high FODMAP? I’ve been looking for a pumpkin bread, and this recipe looks amazing, am new to FODMAPs due to SIBO and was told no nuts. Your prompt reply greatly appreciated!!

    1. Hi Tina
      Each nut has been calculated for its FODMAP values. Some nuts are higher than others, and some nuts can easily be eaten by people following a Low FODMAP diet. Do you use the Monash University Low FODMAP app? This is the best place to check the quantities of foods for low, medium and high FODMAP levels.
      Being told you cannot eat any nuts on a Low FODMAP diet is incorrect. There could be other reasons why you need to avoid nuts, such as a nut allergy or because you are also following an auto immune protocol, but you can eat the low FODMAP nuts on a low FODMAP diet.
      This pumpkin bread has been developed in accordance to the quantities allowed for a low FODMAP serving.
      Rebecca
