magic pumpkin bread recipe perfect for fall or the holidays

There’s nothing like a yummy fall inspired piece of pumpkin bread when the weather is crisp and the days become shorter.  At least that’s my humble opinion! What most people don’t realize is that there are magic applications to any recipe. Take, for example, this pumpkin bread.  While the recipe in and of itself is yummy, you are infusing the recipe with the magical properties of the herbs used (more on this in a bit!). Add to that the positive energy you infuse as you make the bread and you have a magical bit of deliciousness by the time you are finished!  Below you will find my special recipe for a healthy and delicious pumpkin bread that is sure to knock the socks off of anyone who tries it.


I’ve also included the magical properties of the herbs used, a spell to say over the bread and the best day to bake it for some added magical oomph.  Enjoy unleashing your inner kitchen witch!

Magical Pumpkin Bread:


  • 1 15oz Can Pumpkin Puree
  • 4 eggs
  • ~ 3 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (I like the blend from Primal Palate)
  • 1/3 cup Vegan Vanilla Protein powder (I like the vanilla chai blend from RAW protein)
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2-1/2 Cups Gluten Free 1-to-1 baking flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Almond Oil
  • ¾ Cup Applesauce
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • ½ Cup Coconut Palm Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit
  2. Grease two large bread pans
  3. In a large bowl, stir the eggs, pumpkin, oil, applesauce, sugar, and honey together until combined.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, protein powder, and spices until combined.
  4. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture until it comes together.
  5. Pour the batter into the pans.
  6. Bake in the oven for ~50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool before enjoying!


Magical Properties of the herbs:

Herbs used in the pumpkin pie spice blend include Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves and Nutmeg. Altogether, these herbs make this pumpkin bread an awesome vessel for attracting prosperity and banishing negative energies.  The bread is also great for warming you up energetically because all of the herbs used are warming in nature. Below you will find each herb along with a list of its magical uses.

Cinnamon-> protection magic, drawing in money, healing magic, increasing psychic ability. Warming herb, masculine energy, and associated with the element of Fire.

Ginger-> increasing power, drawing in money and success, increasing potency of love spells, slight healing properties.  Warming herb, masculine energy, associated with the element of Fire.

Cloves-> attraction, drawing in money, drives away negative energy, cleansing a space, comfort for bereavement.  Warming herb, masculine energy, associated with the element of Fire.

Nutmeg-> good luck charm, fidelity, drawing in prosperity, healing.  Warming herb, masculine energy, associated with the element of fire.


Say this spell over the batter before pouring it into the pans and baking the bread.  Doing so is sure to enhance the magical properties of the herbs used. You may also say a spell over the batter if you want to infuse the bread with any specific properties.  For example, the spell provided below focuses on bringing in prosperity but you could say a spell for healing, love or even to bring forth positive serendipitous events for those who consume the bread and your spell will take effect.

With this batter oh so sweet

May abundance I now meet

I bake this bread with pure of heart

Trusting my magic will now impart

Prosperity for all who enjoy

This gift I bake without ploy

With all the magic of three times three

And So it is, Blessed Be

I recommend baking this bread on Thursdays or during the New Moon for optimum effect when using the prosperity spell

I know you will enjoy this delicious bread and prosperity will soon follow.  I recommend keeping a record of how prosperity shows up in your life and telling those who eat it to be on the lookout for extra prosperity and abundance coming their way!  I always love to hear your stories and comments….reach out to me on my blog at or follow me on social media @TheFlourishingWitch for more spells, energy healing, and more!
