Pumpkin Biscotti-Gluten Free!

Enjoy this yummy pumpkin bread, without the gluten, and with your favorite hot beverage! Gluten Free Pumpkin Biscotti by Travel Parent Eat

Just because you can’t eat gluten, doesn’t mean you have to be left out of the “all-things-pumpkin” recipe exchange that happens every fall.  In fact, this recipe is perfect for any and all fall evenings.

Have you ever had biscotti?  It’s a crispy piece of quick bread that is just perfect for dunking in your favorite hot beverage*.  I can picture myself eating this biscotti with some yummy hot chocolate Thanksgiving morning while watching the Thanksgiving Parade (slippers on my feet, comfy blanket over my lap, roaring fire in the fire place, kids lovingly, quietly lying on the floor watching with me…hey a girl can dream right?)

*Currently my husband and I are loving the combination of Stephen’s White Hot Chocolate and Pumpkin Pie Coffee Creamer.

Try some for yourself: 


And this biscotti is the perfect pairing with the “homemade” pumpkin steamer.

I found this pumpkin biscotti recipe on bloomi.com  and wanted to try it gluten free.  Biscotti is actually a great bread to take gluten free, because the texture doesn’t factor in very much.

Pumpkin Biscotti


1 c white rice flour

3/4 c tapioca flour

1/2 c cornstarch

2 tsp xantham gum

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

3/4 c sugar

1/2 c pumpkin

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp vanilla

2/3 c white chocolate chips



Sift the flours, cornstarch, xantham gum, baking powder, spices, and salt together.  Blend the eggs, sugar, pumpkin, oil,  and vanilla.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Mix until fully incorporated, then stir in the white chocolate chips.

Shape into a loaf on a baking pan lined with parchment.  Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.

Remove when it is done (toothpick test), and allow to cool for 30 minutes.  Turn the oven down to 325.  Cut the loaf into 3/4 in slices.  Either lay the slices down, or stand them up on the baking pan.  Bake at 325 for 30 minutes until crispy.  If you lay the slices down, turn them over after 15 minutes.

    Just made this GF recipe and it is so exciting to have biscotti again! The pumpkin and spices made my house smell ready for Thanksgiving. I used butter instead of olive oil, made my own mixture for the pumpkin pie spice, and baked these at 9,000 feet! Thank you for sharing!
