These tasty Gluten-Free Vegan Pumpkin Cornbread Squares started out as regular cornbread, but ended up being a delicious, dense, dessert-style cornbread full of pumpkin spice flavor. Just so you’ll know what to expect…they don’t have a crumbly texture like cornbread but more dense and cake-like. And although I made these to go with the vegan chili I made for dinner, they just didn’t go with it because they are actually more on the sweet side and tasted more like a dessert. But I especially like this recipe because it’s gluten-free, which means I can enjoy it with my family. If you are looking for a vegan and/or gluten-free cornbread recipe without the pumpkin, try my Vegan Cornbread or my Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Cornbread recipe. Not only do traditional cornbread recipes contain white flour, but they are full of dairy. Here are the typical ingredients in a traditional cornbread recipe: 1/2 CUP BUTTER, 2/3 CUP WHITE SUGAR, 2 EGGS, 1 CUP BUTTERMILK, 1 CUP CORNMEAL and 1 CUP ALL-PURPOSE (WHITE) FLOUR.
