Keto Pumpkin Coconut Flour Coffee Cake, a recipe that has all this season’s pumpkin spice flavors minus the high carbs.
This keto pumpkin coffee cake is made with coconut flour making it not only keto-friendly but it’s a nut-free, sugar-free option.
Last month I shared my recipe for keto pumpkin streusel coffee cake and it was quickly well received. It encourages me so much when you all share your lovely pictures giving my recipe a thumbs up.
However, I wanted to create a low carb pumpkin coffee cake that did not use any nut flours. I have made it a point to try to add more recipes that are made with coconut flour and I am thrilled to say my collection is growing.
What’s not to love about a keto pumpkin coconut flour coffee cake? After all the use of coconut flour makes it an even lower in carbs. If that doesn’t inspire you to try this keto coffee cake I don’t know what else will.
My recipe for keto pumpkin coffee cake is a spice-filled, moist, tender, treat. What’s more it’s easy to make.
Every bite of this cake is packed with the pumpkin spices we all love during fall. Making it a great option during a season where high carb desserts run rampant.
Because I chose to make this keto pumpkin coffee cake with coconut flour instead of almond flour, now even individuals with nut allergies who are able to consume coconut have an option too.
Keto Pumpkin Coconut Flour Coffee Cake
To ensure that you make the perfect keto pumpkin coconut flour coffee cake there are a few steps you want to remember.
First, make sure all your ingredients for the coffee cake are at room temperature. If you’re in the habit of skipping this step, wise up and start making this step important.
Trust me it makes a world of difference when it comes to combining your ingredients if you remember to have your ingredients already at room temperature.
Another vital tip is to make sure you are actually using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling. I can’t tell you how often people make the mistake of using the wrong one.
If that happens while doing a keto diet you will certainly be kicked out of ketosis since pumpkin pie filling is loaded with sugar.
Do make sure you melt your butter and then allow it to cool before adding it to the wet batter. You don’t want to add hot butter to the mix unless what you’re after is scrambled eggs with pumpkin.
Taking the time to measure and combine all your dry ingredients into a separate bowl before adding them to the wet ingredients, will ensure that everything gets incorporated well.

Keto Pumpkin Coffee Cake (Coconut Flour)
When baking this keto pumpkin coconut flour coffee cake, you can choose to bake it in a 9-inch springform pan or any other 9-inch baking pan.
I am really a fan of springform pans and it’s why I opted to make my coconut flour version of my keto pumpkin coffee cake in it. But any baking pan including glass would work with this recipe.
I’ve topped my pumpkin coffee cake with a vanilla icing that takes this cake to even greater heights. It’s made with powdered erythritol, which if you haven’t tried you want to put on your shortlist.
Because it’s a close to confectioners sugar as you are going to get when going keto. It’s my go-to choice when making a keto-friendly icing.
Making A Coconut Flour Keto Streusel Topping
Thankfully, creating a coconut flour keto streusel topping for your pumpkin coffee cake is pretty straightforward.
You’ll only need coconut flour, sugar substitute, butter, and some pumpkin filled spices. If you can have nuts in your diet you can add a cup of your favorite chopped low carb nuts to the topping.
