To make the streusel crumb topping, start by combining the almond flour, sugar substitute, cinnamon powder, salt, and chopped pecans or walnuts in a medium-sized bowl.

Slice the cold butter and crumble it into the dry ingredients using your fingers or two forks until small crumbs form. Place the mixture in the refrigerator and proceed to make the bread batter.

How To Make A Keto-Friendly Pumpkin Streusel Bread

Making this keto bread is pretty straightforward. After you make the streusel topping, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease and line with parchment paper an 8×5 inch loaf pan.

Then, use an electric mixer to beat the pumpkin puree, sugar substitute, melted butter, and vanilla extract until well blended in a large mixing bowl.

Next, add in the eggs one at a time, making sure to beat them until thoroughly combined.

To the wet batter, add the dry ingredients: almond flour, flax meal, baking powder, psyllium husk powder, and spices. Stir in the chopped pecans and spread the batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Then, add the streusel topping to the loaf and gently press it into the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40–55 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Allow the pumpkin bread to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing it by lifting it out using the parchment overhang.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze them for 3 weeks.

Tips For Making The Perfect Keto Pumpkin Streusel Bread

  • Make sure all your ingredients for the bread batter are at room temperature. This will allow for easy mixing.
  • Use only pumpkin puree, NOT pumpkin pie filling. You want to use puree because it does not contain any added sugar or spices.
  • Be sure you melt the butter and allow it to cool entirely before creating the wet mixture.  Then, once cooled, add the butter to the eggs, and pumpkin puree.
  • Combine all your dry ingredients in a separate bowl before adding them to the wet ingredients. This way, everything is well integrated.
  • Make sure the butter for the streusel topping is cold and that you refrigerate the streusel topping while you make the bread batter so that it crisps well as it bakes.
  • Feel free to substitute the spices listed for pumpkin pie spice.

Best Sugar Substitute Choices

As far as sweeteners are concerned, I recommend the use of Lakanto’s granulated sugar substitute; it’s their erythritol and monk fruit sweetener that is as close to sugar as it gets.

You could either use their regular granulated or their gold, which has a delicious brown sugar flavor profile. But you can also use Swerve an erythritol sugar substitute. 

You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure for most of my baked goods. However, if using Pyure, you will want to use half the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter choice. 

Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute, you can also use Splenda for baking or a generic brand of the same.

It will work with great success. I know not everyone would agree with me here, and I respect that, but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.
