Low Carb Pumpkin Bread Perfected!

Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

When it comes to pumpkin season nothing beats the flavor of pumpkin bread for this girl. My recipe for low carb pumpkin bread is loaded with the spices we love in the fall without the worry of too many carbs. 

This recipe for keto pumpkin bread makes two 8X4 loaves. You can, however, cut the recipe in half for just one. However, I love the fact that it makes two allowing you to enjoy one and freeze the other. 

Sometimes only the very best will be good enough. This is what happened when I was determined to create a low carb pumpkin bread that would be as tasty as my traditional high carb version was.

You should know that I have been trying to perfect my low in carb pumpkin bread for a couple of years now. It wasn’t an easy feat to duplicate the pumpkin bread my family considered a favorite. 

I have so many lovely memories baking loaf after loaf of pumpkin bread every pumpkin season. But after I removed gluten from my diet, a new gluten-free pumpkin bread recipe was in order.

The lack of gluten in the low carb keto flours does not make baking a pumpkin bread easy. For more on how to bake with low carb flours, I encourage you to read my favorite low carb baking tips.

What I found on my quest to make a perfect a low carb pumpkin bread was that using a combination of low carb flours worked best in duplicating the flavor and texture of traditional pumpkin bread. 

My recipe calls for both almond and flax flour and a generous amount of pumpkin pie spice. As far as I am concerned there is no such thing as too much pumpkin pie spice. But if you want a milder option simply reduce the about of spices. 

I love how the combo of flour alternatives produces a moist yet dense quick bread that holds up to slicing, toasting and slathering with butter or the cream cheese frosting I included.

You need to understand that this girl was determined to bring back pumpkin bread safely back into her diet. This meant that my low carb pumpkin bread couldn’t be just a pretty good option, but a great one.

This kind of determination is how I was able to create a fantastic option for pound cake with our low carb cream cheese pound cake.

If there is one thing I am, it’s relentless. I just won’t give up on a recipe without a good fight. Fortunate for you, I finally won this battle and what we have here is a real winner.

In addition to the two generous loaves this recipe offers, I included my low carb cream cheese frosting for you to also enjoy.

    I love pumpkin and since I just cooked a pumpkin and pureed and put it in the freezer, I think it's time to get some out and make me some pumpkin bread. I believe I will leave off the frosting as I do not have the swerve powdered sugar substitute and don't care to buy it. But I think I'll enjoy the pumpkin bread without it anyway.
    • Hi Michelle, don't you just love pumpkin season? The cream cheese frosting is fab but by no mines necessary. If you are using fresh pumpkin purée I suggest you let it sit on a few coffee filters to make sure you remove some of the excess moisture. Enjoy in good health???
  2. How many servings/carbs are in the Pumpkin Bread?
  3. Oooooo. . . . looking forward to trying this one. My husband REALLY loves the Breakfast Bread and is asking for more such recipes.
  4. Wonderful fall recipe, love this reblogging thank you :)
  5. There are still enough pumpkins hanging around the markets for us to enjoy this bread downunder. Thanks for sharing your recipe. What is pumpkin pie spice? Is there a substitute I can use? Ta
    • Hi my friend, if using fresh pumpkin allow the purée to sit in a few coffee filters to remove the excess liquid. Pumpkin spice is just a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, with cinnamon playing the major role. Feel free to make your own blend, similar to what is used for pumpkin pie. ?
  6. Thank You so much for sharing this recipe...It is so delicious, even my picky 10 year old loved it!! :)
    • Hi Christine, so thrilled you and your son enjoyed it. I know how challenging it is to have a picky eater at home. I have one of those too. Follow the blog via email and never miss a post. ???
