Low Carb Pumpkin Bread Perfected!

Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

Can you agree that sometimes only the very best option is going to 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.

I know what you’re thinking, another low carb keto pumpkin recipe Hilda? Well, here’s the thing, I have been trying to perfect my low carb pumpkin bread for a couple of years now.

It’s been a real quest to create a low carb pumpkin bread similar to the regular version our family once considered a favorite.

Because working with pumpkin puree can be tricky with low carb flours, I wasn’t quite satisfied  with my prior attempts.

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.

You need to understand that this girl was determined. This meant that my low carb pumpkin bread couldn’t by just a pretty good option, but a great one.

This kind of thinking 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.

You’ll notice that this recipe makes two generous loaves, making it easy to freeze one for later. For an added treat I am including my low carb cream cheese frosting for you to also enjoy.

Favorite Keto Tip

perfect keto starter bundle

Are you looking for a way to jump-start your low carb keto journey?

Can I share with you the number one tip our Fittoserve Group Community Group is using and seeing consistent results with?

The use of Perfect Keto’s exogenous ketones supplement. 

Exogenous ketones allow you to drink your ketones and put’s you into a state of ketosis in under 59 minutes.

Until now to get into a state of ketosis required days, perhaps weeks of very strict keto dieting.

However, with the ability to now drink ketones you can see the results you want to accomplish consistently. Quickly, you can experience what it feels to be in ketosis.

Why is ketosis the goal? Because once you are in ketosis you don’t have as many cravings and your appetite diminishes significantly. In addition, you have more energy and focus helping you to stay committed to the plan.

In the long run, having a tool like this makes the lifestyle easier.  Meanwhile, I invite you to read more about the success we are seeing in our community group here. and to consider giving it a try.

  1. 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!! :)
