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.
Low Carb Pumpkin Bread
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.
