Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

Low Carb Keto Pumpkin Bread

I know what you’re thinking, another pumpkin recipe? 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 loved.

Working with pumpkin puree can be tricky with low carb flours. The lack of gluten in these flours does not make baking a pumpkin bread easy. But this girl was determined. Just like I was when I created 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.

Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

Ingredients:

1 15 oz. can of pumpkin puree

2 cups granulated of sugar substitute (I use Swerve)

1 table spoons of baking powder

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice

3 tablespoons of cinnamon powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

10 large eggs

3 cups of almond flour

1 cup of golden flax meal

Instructions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Grease two 8×4 inch loaf pans well. In a large stand up mixer, beat the pumpkin puree, sugar substitute, and vanilla extract until well blended. Beat in the eggs one at time until fully combined. Next add the almond, flax meal, baking powder, spices and salt.

Note that batter will be thick. Pour into the prepared pans and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1  8 0z package of softened cream cheese

4 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

1 cup of Swerve powdered sugar substitue

Instructions:

Beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy in a stand-up mixer. Next add the heavy whipping cream and beat until fully combined.  Add the sugar substitute one tablespoon at a time gently mixing so as to not lose too much volume.

    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💞🙌🏻

      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. 💞
