This keto pumpkin bread is moist, fluffy, and full of Fall pumpkin spices. It is gluten-free pumpkin bread that is also low carb and keto-friendly. And it is also an easy one-bowl recipe. This bread can be eaten for breakfast or dessert and is sturdy enough for toasting.
I tend to go a little crazy with pumpkin ideas every October. And while sometimes it feels like I’ve already made every pumpkin recipe possible, I did notice that I haven’t yet shared any low carb pumpkin recipes on the blog so I definitely intend to share a few this Fall.
First, I wanted to share a keto pumpkin bread recipe because I always have pumpkin bread during Thanksgiving and I want to be able to make classic pumpkin bread and a keto version this year.
I found it surprisingly hard to create a keto pumpkin quick bread. Pumpkin has a lot of moisture and a lot of the recipes I tried ended up with a texture that was too wet or the bread fell apart too easily.
After several cans of pumpkin puree, cups of almond flour, coconut flour, etc, I finally created a recipe I am really happy with. What I especially love about this bread is how easy it is. It tastes like fall with the pumpkin flavor and spices, it’s flourless, and it’s very easy to make with a bowl and a spoon.
- Creamy unsweetened almond butter
- Large eggs
- Granular erythritol
- Canned pumpkin puree
- Baking powder
- Ground cinnamon
- Ground nutmeg
- Ground ginger
- Ground cloves
I’ve only tested this recipe with almond butter, but creamy cashew butter should work, too. If you want nut-free bread, you can try sunbutter.
If you don’t want to use a sugar substitute and prefer honey or maple syrup, you should try my flourless pumpkin bread instead. If you want to use regular granulated sugar for this recipe, I recommend reducing to ½ cup.
I don’t have a substitute for the eggs.
If you prefer to use pumpkin pie spice mix, you can omit the other spices and use 1 1/4 teaspoon of the spice mix.
How to Make Easy Keto Pumpkin Bread
This is an easy, one-bowl recipe. No need to bring out the mixer and it also means less clean-up after.
All the ingredients are added to one bowl and whisked together. You can also blend everything in a high powered blender or food processor.
This bread does not require any flour or flour substitute.
The bread itself only requires 5 ingredients. There are then 4 spices added for flavor.
You can whip up the batter in about 10 minutes and then it’s ready to go in the oven.
The bread is very moist but also very sturdy. You can toast it, butter it, etc. You can also adjust the sugar level if you wish for something sweeter or more savory.
How to Store the Bread
Wrap the bread tightly with plastic wrap and it can be stored in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Reheat the bread briefly in the microwave or toast it in a toaster oven. Make sure to keep the bread slices sealed tightly to prevent the bread from drying out.
