Easy Keto Pumpkin Bread

This gluten-free pumpkin bread is light, rich in flavor and incredibly moist. Made with almond flour and sweetened with stevia makes for a healthy breakfast  or snack for the family. 

You are going to love this recipe because it’s easy enough for a novice baker to make. 

If stevia is not your preferred sweetener, simply swap one of your choice. 

Turn the sweetness level up and it can be served for dessert!

Who Doesn’t Love A Drizzle Of Chocolate!

A scrumptious pumpkin bread recipe, with the warm spice mix of Autumn, probably doesn’t need chocolate. 

Who are we kidding! A drizzle of chocolate is always welcome, especially when it is sweetened without processed sugar. 

This added drizzle whisks easily with cacao, stevia and butter and firms beautifully when chilled. 

Dairy Free Pumpkin Bread Variations

Yogurt and butter are used in this Keto recipe but both can easily be swapped with coconut yogurt and melted coconut oil. 

Using yogurt in this recipe, with almond flour, makes for a very moist bread that lasts well in the fridge for a week. 

Keto Pumpkin Chocolate Bread

My daughter in law has been diligent all year about sticking to a Keto diet. The arrival of autumn and her passion for ‘all things pumpkin’ worried her temptations. 

Not to worry! “I will create for you a spectacular Keto pumpkin bread recipe and it will even have a ‘no sugar’ chocolate drizzle”!

This mama always wants her family happy and healthy.

How To Make Pumpkin Keto Bread

Many baking recipes can quickly become Keto, simply by making a few swaps in the ingredients.

First, blitzing oats or almonds into a flour are my first go-to swaps for processed white flour. 

Like most quick bread recipes, there is simply the mixing of wet and dry ingredients together, then baking. 

Generally eggs become part of the wet ingredients. However, to make this bread light as well as moist, I separate the eggs, whip the whites and add them at the end. 

An Easy Non-Stick Baking Tip

Keto flour, because of its more granular texture instead of gluten flour, can often stick to the baking pan. 

The last thing we want is to lose one single delicious bite simple because part of our baked good is still in the pan. 

A simple trick is to brush/spray the pan with your choice of oil or butter first. Then cut a strip of parchment paper, just a band, so it hangs off the sides of the pan. A little brush on the paper and pour in the batter. 

Once the baked good is cool, simple lift up on the parchment handles you created and pull it out! 

Equipment Needed

  • Loaf pan
  • Parchment paper – just a strip
  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk or electric hand mixer
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Microwave or stovetop – to melt butter
  • Oven – for baking
