This keto pumpkin bread is our family’s favorite fall recipe packed with spices and pumpkin flavor. It’s the best gluten-free pumpkin bread, moist, perfectly spiced, and incredibly easy to make. At just 4g net carbs per slice, you can enjoy it for breakfast or as a quick delicious keto snack.
I’m utterly excited about fall because it’s my favorite season. All the cozy sweaters, warm foods, and pumpkin treats remind me of the days my grandmother used to make me and my brother tons of delicious meals. And fall is the transition season to winter and all my favorite holidays where I get to spend quality time with my loved ones.
Of course, the meals my grandma made weren’t near keto or low carb but filled with love and dedication. Now I make this keto pumpkin bread for my family, and it tastes the same even it has no sugar or wheat flour adding. It’s so easy to make.
As a reminder: If you still have grandparents, cherish every moment, and spend as much time as possible with them while you can.

How to Make Keto Pumpkin Bread?
- Begin by combining the dry ingredients into a large bowl: almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice. TIP: If you have time, you can sift the flours to eliminate any lumps and make it easier to mix with the other ingredients. This step will reduce the gritty texture that some of you report when baking with almond flour. Set aside.
- In another large bowl cream, the butter and sweetener with an electric mixer until it starts to change to a lighter color.
- Slowly add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.
- It’s time to add the pumpkin puree, heavy cream, and vanilla extract. Beat for a few seconds until combined. This will look a little bit grainy, but that’s ok.
- Now add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture. Beat with an electric mixer just until well combined. Use a spatula to scrape the edges.
- Pour the batter into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and bake at 350°F/180°C for about one hour. If it starts to brown too much, cover with aluminum foil. You know the pumpkin bread it’s ready when a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
- Take the pumpkin loaf out of the oven and allow it to cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before slicing.
This all you need to do, to make this fantastic fall bread. In fact, there’s one more step left: enjoy this delicious keto pumpkin bread with your friends and family along with a cup of milk or tea.
Keto Pumpkin Bread Variations
This easy low carb paleo pumpkin bread it’s delicious on its own, but with some optional add-ins, we can make it even better.
- Chocolate Keto Pumpkin Bread– If you love chocolate add about 1/2 cup unsweetened low carb chocolate chips to the batter.
- Browned Butter – Replacing butter with browned butter, it’s a scrumptious addition that adds so much flavor and a decadent nutty sweetness. To make brown butter, melt butter over low heat until it starts to brown.
- Nuts & Seeds: I love to toast the nuts, so they add a deep nutty flavor.
- A few drops of Pumpkin Stevia Sweetener
- To make keto pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting: Use a hand mixer and beat together 4 oz. softened cream cheese, 2 oz. softened unsalted butter, 1/2 cup of powdered Sweetener, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract until creamy. In 2-3 minutes this tasty keto frosting is ready to serve over sugar-free pumpkin bread
What Pumpkin to Use?
Pumpkin is the star of this recipe, and out of convenience, I recommend using canned pumpkin. It has the perfect texture and saves you a lot of time. Make sure not to use pumpkin pie filling because it has added sugar, starches, and other high-carb ingredients.
Surely, you can make this keto sweet pumpkin bread with pumpkin puree. I love baking fresh pumpkin and then store it in the freezer so I can enjoy it all year long. Make sure to remove as much moisture as possible from the pumpkin. Otherwise, this gluten-free pumpkin bread will turn out soggy.
How to Store Low Carb Pumpkin Bread
This low carb keto pumpkin bread is always a hit, and everyone keeps asking for more. You’ll be lucky to have a slice to enjoy!
If you have keto pumpkin bread leftovers by any chance, it’s best to store it in the fridge once the bread is completely cool. Wrap the loaf in parchment paper and keep refrigerated for 3-4 days.
This paleo pumpkin bread is freezer friendly, meaning the slices freeze with ease and can be defrosted when ready to enjoy. It’s best to reheat pumpkin bread slices in the microwave or oven. This way, the keto bread will remain moist and soft.
