How To Make Keto Pumpkin Bread
- First, bring eggs to room temperture. Then combine all dry ingredients.
- Crack eggs then add in pumpkin and melted coconut oil to keep it dairy free or butter.
- Combine dry and wet ingredients.

Helpful Tips With Keto Bread
- Toast it! The texture of keto bread is not as dry as traditional bread due to a lack of gluten. Toasting the bread makes it crisp and gives that dry feeling we all love with bread. It’s even sturdy enough to spread with butter!
- Bread rises just like real bread. Make sure you batter isn’t too stiff or there won’t be room for it to rise. Be sure to put the vinegar in right before placing in the oven.
- Optional sweetness because some people like the hint of sweet flavor. I suggest about 1/4-1/2 liquid stevia or monk fruit if you prefer a sweeter bread. It doesn’t stand out too much but there’s definitely a difference in taste that’s easily noticeable.
How To Store Pumpkin Bread
Placing the bread in refrigerator is your best option. I have noticed that if left out, after about 3-4 days the taste will get a little funny. Maybe this is the point of it turning bad but anything changing in flavor I just run like the wind. You can also freeze the bread for later as well!
Different Variations For Keto Bread
- Add in nuts! Walnuts go great with pumpkin and are high in omega 3’s. With it being fall season pecans are a great option as well such as in my mug cake recipe.
- Sweetness can be obtained with a little drop of liquid stevia or monk fruit. I wouldn’t recommend using granulated or powdered sweetener because this will alter the texture dramatically. You can also save 15% off monk fruit here!
- Try some different mix ins. Maybe some Gra-POW gluten free, grain free granola instead of topping it off with plain nuts.
- Should you try a cream cheese frosting? You can use a dairy free cream cheese but if dairy isn’t a problem this could be a great topping. You can see my most basic cream cheese frosting here it’s so easy to make.
