A 1-bowl moist keto pumpkin bread

This is an easy 1-bowl pumpkin bread recipe that everyone can make ! Let’s see all the ingredients you need to make this delicious moist keto pumpkin bread.

  • Almond flour – I recommend fine almond flour for best result. Almond meal is coarser, it would dry the bread
  • Coconut flour – don’t skip or replace, it’s the combo of coconut flour and almond flour that makes this bread so moist
  • Canned pumpkin puree. If you are wondering whether or not pumpkin is keto friendly, it definitely is with an average of 4g/100g of net carbs.
  • Sugar free crystal sweetener – erythritol, xylitol or Monk fruit stevia blend
  • Coconut oil or butter
  • Eggs – make sure you are using large eggs, at room temperature not cold!
  • Pumpkin spices – or see the recipe card notes for the blend of spices you can use to replace store-bought pumpkin spices
  • Baking powder 
  • Powdered sugar free crystal sweetener – optional, only if you want to add the ginger glazing on top of the bread

Tips to bake a low-carb bread loaf

Keto bread loaf are thick and dense. Therefore, they require precision and patience to achieve the best texture. Check out my tips below to succeed any time:

  • Measure the ingredients with precision – you can make the recipe using cups or grams/oz. If you are using cups, make sure you slightly pack flours in the cup and level the top to remove excess. In fact, keto breads use high fiber flours that are 4 times more liquid absorbent than regular flour. As a result, if you miss some of flour, the bread will remain too wet. Or if you add too much flour, the bread can be very dry. That’s why precision is key.
  • Egg size – this recipe calls for large eggs, smaller eggs result in a dry keto pumpkin bread
  • Temperature of the ingredients – it’s crucial to use ingredients at room temperature. For example, cold eggs solidify melted coconut oil ,creating oil lumps.
  • Baking time – be patient, this keto pumpkin bread is thick and requires at least 70 minutes of baking
  • Add a piece of foil on top of the pan – as for any large bread loaf, it’s recommended that you add a layer of foil on top of the bread after 20 minutes. This will prevent the top of the bread from burning and the bread will cook perfectly in the center.

Can I use homemade pumpkin puree?

I recommend canned pumpkin puree for best results. However, you can use your homemade pumpkin puree in this keto pumpkin bread recipe. If so, make sure that your pumpkin puree is not watery. This happens if you boil the pumpkin instead of steaming it.

  • Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line a loaf pan 9 inches x 5 inches with a piece of parchment paper. Slightly oil the paper to make sure the pumpkin bread doesn't stick to the pan. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs with sugar free crystal sweetener for 30 seconds or until well combined. Set aside.
  • Whisk in canned pumpkin puree and spices until evenly combine. Set aside.
  • In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder. Make sure the coconut flour don't create lumps, if it does whisk faster or break them with your fingers.
  • Pour the beaten egg mixture and melted coconut oil onto the flour bowl. Make sure the eggs are at room temperature and the melted coconut oil is lukewarm, not hot. Hot coconut oil (or butter) will cook the eggs. On the other side, cold eggs will solidify coconut oil creating oil lumps.
  • Combine the ingredients until it forms a consistent loaf batter. It will be heavy, thick with no lumps.
  • Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan and spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle the chopped walnuts on top of the bread and slightly press them to stick to the top.
  • Bake for at least 70 minutes up to 80 minutes. After 20 minutes of baking, add a piece of foil on top of the loaf pan to avoid the top of loaf to burn.
  • After 70 minutes, insert a skewer in the center of the loaf, if it comes out clean or with few crumbs, it is cooked.
  • Remove the loaf from the oven and cool for 20 minutes in the pan.
  • Lift the loaf out of the pan by pulling the pieces of parchment paper and cool the pumpkin bread for at least 4 hours or overnight on a cooling rack.
  • When the bread is at room temperature, you can prepare the ginger glazing.

Ginger glazing

  • Combine powdered sugar free sweetener, water and ground ginger until it forms a runny white glaze. Add more powdered sugar free sweetener if you like yours thicker.
  • Drizzle on top of the pumpkin bread loaf.
  • Slice into 16 slices.

Storage and freezing

  • Store the bread in an airtight box to keep the bread moist. Place the container in the pantry and store for 3-4 days.
  • Freeze the bread slices in zip bags or silicone airtight container of your choice. Defrost the slices the day before at room temperature. Rewarm in a toaster, oven or eat as is.
Pumpkin spices: 
If you don't have pumpkin spices, replace the 3 teaspoon of pumpkin spices by adding this combo of spices: 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon all spices, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger.
Net carb per slice including walnuts on top and glazing : 3.6 gram

    This was great…. even the hubby and brother in law loved this! I never cook with almond flour, I always use a whole made ground seed flour that I make myself. Usually a mixture of sesame seeds, pumpkin, sunflower, flax, ect. Seed flour is a fine substitute for nut flour in most recipes, although I never hold it against a recipe if it doesn’t work. This was fluffy, light, and flavorful. I’ll be making this often.

    Haven’t made the loaf yet, but with all these good comments, can’t wait to.
    My questions is, you say to cut the loaf in 16 pieces, what would the grams be per piece. I’m using a longer loaf pan, and if I cut the loaf into 12 pieces, they are 1 inch pieces. How many inches per slice or grams per slice. I want to keep the macro correct within your recipe.

  3. 5 stars
    I made 16 muffins, because a loaf is very hard to equally divide into 16 pieces. I also topped them with a keto strudel (butter, brown swerve, almond flour, pecans) instead of icing. They are delicious and do very moist!

  4. I really want to make the recipe but I’m confused about the calories/macros. When I put the information into MyFitnessPal it says one slice (out of 12) will be 204 calories, 6.9g (total) carbs, 19.1g fat, and 4.5g protein. I know it depends on what brand you use but the flours and coconut oil are similar to other brands so I’m not sure how your fats are so low. Are you able to put what brands you use so I can compare my products?

    The above information is not including the nuts, erythritol, or glaze.

  5. Not sure yet, but I’m a little disappointed. I’m not sure what happened, but my bread burned. Maybe not a total loss but definitely doesn’t look appealing. My oven was set at 350. I set the timer but it is somewhat charred. Hopefully, what I can salvage will be tasty. May have to try it again.

    • I am sorry to hear that. Usually a cake or a bread who brown too fast is not a problem with the recipe but with the oven temperature or the height where the food is baked. It is recommended to always bake thick bread or cake in center rack. You can also calibrate your oven temp, use an oven thermometer and check that the temp shown on your screen is the one that appears on the thermometer. It’s possible that your thermostat is a bit shifted and keto baking is very sensitive to high temp since it use lots of nut flours. A tip for the future, add a piece of foil paper on top of the bread after 25 minutes baking to prevent the issue, it will diffuse heat and avoid the top to burn. Enjoy the keto recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine

  6. Hi! Was just wondering if I could use just coconut flour, I don’t have any almond flour! Or would that change it too much?

    • Both flours are never swap able by a 1:! ratio simply because coconut flour has 4 times more fiber than almond and its extremely liquid absorbent. Almond flour can be replaced by other keto flours like sunflower seed flour, sesame flour. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

    This recipe was the best I’ve tried yet. Had to alter a bit but the base ratios were spot on point. Thanks

  8. 5 stars
    This was amazing and I will try to freeze slices for future treats when my macros allow! I used a little more pumpkin puree than the recipe described (I wanted to use all that I had left). The end product was a cross between a pie and pudding which I actually liked. The flavors are amazing in this and was a great way to finish my pumpkin puree. I also used butter instead of coconut oil and it turned out great. I tried to reduce the amount of my non-sugar sweetener because I have suspected I have an intolerance to it but it still caused the same issue. I will definitely repeat this recipe with a different sweetener in the future because it’s simply amazing!

    I made the twice. Once with granulated sugar for my daughter, who has a GI disorder and can only eat sugar, but is dairy and grain free. I made it a second time as printed. Both times the bread was superlative. Yes, it is April 1st, but no joke this is great pumpkin bread.

  10. 5 stars
    I couldn’t decide between this recipe and the zucchini bread recipe so I combined them and it’s delicious! It took some tweaking but turned out perfectly moist and just sweet enough. I had a small amount of homemade pumpkin purée that I used to make a half portion of this recipe as the bottom layer and topped the loaf pan with a half portion of the zucchini bread recipe. (I subbed carrot for zucchini.) This loaf turned out beautiful and tasty!

  11. Just thought you might want to know that the title for the recipe has a typo error…..forgot the k

  14. 5 stars
    I just made these and they were excellent! I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. Just personal preference. I also made them in a muffin pan which yielded twelve good-sized muffins, baked at 350 for 45 min. Didn’t have any walnuts so I topped them with pumpkin seeds. Super moist and so good.

    • Thank YOU! I am so happy to read your feedback. We all have different sweet tooth so you did well by adjusting the amount of sweetener. Thanks for sharing. XOXO Carine.

    • Thank you for another lovely feedback ! I agree, this is the best to fix those fall spices cravings without the carbs. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    I thought it was better than any other “non keto” pumpkin bread! Seriously, my husband couldn’t even tell it wasn’t made with all purpose flor and granulated sugar hahaha. I added 1/4 cup of Lilly’s chocolate chips, and the walnuts. Simple to die for! Thanks for posting this and every other recipe!

    • That is what I love to read 🙂 Thanks so much for trying my recipes. I love the chocolate chips and walnuts addition, clever! Thanks for being here with me. Enjoy the recipe around. XOXO Carine.

    • Love your spices! Thanks so much for trying my recipe I am happy you love the bread as much as I do. XOXO Carine.

  19. Beware if you haven’t used coconut oil before–our family got so ill with stomach distress and bathroom issues for 4 days after eating 2 slices each! It was moist and delicious–but will try again with BUTTER this time!!

    • It seems that you have an intolerance to one of the ingredient in this recipe and I am very sorry to hear that! I hope you feel better soon. This said, the recipe is delicious with butter too so choose your best option next time ! Feel better soon, Carine.

  20. In Keto, I can have 2 slices of this pumpkin bread in a meal, right? As excess would kick me out of ketosis.

    • In Keto you are going out of ketosis if you overdo your macro but we all have different macro based on our age, size and goals. So I can’t reply how many slices you can eat you have to see if it tick to your daily macro and meal plan based on the other food you eat in the same day. But the recipe is 100% keto ! Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    I made the pumpkin bread today and it is truly one of the most moist keto breads I have made. I added some chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds on top for fun. I highly highly recommend trying this recipe out!!!! All Carine’s recipes are Sweet as Honey ????????????????

  22. 5 stars
    I don’t want to have a sugar bread as I would like to eat it for my lunch with some meat/veg curry. For that can I just remove the sweetener and add salt, chilli powder?

      • How much of grated cheddar can I use to replace the sweetener? Also I am not getting e-mails on your responses to my comments, please check if there is any issue.

        • I didn’t try so I am unsure try 1/3 cup. And yes you get email to inform you that I reply to you on the blog otherwise you won’t be able to know that I reply to you 🙂 Or you will have to check the blog post every day until you see my response. This is set up for your convenience. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    I made the pumpkin bread today and it turned out great. Very moist and it sliced well. I will make it a little sweeter next time, though, because I have a sweet tooth. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Thanks ! I am so happy that you enjoy the recipe. I can’t wait to read your next recipe feedback. Enjoy the sweet treats around here. XOXO Carine.
