Melt coconut oil and butter.

Beat eggs, sweetener, pumpkin puree, sour cream, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice until combined.

Slowly add coconut oil and butter to the mixture.

In a separate bowl, combine coconut flour, salt, and baking powder.

Add flour mixture to other ingredients and mix well.

Pour into 2 greased mini loaf pans or cover pan with parchment paper. To make a full regular loaf you would need to double the recipe.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for approx 45 minutes or until a fork inserted in center comes out clean.

Melt butter and add powdered Lakanto.

Pour heavy whipping cream over mixture until it thins out. Can add more or less if needed.

How to Serve This Bread

I top my Paleo Pumpkin Bread with a little sprinkle of homemade powdered sugar to finish it off, but that step is purely optional.

I’d also recommend serving it up alongside some freshly brewed Chemex Coffee for some mighty happy family members during the holidays. Or for the kids, serve it up with my homemade Cashew Milk.

Let cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then use a knife to loosen the bread from the sides of the pan. Remove the loaf from the pan by lifting the parchment paper. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
  4. Notes: Glass and metal pans bake at different temperatures. If you have only a metal loaf pan to work with, try reducing the baking time to 45 to 50 minutes.

How would you rate Pumpkin Bread with Toasted Coconut?

I make this pumpkin bread all the time - this is a great recipe!! It's an excellent way to use up extra pumpkin puree if you've opened a can for something else.

What is Coconut Sugar?

Traditionally, pumpkin bread is made with brown sugar and/or maple syrup, both of which have a high glycemic index (white sugar 65, maple syrup 54 ). However, I prefer coconut sugar, which is made from the sap of flower buds from the coconut palm tree, for two reasons: 1) it has a lower glycemic index (35) and 2) it tastes just like brown sugar and has very delicious caramel-like flavor. On the other hand, brown sugar is a combination of white sugar and molasses, which makes it even more unhealthy.

The other week I shared a mouth watering Keto Pumpkin Pie and today I’m back with more Low Carb Pumpkin Goodness for you – Low Carb Pumpkin Bread.

I’m absolutely loving my first Northern Hemisphere Autumn/Fall here in Ireland.

The air is crisper, which is welcome after a hotter than expected Summer. The mornings and evenings are darker, all the leaves are changing to glorious shades of reds, yellows and oranges.

And, of course, pumpkins are starting to pop up everywhere. So, I just couldn’t resist getting straight to work to create another easy keto fall treat for you.

How To Make Keto Pumpkin Bread

As you’ll see, this Keto Pumpkin Bread is really easy to prepare. Start by gathering together your 6 ingredients, preheating your oven and lining a baking tray with well greased baking paper.

This is really important, to be sure of easy removal of your baked low carb pumpkin bread when it’s done.

Melt the butter and the pour it into a bowl. You could use 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil if you’d prefer a dairy free pumpkin bread.

Then, whisk in the pumpkin puree and eggs until smooth.

Once smooth, add the cinnamon. You can include a half a teaspoon or a full teaspoon, depending on how much of a cinnamon flavour you want.

Then, add the stevia or your sweteener of choice. I find a quarter of a cup to be sweet enough, but feel free to add more for a sweeter low carb pumpkin bread.

Finally, fold through the coconut flour, a quarter of a cup at a time. You’ll find that baking with coconut flour is completely different to baking with regular flour.

It’s incredibly absorbent, so you’ll find that in no time the coconut flour has absorbed the other ingredients, creating the perfect pumpkin bread mixture.

Move the mixture into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

Remove the Pumpkin Bread from the oven, allow to cool then remove from the baking tin. Enjoy as is or served with butter, whipped cream or cream cheese.
