When it comes to fall baking there is nothing quite like pumpkin! From muffins to lattes, this is one of the seasons most beloved flavors. No matter what diet or lifestyle you subscribe to, there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to have your pumpkin and eat it too. While other recipes for fall treats depend on wheat-based flours and added sugar, my recipe for the Greatest Healthy Pumpkin Bread is packed with not just flavor but delicious and nutritious ingredients.

So, I don’t think I need to tell you this but… you can’t make pumpkin bread without the pumpkin. Crazy, right? That said, I always encourage you guys to take my recipes and make them your own and this is a great one for adaptation. If you want to make this bread with sweet potato or butternut squash, it will come out just as moist and delicious. If you want to make this healthy pumpkin bread from canned pumpkin puree or freshly roasted pumpkin go ahead! I used canned pumpkin puree as it’s a time saver, but feel free to use what you can get your hands on. For those that want to make your own pumpkin puree from scratch Gemma has a great recipe for it! Do I have to use coconut flour, or can I use other gluten-free flours? So the main ingredients in this low carb low sugar pumpkin bread are pumpkin, eggs, coconut flour, spices, Lakanto maple syrup and coconut oil. The bread is made in one bowl by combing the wet ingredients, then the dry, then putting the two together. I get a lot of questions asking about flour substitutes and often times there are alternatives. For this recipe, there is no alternative to coconut flour. I chose this flour specifically as it’s super low in carbs, has added fiber, and is not nut based for those that have nut allergies. I did choose to make this pumpkin bread with eggs, but it can be made vegan by substituting the eggs in the recipe with flax eggs. How To Make A Keto Cream Cheese Glaze One of the reasons people have so much success on a ketogenic diet is because there is such a wide range of rich, high-fat foods that are both nourishing and satiating. I don’t know about you, but I love tangy creamy cream cheese — especially when added into baked goods and frostings. This keto cream cheese glaze is only 3 ingredients, super rich, and still 100% sugar-free. I love this on all kinds of sweets, and of course, slathered on top of my healthy pumpkin bread.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until a thick, even batter is formed. Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes. This will help the coconut flour to absorb the liquid batter adding nice texture to the finished bread. Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature before glazing. While the bread is cooling make the glaze.Cream Cheese Glaze:In a microwave safe bowl combine the cream cheese, Lakanto syrup and vanilla.
