FLOURS TO USE FOR THIS KETO PUMPKIN BREAD
So, we will be using a combination of almond flour, coconut flour, and psyllium husk to make this bread low carb and gluten free.
And as you may have noticed, you can substitute the psyllium husk for an equal amount of coconut flour.
But with that said, you CANNOT substitute coconut flour for anything else in the recipe because coconut flour has unique properties. Therefore, there isn't another ingredient that can replace it.
Having said that, if you want to, you can substitute the almond flour. To do this, you can use an equal amount of walnut flour or sunflower seed flour.
If you follow these flour tips, your pumpkin bread will turn out incredible!
SWEETENING THIS KETO PUMPKIN BREAD
So, we will be using Granular Swerve to add a touch of sweetness to the bread without adding any carbs or calories.
With that said, another option you have is to use Lakanto's Monk Fruit sweetener. Monk fruit is essentially the same thing as Swerve and will work just as well in this keto pumpkin bread recipe.
As always though, I do not recommend using Stevia or a Stevia-based sweeteners in place of the Monk Fruit, or Swerve.
Stevia products tend to be way sweeter than those sugar free sweeteners, and if you use it in place of them, it will ruin the taste of the bread.
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN BREAD KETO
The process of making almond flour pumpkin bread is super easy, and all you have to do is a little mixing.
Then, you'll just have to wait for about 50 minutes for the bread to bake in the oven. But it is time well spent since the delicious aroma of pumpkin spice will fill your kitchen.
So if you're ready for the best keto fall recipe you can make, let's get to it!
STEP 1: MAKING THE BREAD BATTER
First things first, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (165°C) and line a 9x5 in. (23x13cm) loaf pan with parchment paper.
Then take out a large bowl and add the coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium husk, swerve, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt. Give these ingredients a good mix to combine them.
Next, add the eggs, pumpkin puree, melted butter, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract to a separate bowl and mix them until combined.
Once mixed, add the dry ingredients into the bowl and stir everything together until a smooth batter forms.
STEP 2: BAKING THE PUMPKIN BREAD
Now that you have a batter, transfer it into the lined loaf pan and evenly smooth out the top with a rubber spatula.
Next, sprinkle the top with some pumpkin seeds - if you want - and bake for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.
Then let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes and transfer it to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Finally, slice your keto pumpkin loaf, top it with a slab of butter, and enjoy!
