Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

Low Carb Pumpkin Bread

Being able to eat a delicious low carb pumpkin bread on a low carb diet is a real treat! It is even better when it can be enjoyed with our low carb cream cheese frosting recipe! So, be sure to check out our super easy and tasty low carb frosting recipe that can be adapted for other great low carb frosting recipes.

This low carb bread is very similar to our low carb carrot cake muffin recipe. The main difference is that we used 100% Pumpkin instead of carrots. Since, pumpkin is a not the lowest in carbs, I used less pumpkin, but enhanced the flavor of pumpkin by adding lots of pumpkin spice and pumpkin spice flavoring.

To maintain the rich pumpkin bread color, I added a little turmeric powder to contribute to the color. However, I do not taste the turmeric at all. So, you get all of the health benefits of pumpkin spice and the health benefits of turmeric. wrapped up in this wonderful low carb almond flour bread recipe.

Tips & Suggestions

  • This is a really moist recipe, so let the muffins cool before removing from the mold. Otherwise, they may not come from the mold properly.
  • If you make our low carb cream cheese frosting recipe, you can adapt it by adding sugar-free pumpkin creamer instead of vanilla.
  • I have refrigerated my leftover low carb pumpkin bread for a couple of days to enjoy for a quick and easy breakfast on-the-go.
