Unlike the traditional pumpkin bread, the ones that we are all obsessed with, this version is much healthier. With a few alternative ingredients, this healthy pumpkin bread is just as delicious and packed with fall flavors.

Paleo and Gluten Free Pumpkin bread

Instead of regular flour, I used coconut flour which makes this pumpkin recipe is gluten free, paleo, grain free and low carb.

Additionally, I substituted white sugar with pure maple syrup. It is unrefined sugar which is paleo friendly. You can also use honey or coconut sugar.

 

Keto Friendly Pumpkin Bread

As far as sweetener, I used maple syrup for this pumpkin bread recipe. If you are following Ketogenic diet, you can substitute for monk fruit extract, keto maple syrup or stevia.

 

Flavors and Toppings you “Spice” up this Pumpkin Bread

For this recipe, I used the classic pecans and pumpkins seeds for the crunch. You could also use:

  • Chocolate chips
  • Banana slices (like this one)
  • Cinnamon Apples
  • Cinnamon Sugar

 

What if I don’t like Bananas

I have some of you requesting  banana-free recipes.  I got you with my latest pumpkin chocolate chips muffins, which does not have bananas.

For this paleo pumpkin bread recipe, I used one mashed bananas for two purposes:

  1. Natural sweetener
  2. Gooey texture

However, if you are not a fan of bananas, try replacing with the same amount of

  • apple sauce
  • sweet potato puree
  • or more pumpkin puree.

 

Note: Add 3 to 4 table spoon of coconut sugar. to replace the sugar content from bananas. Or you can omit the coconut sugar for a low sugar pumpkin bread.

 

What is the Perfect Sweet Level for Healthy Pumpkin Bread

Everyone has different sweet taste. So that’s why I am here to make it customizable for you!

With the maple syrup and ripe banana, this healthy pumpkin bread is sweet enough to my liking. However, if you want to make it more like a dessert, here is what you can do.

1. Add extra maple syrup or honey

Maple syrup and honey are both Paleo Friendly. I honestly love them both and consider them interchangeable.

You can use equal amount of either sweetener option. They will result in the same texture to this pumpkin bread.

2. Add 2 table spoon to ¼ cup coconut sugar.

Coconut sugar is also paleo friendly.

3. Add Stevia or Monk Fruit extract.

These are low cab and Keto Friendly sweeteners.

 

How to Serve Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

There are so many ways you can enjoy this gluten free paleo umpkin bread. Either a healthy breakfast or the perfect fall dessert.

1. Top with yogurt and granola

2. Top with your favorite nut or seed butter

3. Microwave it for 10 seconds then top with a scoop of ice cream

4. Or you can just eat it as it is because it is loaded with pecans and pumpkins already

 

How to Store Paleo Pumpkin bread

Refrigerator: Once the paleo pumpkin bread loaf completely cools, store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days. You can either slice them up or leave it as a whole loaf.

Freezer: Yes you can freeze it! They freeze really well too. Once it cools completely. Slice the pumpkin bread loaf and wrap the slices in a plastic wrap. Or you can place them in an airtight container without wrapping. Instead, leave a little room between each slices so they won’t be hard to break apart when you are ready to enjoy them.

Since this paleo pumpkin bread is moist and gooey, you barely need any time to thaw it before enjoying. They almost taste like a pumpkin ice cream bar!

Mind Blown.

      Hi Elen,

      It is smooth nut butter. You can add any kind you like if you are okay consuming nuts 🙂
