Did someone say fall? Fall means drinking coffee, eating all things pumpkin all while snuggled in an oversized comfy sweater. In my opinion, fall is the best time of the year and it just got even better with my new Keto Pumpkin Bread with Maple Cream Cheese Icing. This bread is made with super simple and clean ingredients. In addition, it’s extremely moist and will melt in your mouth. I love making it for Thanksgiving along with whipping it up on a cool crispy weekend in October.
Ingredients needed for this Keto Pumpkin Bread:
- Almond flour
- Coconut flour
- Monk Fruit Sweetener for Keto OR Coconut Sugar for Paleo
- Baking powder
- Pumpkin puree
- Dairy-free cream cheese
- Monk fruit maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Vegan butter
- Almond milk, unsweetened
Which sweeteners are Keto and Paleo compliant for this Pumpkin Bread?
Below are my favorite go-to sweeteners. Not only are these considered Keto, but they are also complaint when following a Paleo diet.
Tips & Tricks For The Maple Cream Cheese Icing
- Want a thicker Icing? If you want a thicker creamy topping, add an additional 1/3 cup of the powdered swerve. It will be a little sweeter, but it will be a lot thicker. This is an optional step.
- Keeping it Keto: To keep it keto friendly, serve it with your favorite berries such as, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.
- How Else To Use This Icing: If you have any leftover you can also use this dip as a drizzle over pancakes, french toast or even oatmeal.
Does this pumpkin bread freeze well?
Yes! I love making a few loaves and freezing for a later date. I will simply wrap the bread in plastic wrap, foil, or freezer paper after it has cooled completely. Place in the freezer and it will last up to 3-4 months. You can freeze with the icing, or freeze without and make the icing when ready to serve or eat.

Maple Cream Cheese Icing (Dairy-Free)
- 4 oz dairy-free cream cheese I use Kite Hill
- 1 cup Powdered Swerve*
- 2 tablespoons vegan butter room temp
- 1 tablespoon monk fruit maple syrup
- 2 tablespoon almond milk unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350F and line an 8x5 loaf pan with parchment paper or cooking spray.
- Set out 2 separate bowls, one for the dry ingredients and one for the wet ingredients.
- To the first bowl add the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the second bowl and whisk together until combined. Carefully fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined.
- Pour the combined batter into the prepped loaf pan. Bake between 45-55 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the middle is set. If the top is browning too fast, simply cover with aluminum foil and continue cooking. Allow cooling completely before adding on the cream cheese icing.
- Top the bread with cream cheese icing and crushed walnuts. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks. Freeze up to 3-4 months.
- Place the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whip using a handheld mixer.
- Mix for 40 seconds or until combined and smooth.
- Store any leftovers in an airtight container for a week.
- For the icing, add a little more or less powdered swerve to get the consistency you like. By adding more you will get a thicker consistency.
- Paleo baking powder (1 tsp baking soda, 1 teaspoon cream of tarter)
- Feel free to sub coconut sugar for Monk Fruit sugar for Paleo
- If you are not dairy-free, feel free to use real cream cheese.
- You can also use real maple syrup in place of the monk fruit maple syrup.
