The Best Keto Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts


Did someone say fall? Fall means drinking coffee, eating all things pumpkin all while snuggled in an over-sized comfy sweater. In my opinion, fall is the best time of the year and it just got even better with my new Keto and Paleo Pumpkin Bread with Walnuts.

Pumpkin Bread

I caught my husband in the kitchen the other night shoving this pumpkin bread in his mouth all while saying, “I can’t believe this is Keto.” I am not sure the carb count will be on point if you end up eating the whole loaf in one sitting, so pace yourself. It is so good you really won’t want to stop eating it.

Pumpkin Bread

This bread is made with super simple and clean ingredients. In addition, it is extremely moist and will melt in your mouth. I love making it for Thanksgiving along with whipping up on a cool crispy weekend in October. Eloise, my 5 year old even requests that I put it in her lunch box.

Don’t waste your time wishing you could have pumpkin bread while living Paleo and Keto. This recipe I created will all your dietary needs while still being craveable and delicious.

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.

1.Monk Fruit Sweetener

2. Swerve Sweetener

3. Organic Stevia


Can I add the nuts or even chocolate chips to this pumpkin bread?

Absolutely. I add the nuts on the top because I like how they get a little a crisp. If you want the nuts to be more even throughout, simply add them to the batter instead of using as a topping. If you want to add a little more flavor, my daughter loves when I add 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips.

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.

  • could you clarify the paleo baking powder?

    • Use equal parts 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp cream of tarter

  • Keto Pumpkin Bread. This is a new favorite. As I was mixing this up it didn’t seem like it would turn out but the baked texture is perfect. The batter is more like mortar…very thick. I’m excited to try some other keto baked goods. Thank you. Love your recipes. Love your style. ❤

    • I am so glad you like this. Yes, the batter is a bit thick, but once it cooks, it turns out amazing.

  • Has anyone made this with Swerve? I have never bought Monk fruit sweetener b/c every time I eat something with monk fruit in it, I HATE the after taste … it just tastes artificial to me. I also thought it was supposed to be a lot sweeter than stevia? If someone has made it with swerve, did you use the same amount or more? This looks so good! I cannot wait to make it!

    • Yes…Swerve is awesome! I like Monk Fruit, but the Swerve taste great too.

  • Made this last night for my small group! It turned out so good!!!!! I used organic stevia which has a little bit of a funky aftertaste, but it was still delicious! I want to try using coconut sugar next time!

    • So happy to hear. I bet the coconut sugar would be a great touch.

  • What are the carbs per serving?

    • I will have the nutritional facts up for most all my recipes sometimes next week. So sorry for the wait!
