I'm so excited about my Pumpkin bread experiment! Last week when I posted my Keto Bread recipe I had mentioned that I wanted to try it with pumpkin and I finally did! The recipe uses the regular Keto Bread as the base and just layers a few things on top
Preheat Oven to 390° F
Grease loaf pan, I greased my pan with Fatworks Pork Lard which I have been using a lot lately!
- 1 1/2 cup almond flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 4 tablespoons butter (I used Kerrygold Salted)
- 6 eggs
- I also added a little pink salt
Use a mixer to blend until batter is smooth.
Now for the pumpkin add-ins...
- 1/4 of a can of Trader Joe's Organic Pumpkin
- 1 to 3 packets of Stevia depending on your desired sweetness (I used 1, but it really wasn't sweet at all so next time I will try 2)
- 1 TBSP of Pumpkin Spice seasoning
Use a mixer to blend the pumpkin add-ins with the rest of the mix until smooth. You could probably just dump everything up above in at the same time, but I split it up.
Then pour into greased loaf pan and put in oven.
Bake for 25-30min (or until toothpick comes out clean)
The macro breakdown for the regular bread was:
- 1629 calories per loaf
- 136 calories per slice (makes 12 slices)
- 13.7g carbs per loaf (1g carbs per slice)
- 148.8g fat per loaf (12.4g fat per slice)
- 59.8g protein per loaf (5g protein per slice)
As I mentioned in my last post, I didn't do this math, it was from the original recipe. Also depending on what Almond Flour you use, it can vary a bit. Trader Joe's has 1 less carb per serving than Bob's Red Mill, so you may want to do some research!
But using the above numbers here is my stab at calculations. Keep in mind I hate math and I hate measuring macros:)
As you can see 1/4th of the can has less than 6g of net carbs, so if you divide that by 12 slices, you are only adding .5g of carbs to each slice from the above totals.
1 TBSP of the Pumpkin Spice seasoning has 3.9g of carbs, so divide that by 12 and you get .325. So let's make it easy and say each slice has under 2g of net carbs!
You will have to experiment with the sweetness for your own palette and you could also add more pumpkin mix if you want it to really taste pumpkin-like because this is pretty subtle. I will likely try 1/2 a can of pumpkin mix and 2 packets of Stevia next time around, of course that will bump up the carb count a bit, but as far as holiday baked goods go it is hard to beat!
