Pumpkin Spice Bread Recipe (gluten, grain, dairy, sugar free) Follow Me on Pinterest

I love pumpkin bread. As a matter of fact, I love all things pumpkin! I have been craving pumpkin bread this season, but wanted to make a new version of it. You can find my original (and delicious, if I do say so myself) recipe for pumpkin bread here. This version fits more of my dietary needs now that I am lower carb and eating no sugar at all, not even non-sugar sweeteners like stevia. The coconut cream concentrate has a lot of natural sweetness in it, but if you want yours a little sweeter, feel free to add a couple tablespoons of sweetener of your choice.

This bread is smooth and soft, with an almost creamy texture if you warm it up. The smooth texture comes from the coconut butter and pureed pumpkin. Full of pumpkin spice flavor, I add a little extra cinnamon for a boost in spice. I use Vietnamese cinnamon, which is regarded as the best in the world. Read about why I love cinnamon (and 9 reasons cinnamon is good for you) here. Top your warm slice with some grass-fed butter or ghee and it is pure heaven!

Depending on the type of coconut butter and coconut flour you use, you may need a tad less or a tad more coconut flour. Start with the 2 rounded tablespoons and see what the batter looks like. Add a little more if needed. For one of my batches, I needed a total of 3 tablespoons.

Quick note about “coconut cream concentrate” and “coconut butter”, since I get asked this all the time.

Whenever I refer to those two terms in my recipes, it means the product that is super finely ground coconut meat, which has a consistency similar to a nut butter. It’s not referring to coconut milk or coconut cream (the liquid beverage-type products), and it’s not referring to those vegan “butters” that often use coconut oil in them.

You cannot substitute dairy butter for coconut butter, nor can you substitute coconut oil for coconut butter.

Please read this post where I discuss all the differences between coconut products in an effort to clear up the confusion that is circulating around the Web.

  3. Hi. I just wanted to check. Are these imperial or metric measurements?
    I live in Australia and can’t wait to make this when the weather cools down a bit :) it’s a bit hot to have to oven on at the moment.
    Thanks
