Paleo Pumpkin Bread
Keto, Paleo, Gluten-Free, 10 Ingredients or Less, Easy
Enjoy this moist almond flour-based Paleo Pumpkin Bread packed full of pumpkin flavor this holiday season or when the craving calls!
Gals (and dudes), is it just me or is life moving too fast? I clearly remember putting away the Winter gear what seemed like two months ago, just to bring it back out again!
The Winter escalated real quick here in Wisconsin. We went from sort of warm weather to record-breaking snow falls within a week.
Even though the weather has me thinking about Christmas, I’m still in the Fall spirit with this pumpkin-inspired bread.
My pumpkin bread is perfect in it’s simplest form, but feel free to add in a few special touches, like chopped pecans or walnuts, or even some Paleo-friendly chocolate chips.
You’ll want to read this blog post in its entirety to get all the helpful tips and tricks you’d normally by-pass. Or if you are feeling lucky jump to the recipe below and get started!
Either way, I’d love to hear how your pumpkin bread turned out, so please leave a comment and share it with your friends and family.
How to Make Paleo Pumpkin Bread
This Paleo pumpkin bread is simple to make and only requires basic pantry staples to execute. Fall in love with everyone’s Fall favorite recipe below.
Tip: I typically use parchment paper when baking, for two reasons; less mess and easy to remove. If you don’t have parchment paper my favorite brand of coconut and avocado oil (in spray form) is Chosen Foods.
2. In a large bowl, combine almond and tapioca flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda, sea salt, eggs, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla with a hand mixer on medium speed.
Tip: My favorite hand mixer is from KitchenAid but any hand mixer (or your hands) will do!
3. Place batter into the prepared bread pan and bake in the preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until the top is golden and firm.
Tip: Insert a toothpick into the middle, if it pulls clean it’s done.
4. Remove the bread pan from the oven and cool completely before cutting.
Tip: Allowing the bread to cool completely will avoid crumbling when cut.
How to Store Paleo Pumpkin Bread
If you are lucky there may be a slice or two left by the end of the day. No worries this bread will store fine in an airtight container on the counter or in the fridge for 3 days. If after 3 days you wish to eat a slice, check it to make sure it is safe to eat.
Pumpkin bread can be stored in the freezer pre-sliced for a month in a freezer-safe and airtight container. The best way to freeze homemade sliced bread is to wrap each individual slice in parchment paper. While this is cumbersome, you’ll see it’s much easier to pull slices out!
Essential Equipment to Make Paleo Pumpkin Bread
Bread Pan – A standard sized bread pan (5x9x3-inch) is used to shape the bread. The time it takes to cook the bread correlates with the size of the pan.
Hand Mixer – A hand mixer is used to combine all ingredients in one bowl for less mess! Hand mixers are amazing because they get the job done but don’t take up too much space for storage!

Basic Paleo Staples for Making Paleo Pumpkin Bread
Blanched Almond Flour – I purchase Costco’s almond flour, but you can use Bob’s Red Mill or any organic almond flour of your choosing, as long as it’s blanched.
Tapioca Flour – My favorite tapioca flour brand is from Bob’s Red Mill. You can find it at most health food grocers (and even Walmart)!
Coconut Oil – I purchase Costco’s coconut oil, mainly because we use a lot of it, but any coconut oil will work!
Pure Maple Syrup – Local syrup is best!
Vanilla – I use my Homemade Vanilla Extract Recipe for all my baking needs!
Baking Soda – This is a staple is almost all households, it’s not only great for baking but also cleaning!
Sea Salt – Everyone has their opinion on the best sea salt, so use whatever’s in your kitchen.
Eggs – Local pasture-raised eggs are always best!
