Stuffed Low Carb Pumpkin Bread Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

The first two things that come to mind when I think of October are 1. Halloween and 2. PUMPKINS! Unfortunately biting into a pumpkin like an apple probably isn’t gonna be the most appetizing thing in the world (I’ve tried it…NOT WORTH IT). What IS it worth though is the low carb pumpkin bread we’re about to make so lets get to it!

Start by taking out a large bowl then add into it 3 large eggs (a little kitchen hack here is if you get a piece of shell use the big half of your shell to scoop it out, it’ll act like a magnet). Continue with 3 ounces of milk or milk substitute, 1/2 cup of coconut flour, 1 cup of almond flour, 2 scoops of my Baking Protein Powder that you can purchase in store/online at Vitamin Shoppe or by clicking here, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice, 1 cup of pure pumpkin, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of a sweetener, 1 1/2 tablespoons of a sugar free syrup, 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter, and a pinch of salt.

Mix everything together ( use a hand mixer to make things easier)!

After it’s mixed it’ll turn out pretty thick so don’t worry! Next take out a bread dish or pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, add 3/4 of your mix into it, and smooth out the top.

Now we’re gonna stuff it so get another bowl and add into that one 4 tablespoons of a reduced fat or fat free cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of a sweetener, 1 large egg, 1/2 scoop of my Baking Protein Powder, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix everything together until it’s nice and smooth then pour that on top of your mix. Add the rest of your mix on top of that and do your best to close it in by spreading it around. Last bake it on 350F/176C for around 45-50 minutes or until the top has a nice golden brown color!

I don’t know about you guys but I usually spread cream cheese on top of my pumpkin bread anyways so having it stuffed inside is like some sort of weird fantasy of mine thats been fulfilled and now my part of me feels empty. Seriously though this bread is INSANE!!!

  • I was wondering if you could make these muffins instead of bread. I am building and paleo. Of course this would be an awesome treat instead of conventional treats during the holidays. Thank you

  • Tried this recipe for the second time and absolutely love it! I made some small adjustments by cutting down to 1/3 cup of coconut flour and putting in an extra 2/3 cup of protein powder, also doubled the cinnamon because I love my cinnamon flavor with pumpkin! I also put some plain Greek yogurt in with the cream cheese layer, and about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Ate several pieces when it came out of the oven, and it was scrumptious, especially with the goeey chocolate chips. Keep doing what your doing Protein Chef, I give this recipe 10/10!

  • Hi! How is it if I change the pumpkin in the recipes for sweet potato? I’m from Norway, and pumpkin is expensive and hard to get… looking at your proteinbreads etc. where you use pumpkin – would really like to make them.

    Btw. Love your recipes!! Made several, all have been soooo tasty 😀 never stop!
