Cooking Tips and Recipe Suggestions
Keto baking can seem a bit overwhelming at first. But it’s really pretty easy once you’ve baked a few Keto treats.
And the best way to start mastering Keto baking is by making pretty easy recipes – like this Keto pumpkin spice loaf.
But to make it even easier, I’m going to share a few tips to make sure the recipe turns out perfectly – even if you’ve never baked before.
First, be sure to use canned pumpkin puree and not canned pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin puree is simply cooked pumpkin that has been blended until smooth.
Pumpkin pie filling is flavored with spices and sweetened with sugar, which is definitely not Keto.
While you can make your own homemade pumpkin puree, in all honesty, it’s easier to buy it canned.
Next, make sure your eggs and melted coconut oil are room temperature.
If your eggs are cold, it could cause your melted coconut oil to solidify. And if your coconut oil is hot, it could scramble your eggs!
If either of those happens, your loaf will be ruined. And you don’t want that.
So, I just take out my eggs from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before I start measuring the ingredients. But if I forget, I just put them in a bowl of warm (not hot) water to help get them to room temperature faster.
And I melt the coconut oil about 30 minutes in advance as well. I just microwave it in 15 second increments until it is just melted.
If the coconut oil is too hot, it’ll take much longer to cool down. However, if it does get too hot, just put it in the refrigerator for a few minutes to help speed up the cooling process. But just remember it’s in there or it might solidify again.
Another important tip is to not substitute the almond flour or coconut flour for any other Keto flours.
I’ve tested this recipe using only almond flour and coconut flour. So, if you don’t have one (or both) flours available, it’s best to skip this recipe.
However, if you don’t have all of the spices in your pantry, you can use pumpkin spice instead. Just be sure to add the salt since pumpkin spice is a salt-free spice blend.
And, of course, be sure to read the back of the package to make sure sugar isn’t an ingredient.
And Don’t Forget Your PSL
Did you really think I would leave you without anything to drink while enjoying your Keto pumpkin spice loaf?
Absolutely not! And here are two PSL recipes for you. (PSL stands for pumpkin spice latte, in case you were wondering.)
However, if you are in the mood for a more decadent treat, then I suggest my Keto Pumpkin Latte that uses real pumpkin and is slightly sweet for those who prefer a creamy but sugar-free coffee drink to enjoy with a slice of my Keto pumpkin spice loaf.
