I am super excited about this Keto Nut-Free Pumpkin Seed Bread a whole lot of goodness in this beautiful sandwich bread. The keto bread is light, moist and has pumpkin seeds throughout for extra wholesomeness. 

For those following a keto or low-carb diet, this is a winner of a recipe. I can’t even believe it myself—only 1 net carb per slice. The best part, this keto bread is made without nuts. I promise this recipe will not disappoint.

Bread is the one food you may have thought you would never enjoy again, especially following a low-carb diet. But this bread is sure to satisfy that hearty bread craving we love.

How to make healthy keto bread without nut flour?

If you have searched the internet for keto bread recipes, you may have found that most commonly used flour is almond flour. This flour is rich in protein and low carb and is often used in low carb recipes. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love almond flour, and I use it often in my gluten-free recipes. However, this flour is high in fats and packed with calories.

When I started to develop this keto bread recipe, I wanted a light texture and a bread packed with healthy nutrients. So in this low-carb recipe, I used psyllium husks, ground flaxseed, chia seeds, a splash of olive oil for healthy fats, sesame oil for flavour, eggs and fresh lemon juice. For the extra goodness and texture, I added raw pumpkin seeds.

Are pumpkin seeds healthy?

Did you know that pumpkin seeds are high in valuable nutrients and high in antioxidants? Yes, they are a gem of a seed because they are nutrient-packed.

Moving along…this keto nut-free pumpkin seed bread is light, not dense, the texture is perfect, and it tastes just like a multi-seed bread. It is outstanding! I must admit I am not a bread lover, but this low-carb bread will be a staple in my home from now on.

thank you LA for sharing xx


This was excellent - it rose beautifully and was light yet hearty. I think I will toast the pumpkin seeds for extra flavor before I make it next time. Thanks for the recipe!
