Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread

This is pumpkin bread without the guilt! A cream cheese layer with a slight hint of orange sits smack dab in the middle of each slice of this firm pumpkin spice bread. It’s super indulgent yet also keto, and with only 4 grams of net carbs per slice, what’s not to love?
