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?

For the Bread
Preheat the oven to 325℉.
Line two loaf pans with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil.
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients, almond and coconut flours, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl, beat or whisk the 5 eggs, pumpkin puree, powdered monkfruit, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice. Slowly add the melted coconut oil and ghee to the mixture.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until a batter is formed.
Pour 1/4 of the batter into each loaf pan.
Spoon half of the cream cheese mixture on top of these layers.
Pour 1/4 of the batter over both cream cheese layers.
Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
Cool bread in pans for 10 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack before serving. Enjoy!
