Coconut & Pumpkin Bread, Slimsweet Monk Fruit, Healthy Slice Recipe

Coconut and Pumpkin Bread with SlimSweet™ Monk Fruit


This is such a moist, tasty and healthy slice recipe, you can tell from the photo, that we could not even wait till the Coconut & Pumpkin Bread had cooled to slice it…we were so eager to taste it…and we were not disappointed.  Sweetened with our SlimSweet Monk Fruit, its chocolatey, sugar free and very moreish!

Coconut & Pumpkin Bread


  • 250g piece of pumpkin, raw
  • 4 x 50g eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup SlimSweet™ Monk Fruit sweetener
  • ½ cup (100g) coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup (70g) coconut flour
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • ¼ cup (35g) cacao nibs
  • 2 tbspn sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp pepita seeds


  1. Cut the pumpkin into even size pieces and steam for 15 minutes until tender.  Drain thoroughly and mash until smooth.  Reserve and cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 180°C  (160°C Fan-Forced).  Grease an 11.5 x 21.5cm loaf pan and line bottom and sides with baking paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, vanilla, SlimSweet™ Monk Fruit and coconut oil.  Stir in the mashed pumpkin and add the coconut flour, bicarb, mixed spice, cacao nibs and half the sunflower seeds.    Mix until just combined.  Spoon mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle with pepitas and the remaining sunflower seeds.
  4. Bake your bread for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean or with a few crumbs.  Leave bread in the loaf pan for 15 minutes before turning out, top side up, to cool on a wire rack.  If you can wait until it is completely cool before cutting, you will get a cleaner slice..see if you can!

TIP:  This is a great cake to cut and freeze as individual slices. Perfect to take to work for morning tea or after a great workout, in the gym or on the courts!!
