The best Maple Pecan Bread with Cream Cheese Icing! An easy one-bowl bread recipe made with maple syrup and studded with pecans then topped with the must luscious cream cheese icing. Delicious!



  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (see notes)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract (optional)
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans and a few more for on top 

For the Icing:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened 
  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp maple extract (optional)
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a bread pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, maple extract, almond butter, and almond milk until smooth.
  3. Add in the almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt and mix until well combined. Fold in pecans.
  4. Pour the batter into the bread pan and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  5. For the icing: in a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat together the cream cheese, butter, and extracts until smooth. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, mixing until smooth.
  6. Once the bread has cooled, spread the icing on top and sprinkle on additional pecans. Serve and enjoy. 


  1. This recipe is not a super sweet bread so if you would prefer a sweeter bread I would recommend adding in about 1/3-1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar to the dough.
  2. The maple extract will add the super “maple” flavor like in a maple doughnut but the bread will taste delicious without it as well.
  3. Make sure to store in an air-right container in the fridge (cream cheese needs to be refrigerated).
