45 Keto Pumpkin Recipes: Satisfy Both Sweet & Savory Cravings


Are you searching for low carb sugar free pumpkin recipes that won’t derail your ketogenic lifestyle?

Is pumpkin even safe to eat on a keto diet?

The good news is you can enjoy pumpkin during pumpkin spice everything season — you just have to find the right recipes and be mindful of portion sizes.

As you’ll see in this pumpkin recipe roundup, savoring the flavor of pumpkin season on keto is easier than you may think — and tastier and healthier for you than traditional options you may be missing.

Here’s a sneak peek at what this resource has in store for you:

Before you start pinning your fave recipes, let’s get a few nutritional facts about pumpkin out of the way first.

Is Pumpkin Okay to Eat on a Ketogenic Diet?

You may be surprised to learn pumpkin has several positive attributes that make it keto-friendly.

First, with 7.1g of fiber, the net carbs in fresh pumpkin clock in at 12.7g per cup[*].

While that’s still high for keto, you won’t be eating an entire cup of pumpkin if you’re sticking to the pumpkin recipes in this roundup.

On top of a healthy dose of fiber, pumpkin also delivers electrolytes and micronutrients like[*]:

  • Vitamin A, K, E, and C
  • Folate
  • Choline
  • Iron
  • Potassium
  • Manganese
  • Calcium
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Copper

Similar to sweet potatoes, the orange color in pumpkins means they contain antioxidants like carotenoids and phytonutrients like lycopene.

This specific carotenoid can help improve:

  • Heart health and cell functions
  • Your insulin response
  • Eye health
  • Cancer prevention
  • The strength of your bones

Pumpkins are also low in calories as a cup only contains 83 calories[*].

Despite having a fairly high glycemic index (i.e., the measure of how much a food raises your blood sugar levels), pumpkin has specific polysaccharides that actually help regulate your blood sugar and lipid levels.

This helps balance out the effect pumpkin may have on your blood sugar.

Keep in mind, this is only if you buy the right type of pumpkin.

Unless you’re taking a hayride to a pumpkin patch to pick up your gourd, you’re probably buying your pumpkin straight from a can.

Now, traditional pumpkin recipes call for “pumpkin pie filling” which is not the same as canned, fresh pumpkin puree.

As you can imagine, pumpkin pie filling contains extra sugar and carbs to make those pumpkin pies with graham cracker crusts extra sweet. This mix will definitely cause a spike in your insulin levels and kick you out of ketosis.

Imitation pumpkin flavors and artificially flavored pumpkin spice, such as those added to pumpkin spice lattes (PSL), also have the same negative effect and contain zero of the nutrients and health benefits real pumpkin packs.

Because of this, to truly enjoy pumpkin season in keto you’ll want to stick to fresh or canned pumpkin puree and follow these low carb keto pumpkin recipes.

Good thing they taste even better than those sugar-laced store-bought versions. Especially when you get to start your day with them just like a PSL.

5 Keto Pumpkin Drink Recipes to Start Your Day Right

Trade your artificially made PSL for one of these recipes and you’ll never look back:

#1: Rich and Creamy Pumpkin Spice Keto Mocha Coffee

This creamy pumpkin spice keto mocha coffee is like nothing you’ll find at your local coffee shop.

Rather than a base full of sugar, this drink has healthy medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, which fuel your brain and give you a sustained energy boost.

The MCTs also help keep you full and combat pesky sugar cravings.

So while other pumpkin spice lattes will deplete your energy and send your blood sugar levels through the roof, which only causes you to crave more sugar afterwards, this recipe has the exact opposite effect.

The next low carb version of a PSL uses similar ingredients.

#2: Not Your Average Pumpkin Spice Latte

In this low carb, sugar-free pumpkin spice latte, recipe creator Sarah Hardy also calls on MCTs for help in the form of a grass-fed butter creamer with coconut oil and MCTs.

To create this filling fall drink, Sarah adds a few more ingredients than the first latte on the list, including pumpkin puree, to create those rich flavors.

And she also happens to be the brains behind this next recipe too.

#3: Secret Ingredient Pumpkin Coffee Smoothie

Smoothies more your thing than hot lattes?

This pumpkin coffee smoothie contains the usual suspects like coffee, canned pumpkin puree, and pumpkin pie spice, but it also invites mystery ingredients like frozen okra and cottage cheese to the party.

Did you know okra can help improve blood sugar levels?

It’s also packed with fiber and low in calories, making it a good secret ingredient for anyone with the goal of weight loss on a keto diet.

And if okra sounds too weird for you, you can either ditch it or move on to this next smoothie recipe.

#4: Chai Infused Pumpkin Keto Smoothie

Leanne’s chai infused pumpkin keto smoothie is exactly what you’d expect from a smoothie mashing these two warm flavors together.

Her recipe also includes options like adding MCT oil and collagen if you’re using it as a post-workout smoothie, which helps build a filling drink you can sip on any time of the day.

Anyone in your family can enjoy this recipe since it’s sugar free, low carb, and keto, paleo, and vegan friendly.

This last pumpkin drink recipe is another that works no matter the time.

#5: Homemade Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Creamer

Rather than whipping up an entire pumpkin drink that only makes one serving, make this low carb pumpkin spice creamer and add it to your morning or afternoon coffees for an entire week (or more depending on how much you use).

It’s easy to create since everything goes right into a jar to mix up — no blender or food processor needed — and clean up is a breeze too.

Just combine coconut milk, heavy cream, vanilla extract, canned pumpkin puree, and Swerve (aka erythritol) in a mason jar and you’ll have your very own sugar-free version of the artificially made flavored creamers on the shelves.

Now, if you’re someone who prefers an actual meal to start your day over a drink, this next set of pumpkin recipes is for you.

8 Low-Carb Pumpkin Recipes for Breakfast

On top of seeing pumpkin spice lattes everywhere, breakfast menus and commercials are also pumping out pumpkin flavored everything come cooler temperatures of autumn.

While you may not be able to enjoy those versions, you can create your own low carb treats using these pumpkin breakfast recipes and still have an awesome day:

#1: Keto Pumpkin Pancakes (Two Ways)

Pancakes are usually one of the first foods people cross off their list when switching to a ketogenic diet.

And while most are off-limits, these gluten-free, low carb keto pumpkin pancakes are the exception.

Using a mix of ground flax seeds and hazelnuts instead of traditional white flour, this pancake recipe provides the same great texture and flavors of traditional pancakes without all the carbs, sugar, and bloat.

And this second low carb cream cheese pancake recipe is even more decadent than the first. Requiring simple ingredients you may already have on hand, like cream cheese, butter, and coconut flour, a serving will only set you back 3g of net carbs.

But if you prefer waffles over pancakes, this next recipe has you covered. Also check out our Keto panckes + waffles mix.

#2: Low-Carb Keto Pumpkin Waffles

This low carb keto pumpkin waffle recipe isn’t just a disguise of pancake batter poured into a waffle maker.

It’s more like a waffle with the nutrition dial cranked up to 11.

Not only are you scoring all the benefits of pumpkin, you’re also soaking up 14 servings of 22 different fruits and vegetables — and energy boosting MCTs — in every bite.

How’s that possible?

Thanks to our Micro Greens Powder, you can sneak an extra serving of nutrition into your pumpkin waffle batter and your family may not even notice the healthy boost.

While this powerful powder is no substitute for real fruits and veggies, it can help your body absorb the essential micronutrients you need but may not be getting since drastically limiting your fruit and veggie options to those strictly low carb.

So this booster is like an added layer of protection to ensure you’re not missing anything.

And it’s conveniently wrapped up in delightful pumpkin waffles so you’ll never taste all that nutrition going in.

The next two breakfast staples are as close to the original versions as it gets without all the carbs.

#3: Low Carb Pumpkin Bagels

Bagels with cream cheese are another hard-to-give-up-on-keto item for many people.

Fortunately, you don’t have to ditch the taste or convenience just because you’ve gone low carb.

This low carb pumpkin bagel recipe lets you create a fresh baked batch every week without sacrificing ketosis.

You’ll also find a recipe within that one to make your own pumpkin cream cheese spread, which Sarah the recipe creator makes with Greek yogurt to up the protein and nutrition.

Yes, you can have your bagel and cream cheese once again and practically guilt-free.

But what about oatmeal?

#4: Healthy Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

This healthy pumpkin pie oatmeal may look like regular oatmeal on the surface, but it’s anything but underneath.

In place of carby oats, you’ll find a mix of pumpkin puree, shredded coconut, coconut flour, crushed pecans, chia seeds, and pumpkin pie spice, along with a few other ingredients in this bowl.

These blend together nicely to create the same comforting, filling texture of oatmeal while also keeping you full and satiated for hours thanks to its whole-food ingredient list.

Many of these additions are high in healthy fats (pecans, coconut, chia seeds, for example) and rich in fiber. The net carb amount per serving is lower than your old go-to version since it sits at just 7.5g.

If your breakfast carb cravings lean towards the sweeter stuff, the next few recipes should pique your interest.

#5: Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Breakfast Pockets (aka Low-Carb “Pop-Tarts”)

This keto pumpkin cheesecake breakfast pocket doesn’t remotely resemble a Pop-Tart but it can be the perfect low carb stand in for one.

Balancing both sweet and savory flavors will give you the feeling of cheating with a decadent pastry for breakfast without actually ruining your ketosis goals.

Thanks to mozzarella, almond flour, cream cheese, and egg yolk, these breakfast treats will also keep you feeling full until your next meal, something Pop-Tarts definitely can’t do.

The next easy pumpkin recipe is also an unexpected pumpkin and cheese flavor combo.

#6: Pumpkin Orange Cheese Bread

Using the same ingredients as the last recipe, plus a few more, you can create this eye-catching layered pumpkin orange cheese bread.

If the thought of mixing sweet flavors like orange with cheese sounds weird at first, give this recipe a try and you’ll never question it again.

Each beautiful slice clocks in at 5.6g of net carbs and 28.7g of filling healthy fats. You also get 10g of protein for 300 calories per serving too.

The next keto bread recipe also uses cream cheese smack dab in the center of its pumpkin flavor.

#7: Cream Cheese Pumpkin Bread

This gluten-free low carb cream cheese pumpkin bread recipe is like slicing into a nice warm pumpkin bread and finding a creamy center waiting for you.

And this recipe only takes about 10 minutes of prep time (and another hour of total cook time) to fill your house with the scents of fall and fresh baked bread.

7 Savory Ways to Get Your Pumpkin Fix

With these savory recipes, you’ll get to know the side of pumpkin that behaves more like healthy gourds like spaghetti squash without tempting your sweet tooth.

#1: Low Carb Pumpkin Hummus

Pumpkin hummus may sound weird at first, but it just takes time and one bite to get used to.

The only real difference in the recipe is swapping chickpeas for pumpkin, which means it doesn’t require much to cross over to the low carb zone.

You’ll still have the creamy texture of traditional hummus and all those classic spices without the carb crash.

While pumpkin hummus may be a new take on an old recipe, pumpkin soup may make you look at pumpkin in a whole new light.

The next pumpkin recipe also swaps out a carby staple in favor of this seasonal favorite.

#3: Beanless Pumpkin Keto Chili Recipe

Fall may be the best time of year to enjoy chili.

And while most low carb chili recipes just replace the beans for meat, this pumpkin chili recipe does that and uses pumpkin for an extra layer of seasonal flavor without adding too much sweetness.

Then just add the roasted pumpkin, thyme, and mushrooms cooked in brown butter to your cauliflower “risotto” and voila!

It only takes 30 minutes to make and less than 30 seconds to realize it may be your new go-to pumpkin recipe.

The next recipe also shares similar ingredients, minus the mushrooms, so you could make both at the same time and have nothing go to waste.

#7: Pumpkin Spice Roasted Pecans
