How to make keto low-carb pumpkin cookies?
This is the easiest 1-bowl keto cookie recipe.
All you need to make these soft, pumpkin spice keto cookies are a few ingredients:
- Pumpkin puree – canned pumpkin puree with no added sugar or additive works the best. Learn how to make your own pumpkin puree.
- Vanilla extract
- Coconut oil – always measure the oil melted or replace it with melted grass-fed butter.
- Pumpkin pie spices – see recipe card to make your own.
- Almond flour – use fine almond flour, not an almond meal, or the cookies will be gritty.
- Coconut flour – make sure you measure this precisely, using the scoop and level method to avoid adding too much coconut flour that could dry out the cookies.
- Egg – the recipe works with egg replacements like a flax egg. See note in the recipe card below.
- Erythritol – or any sugar-free keto sweetener you like except xylitol! Xylitol makes cookies fragile and extremely soft.
- Baking powder – this is a gluten-free pumpkin cookie recipe, so make sure your baking powder has no gluten added! Another option is to use half the amount of baking soda to replace baking powder.
Combine the ingredients
All you have to do to make this cookie dough in less than 10 minutes is to combine the wet ingredients to dry ingredients. First, add all the wet ingredients, at the same temperature, in a small bowl and beat for roughly 1 minute or until combined.
Then, in another large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Finally, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the cookie dough forms. To convert this recipe into a keto pumpkin chocolate chip cookies recipe, simply add 1/3 cup sugar-free dark chocolate chips into the batter.
Bake the cookies
These cookies bake really fast, about 12 minutes on a greased baking rack covered with parchment paper. First, preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Then, place the cookie ball onto the baking sheet and press each ball to roughly flatten it into a thick cookie. Bake until crispy and golden brown on the sides.

- powdered erythritol

- softened butter
This is for pumpkin cream cheese lovers. However, if you are dairy-free, use the recipe below.
Dairy-free keto frosting
You can replace the cream cheese frosting above with dairy-free frosting. It contains fewer calories and net carbs too!
Simply mix 1/2 cup powdered erythritol with 1 tablespoon melted butter and 2 tablespoons coconut cream (or heavy cream if not dairy-free).
It makes a thin cookie frosting without cream cheese, as seen in the picture below.

Keto cream cheese cookie frosting
- 4 oz Cream Cheese
- 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- ⅓ cup Powdered Erythritol add more for a sweeter frosting
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly grease the paper with coconut oil. Set aside.
- In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat egg, melted coconut oil, pumpkin puree, and vanilla. Set aside.
- In another large mixing bowl, combine flours: almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
- Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until it forms a cookie dough.
- Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie, roll dough into a ball between your hands, and place on the prepared baking sheet leaving 1 thumb space between each cookie dough ball.
- Repeat until all the dough has been used. Then use the palm of your hand to roughly flatten each cookie ball into a thick cookie. The side may crack slightly, but that's ok. If you want, you can pat the sides with wet fingers to smoothen the sides.
- Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown on the side.
- Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes then slide a spatula under each cookie to transfer them onto a cooling rack.
- Cool completely down before frosting.
Cream cheese Frosting
- In a medium-size mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with butter using an electric beater. Beat for about 1 minute, until creamy and fluffy.
- Stop beater and add powdered erythritol. Beat again to combine.
- Add a dollop of frosting on top of each cookie and place the cookies in the fridge for 1 hour to set.
- Store leftover frosting in an airtight container for up to 1 week and serve as a keto sweet treat or snack.
