These easy soft Keto Pumpkin Cookies are delicious meltaway Fall cookies to fix all your cookie cravings on your keto journey! Bonus, these are gluten-free pumpkin cookies too, 100% made of wholesome keto flours and dairy-free ingredients!

How to make keto low-carb pumpkin cookies?

This is the easiest 1-bowl keto cookie recipe.

Low carb pumpkin cookies 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.

  • 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.
Pumpkin pie spices: Combine 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon +  1/2 teaspoon nutmeg + 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger + 1/4 teaspoon allspice or ground cloves.

    My cookies also took about 20 minutes for 2 ” cookies after flattening them slightly, maybe altitude? Do you have any experience with freezing these? They are delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    • Oh yes altitude always impact baking time slightly. I am glad it come out well even if it took you longer. You can absolutely freeze the cookies in a zip bag and thaw the day before eating at room temperature

    Delicious! I made a double batch and now have too many cookies. Can these be frozen? Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  3. 4 stars
    Salt is not listed in the ingredients but is in the instructions! How much salt, please!!!
    Thank you! I can’t wait to make these!!

  4. El Love The ingredientes and would like to make this recipe, however; I can’t find the measurements anywhere. Am I not seeing something? Please help. Other ways I m not going to be able to use this recipe. Thank you.

  5. Hello🧡can I replace Almond flour with anything else as I’m allergic to nuts and seeds 😔

    Thank you so much

    I had leftover pumpkin purée from making a grain-free, sugar-free pumpkin swirl cheesecake. I was trying to find a recipe that I could use it for and stumbled upon this one.

    I had enough to make a double batch, and oh my, I’m sure glad I did. They are absolutely fantastic!!! So very easy too. Thank you!

  7. 5 stars
    Taste good! Only thing when I put for the time you had in the instructions, they were not cooked. I put them in for an additional 20 min

  8. you said to relace eggs with flax there would be information in the “notes” but I don’t see anything

    • Simply make a flax egg to replace the egg. Combine 1 tablespoon of flax meal into 3 tablespoon of lukewarm water. Set aside 10 minutes until egg like texture form then use as an egg int he recipe. The cookies will be more fragile with the vegan option. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  9. I’d love to try a lot of your recipes, but I am allergic to almonds and there are many people with nut allergies. Have you considered using some other flours since there are so many different new ones out there now that are gluten free, including quinoa flour?

    • In all my recipes you can replace almond flour by same amount of sesame flour or sunflower seed flour. Both are keto approved, quinoa flour is not keto so the the recipe won’t be suitable on a keto diet if you use this option. Enjoy, XOXO Carine
