How To Make Keto Low-Carb Pumpkin Cookies
This is the easiest 1-bowl sugar-free pumpkin 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.
Combining 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, to 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.
Baking The Sugar-Free Pumpkin Cookies
These sugar-free pumpkin cookies bake really fast, about 12 minutes on a greased baking rack covered with parchment paper.
First, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
Then, place the cookie ball onto the baking sheet and press each ball to roughly flatten it into a thick cookie.
Bake until the cookies are crispy and golden brown on the sides.
Keto-Friendly Frosting Options
You can of course use my Keto Chocolate Frosting on this recipe, but if you prefer a classic white sugar-free frosting, I have two options for you:
Cream Cheese Frosting
This simple light and fluffy cream cheese keto frosting are highly recommended to create the best keto pumpkin cream cheese cookies ever! All you need to make it are:
- powdered erythritol
- cream cheese
- 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.
You can keep these unfrosted cookies for a week in a cookie jar. If you have frosted them, keep them in the fridge for up to 4 days.
You can also freeze them and keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw them in the fridge for a few hours.
