Ingredients for the Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie
- Homemade or store-bought pumpkin puree – Do not buy the pumpkin pie filling because it’s full of sugar and other ingredients.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – You can make the spice blend at home or buy it from the store. My Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe is super easy to make and has so much flavor compared to store bought versions.
- Keto Sweetener – I use an erythritol blend, and it gives the perfect sweetness to the pie without any carbs. How much sweetener to use? A traditional recipe asks for about 1 cup of sugar. I find that using the same amount of erythritol makes the way too sweet. I used 1/2 cup, and it was sweet enough for my taste buds. If you like it sweeter, adjust the sweetener.
- Eggs – Make sure to use large eggs at room temperature to avoid an eggy taste. Eggs help the filling set and make this keto pie rich and velvety.
- Heavy Whipping Cream – choose full fat here for the creamiest keto pumpkin pie that’s silky smooth.
- Vanilla extract – it’s essential to use a high-quality extract.
- A pinch of salt
How to Make Keto Pumpkin Pie?
You’ll start out by making a pie crust. Use my coconut flour keto pie crust recipe. If you’re scared of failing, watch the video and read the instructions carefully. It’s much easier than you think.
It’s essential to bake the crust first before adding the pumpkin pie filling. This way you make sure that the crust doesn’t get soggy. Just cover the crust edges with foil to prevent burning.
After only 10-12 minutes the low carb pie crust is ready. Blind baking the crust is very important when making custard pies (like pumpkin pie). It prevents the crust from becoming moist and soggy. We want the crispy and flaky crust.
Sugar Free Keto Pumpkin Pie Filling
It’s time to make the low carb pumpkin pie filling. There’s no easier thing to do. The filling is ready in literally 3 minutes and it’s made from pumpkin puree, eggs, heavy whipping cream, keto sweetener, and fall spices.
- Gather all the ingredients. Make sure you’re using pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling to avoid carbs and sugar.
- Combine all the ingredients in a a food processor or use a hand mixer.
- Pour the pumpkin pie filling onto the prepared crust, and bake until
What Pumpkin Puree to use?
You probably know that I love to make homemade pumpkin puree. I start by roasting the pumpkin in the oven for about 40-50 minutes, let it cool down, and then puree it in a food processor. I enjoy this process as it warms up my house and brings in the fall smell.
How Long to Bake the Keto Pumpkin Pie Crust?
The secret to a perfect no-fail keto pumpkin pie consists of the way you bake it.
Bake the pie in the oven at 425F for 15 minutes then reduce the oven temperature to 375 and bake for about 30-40 minutes more. You know the pie is ready when it looks shiny and set on top.
Kitchen Tools To Make Keto Pumpkin Pie:
- Food Processor – For making the crust and the filling. I got this one for Christmas last year and I am very happy about it so far. It’s powerful and helps you get everything done in minutes. A hand mixer is perfect too.
- Non-Stick 9-inch Pie Pan – A pyrex glass pie plate is perfect for this pie, but I used a non-stick quick release cake tin.
- Aluminum Foil – To prevent the crust from having burned edges while baking the pie.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – I love to use pumpkin spice blends when I don’t have time to make my own. If you’re looking to make your own pumpkin spice, I have the perfect homemade pumpkin spice recipe for you.
- Erythritol Blend – My favorite keto sweetener of all time. It has no after taste, and it’s extremely low in carbs.
How to Avoid Cracks in Pumpkin Pie?
Usually, the pies crack when they are overbaked. You should take the pie out of the oven when it looks set but it’s still jiggly like jello (but not too much) in the middle. The pie continues to cook as it will cool down at room temperature.
Baking a keto pumpkin pie in a water bath may also reduce the chances of cracking on the top. I’m not a fan of weather baths since it needs a little more work, but I recommend doing it if you really want zero cracks.
How Many Carbs Are in the Keto Pumpkin Pie?

- 319 calories
- 14g carbs
- 6g fiber
- 8g net carbs

If I used a ready made nut pie crust such as walnut or pecan, how long would I bake the pie?
You can replace the crust with any crust you prefer. The baking time for the filling remains the same only if you use the same size pan as I did. For a smaller size increase the baking time by a few minutes. Just check from time to time and when the pie looks set remove it from the oven. Hope this helps.
