How would you like an easy crustless keto pumpkin pie recipe that makes sticking to your ketogenic, low carb, or gluten-free diet a piece of
cake pie? We are going to ditch the crust, and just keep the essentials including pumpkin, cream, milk, and eggs, plus include all the spices that pumpkin pie is known for like cinnamon and clove, to make a sugar-free pumpkin pie that is a WHOLE LOTTA YUM!
Ketogenic Pumpkin Pie
While we try to keep desserts reasonable in our home, the reality is the holidays are not complete without a few fall favorites – including pumpkin pie!
Pumpkin pie happens to be a family favorite both in our home and with extended family, but when my husband switched to a ketogenic diet we knew we were going to have to make some changes.
We had a trusted and timeless pumpkin pie recipe that was easily transformed and adapted to make the best keto pumpkin pie recipe.
Luckily, even our non-low-carb and gluten-free family members agreed that our ketogenic pumpkin pie was the BEST pumpkin pie recipe they had ever had.
If you’re looking for a delicious recipe for keto pumpkin pie, you’ve found it! You can serve this as a whole crustless pie, in individual dishes, or you can bake it inside your favorite low-carb pumpkin pie crust. Top with our keto whipped cream and you have a dessert that we can all be thankful for this holiday season.

We are going to make our keto pumpkin pie with some very common and familiar ingredients – including pumpkin puree, cream, eggs, and spices. However, we are going to swap out the high-carb items – including sugar – for ones that are low-carb and keto approved.
- pumpkin puree
- heavy whipping cream
- whole milk
- packed brown erythritol
- ground cinnamon

Ingredient Notes— This recipe calls for canned pumpkin and NOT canned pumpkin pie filling. Canned pumpkin pie filling comes with the spices mixed in, which at first might seem helpful, but mixing in your own spices tastes a million times better.
- Monkfruit (Lakanto brand is great) can also be used instead of erthyrtitol (Swerve).
Step by Step Instructions
Similar in steps and method to a traditional pumpkin pie, our keto crustless pumpkin pie recipe is perfect for when you need a low-carb holiday dessert that is quick, easy, and full of flavor.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Move the oven rack to the center position.
Grease a 1 1/2 qt pan or 9″ pie pan with cooking spray.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, cream, milk, eggs, brown sugar, spices, and salt.
Pour into the prepared baking pan.
Bake in the middle of the oven for 45 to 50 minutes. The filling should be set but still jiggles a tiny bit in the center. The keto pumpkin pie filling will continue to cook as the pie cools.
Move the pie to a baking rack and let it cool completely.
Store in the refrigerator, the keto pumpkin pie should keep in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.
Serve with keto whipping cream.
- Make sure you purchase pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
- Brands of pumpkin puree can vary and some have more liquid or are thinner. Libby’s brand seems to give consistent results.
- It is recommended to make the recipe as is and not try to swap the whole milk for something else for best flavor and consistency.
- The pie can also be made in individual servings by cooking it in ramekins. If you do this the pie will most likely take less time to cook.
You can store your cooked and cooled pumpkin pie in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Pumpkin is considered a low-carb food and you can consume it in moderation on either a low-carb or a ketogenic diet.
On average, most pumpkin purees have 6.5 net carbs per 0.5 cup serving. And each serving of keto pumpkin pie has just 5 net carbs.
