THE BEST KETO PUMPKIN PIE
If you've ever wanted pumpkin pie but didn't want to take the time to make one - or just didn't need an entire pie - this keto pumpkin pie recipe is the answer.
It takes just 5 minutes to make the crust and filling - and that's from scratch! And the process of making this keto pie recipe could not be any easier. Basically, all you have to do is add the ingredients to 2 separate bowls, and then mix them until they combine.
Then, it's up to you if you want to eat this as a no bake keto pie or not. We'll talk more about this a little later on though.
Anyway, this mini pumpkin pie is seriously as good as my regular Keto Pumpkin Pie recipe! So, if you want to make an entire pie to serve for the holidays, I highly recommend checking that out.
By the way, if you've made my 5 Minute Keto Pecan Pie, this recipe is super similar to that one. And if you haven't tried it yet, I highly suggest making it next.
So, to make this mini keto pumpkin pie, you'll need pretty much all the same ingredients that you'd use to make my regular one.
And they are all basic keto baking ingredients that you might have on hand.
Here's what you'll need of the keto pie crust:
- 2 Tbsps salted butter, melted
- ½ Cup blanched almond flour (I toasted mine)
- 3 Tbsps confectioners swerve
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
By the way, if you have these ingredients on hand, you can make my low carb chocolate pie recipe next!
And for the sugar free pumpkin pie filling:
- ½ Cup pure pumpkin
- 1 ½ Tbsps Vanilla Protein Powder (I like to use a whey casein mix)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 Tbsps Confectioners Swerve
- ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Pinch of salt
Now, as you can see, I like to use a whey and casein blend for the protein powder. Any will work, but I have that I get the best results with the whey casein mix for the pumpkin pie filling.
Also, you might've noticed that all of the ingredients we'll be using are gluten free. So, this is not only is this a sugar free pumpkin pie recipe, but it's gluten free pumpkin pie recipe too.
Oh, and if you end up having to go to the store to get any of the ingredients, pick up some extra pumpkin puree and stock up on pumpkin pie spice so you can make these Keto Pumpkin Donuts!
Keeping The Pie Crust Keto & Low Carb
Alright, so to make this pie crust keto and low carb we'll be using almond flour as the main ingredient. And almond flour has just 2 net carbs per ¼ cup serving, which makes it one of the lowest carb flour options out there.
With that said though, if you don't want to use almond flour - or have an almond allergy - you can substitute it with an equal amount of walnut flour or sunflower seed flour. Both are low carb, gluten free, and keto friendly flours that will work just as well to make the pie crust.
With that said, DO NOT use coconut flour in place of almond - it is a super absorbent flour that will cause the crust to dry out, and it is not an equal substitute.
MAKING THIS A SUGAR FREE PIE
So, as I mentioned earlier, this is a sugar free pumpkin pie. But it has all the sweetness that a "normal" pumpkin pie has!
And to give this pie a touch of sweetness - without adding carbs - I used Confectioners Swerve for the pie crust and filling. Swerve has 0 calories, 0 sugar, and is the perfect sweetener for the keto diet.
However, another keto friendly sweetener that you can use for this recipe is Lakanto's Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener. This monk fruit sweetener is comparable to Swerve and is an excellent substitution for it in this recipe. So, if Monk Fruit is the only thing you've got, don't worry, you can totally use it as a 1:1 substitute for Swerve.
HOW TO MAKE KETO PUMPKIN PIE IN 5 MINUTES
Ok, so making this keto pumpkin pie is beyond easy and way quicker than making an entire pie.
And in 5 minutes from now, you'll have a delicious keto dessert that you can either enjoy yourself or split with anyone lucky enough to be in the kitchen.
Now, gather your ingredients, and let's get baking!
STEP 1: MAKING THE CRUST
First, we're going to make the almond flour pie crust from scratch.
So, you're going to start by adding all of the crust ingredients - the melted butter, almond flour, confectioners swerve, cinnamon, and salt - to a medium sized bowl and mix them until crumbly.
Then, once they're combined and crumbly, you can use your hands to mix them to form a ball of dough.
Next, coat a 4-inch bowl with baking spray and add the dough ball to it. Use your fingers to press the dough out to cover the bottom and side of the bowl to make a pie crust shape. And don't worry if the dough is a little crumbly while you do this.
After a crust is formed, microwave it in 3, 30-second intervals, and then put the crust in the freezer while you make the filling - the freezing just helps the crust cool down, and set faster.
By the way, if you want to make this a no bake keto pumpkin pie recipe you can just skip the microwaving.
STEP 2: MAKING THE FILLING
Ok, so while the crust is chilling, let's make the filling.
First, add all of the filling ingredients - the pumpkin puree, protein powder, vanilla extract, confectioners swerve, pumpkin pie spice, and salt - to a small bowl.
Then mix all of the ingredients until they're well combined, and you have a smooth pumpkin pie filling.
STEP 3: COMPLETING THE PIE
Now, take the pie crust out of the freezer and evenly pour the filling into the crust.
Then you can either dig right in and start eating your keto pumpkin pie like that, or you can put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to let the flavors develop even more.
Whatever you decide to do, this low carb pumpkin pie will be delicious, so enjoy!
STORING THIS MINI KETO PUMPKIN PIE
So, this keto pumpkin pie has about 2 ideal servings. And each serving has 5 NET CARBS.
And, honestly, it is so rich and satisfying that I only eat about a fourth of the pie every time I make it. With that said though, since it stores so well - and is even tastier leftover - I eat the rest of the pie for the next three days!
Now, to store the pie you can either cover the bowl with plastic wrap. or transfer the pie to an airtight container. Stored like one of those two ways it will last in the fridgefor up to 4 days!
Then whenever you want some low carb pumpkin pie deliciousness, just take it out and dig in!
Also, I'm not going to lie; I've been eating some of this leftover pie for breakfast with my Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte. The combination is incredible.
WRAPPING IT ALL UP
Well, that is how to make low carb pumpkin pie - and in just 5 minutes!
This sugar free pie is so quick and easy to whip up and will leave you perfectly satisfied. You seriously won't believe how legit this pie recipe is and how spot-on the taste and texture of the filling and crust are.
I was actually surprised myself just how good it turned out. And it's honestly crazy that it has only 5 net carbs per serving - which is the entire pie!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this easy keto pie recipe as much as I do.

I made this immediately after you posted it on YouTube. It’s INCREDIBLE JOE!!
All I can say is wow!! Blown away by how good this is and that it only takes a few minutes.
Hi Joe. Great site/channel. I tried the pie and it was really tasty. You did a good job of making an authentic pumpkin pie experience- would not guess it was keto. My only issue is, the middle of the crust burned from the incremental microwaving.
My microwave is 1100 watts. Could that be why? Or did I do something wrong? I let it sit for a few seconds in between each 30second heating.
Upon answering that stuff, is there a way to make it in the oven?
Thanks a lot Joe!
The Diet Chef says
I'm glad you liked it Michael! It sounds like your microwave might just be more powerful than mine. The crust is totally safe to eat raw, but maybe just 2 cooking intervals in the micro would work better in yours. You can bake it at 350 for 5-10 minutes....that should be enough - just watch it as it cooks.
Joe, thank you for the pumpkin and pecan pie recipes for 2, if I want to make a regular size pie how would you suggest I change the amounts?
The Diet Chef says
I think you'll need to triple (possibly quadruple) the amounts.
This was outstanding!!!! I can see myself making this for Thanksgiving! I used Devotion Angel Food Cake for the protein powder. I am wondering how you toast your almond flour?
Wow. Can't believe how good this is.
OMG this was to die for!!!
