I admit that when I was younger the prospect of pumpkin pie wasn’t much motivation. I generally preferred an apple pie. As I got older, however, the mild but distinctive flavor of pumpkin has grown on me. With fall coming up I knew I had to try and give our pumpkin pecan pie a sugar-free facelift. Following a keto diet has brought with it so many great changes to our health and lifestyle that I would keep eating this way even if I couldn’t convert my favorite recipes. But… being able to do so makes it a lot easier to stick with!
Should we eat Keto desserts every day? Likely not, it’s obviously better to fill up on healthy fats and vegetables. But sometimes – we just need our treats. With this keto pumpkin pecan pie you can do both! Pumpkin is surprisingly high in fiber and low in carbs which makes it a really wonderful vegetable to indulge in when the season calls for it! So bake away and keto on!

Keto Pumpkin Pecan Pie – Directions
Create your Crust
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
- Mix all of your crust ingredients together in a large bowl, the dough will be slightly crumbly but that’s fine!
- Grease your pie pan with Coconut oil to prevent the crust from sticking.
- Rather than roll out the dough like you would with a typical pie crust, take small scoops of it and press it into the bottom and sides of your pie pan. Try to make it as even as possible but don’t fret about it too much as long as it’s not too thin or broken you should be fine!
- Use a form to poke a few holes in the bottom to prevent bubbling.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes and then allow it to cool for about 10 minutes before using it.
Create your Pumpkin Layer
- While your crust is cooling off add all the pumpkin layer ingredients together in a separate bowl.
- Mix them well, until the contents are smooth and free of any dry powders or chunks
- Pour this mixture into your pie crust and smooth it out with a spatula.
Create your Maple Pecan Layer
- In a medium sized bowl mix together your eggs, maple syrup, swerve and vanilla.
- Whisk until smooth and well combined
- Add your pecans and mix until well covered in the sauce
- Pour this mixture slowly over your pumpkin mix in the pie crust.
Bake & Enjoy!
- Bake your pie at 350 degrees for approximately 50-60 minutes
- Allow to cool slightly (if you can!), top with optional homemade whip cream and enjoy!
- For directions on how to make homemade keto friendly whipped cream please take a look at out Keto Strawberry Shortcake Recipe!
Let me know if you give this a try!
This looks lovely and SO Autumnal! I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything with pumpkin in it to be honest! But I know I’d love the pecan element so I’d definitely give this a go!
I have had a few pumpkin items in the past, this year I have gone kind of pumpkin crazy though haha!
I’m so glad you were able to make a keto version of pumpkin pie. Fall just isn’t complete without this dessert. It looks delicious. I bet my husband would love it – but then again,he loves all food.
Don’t all men haha!
Well this sounds and looks absolutely gorgeous! I don’t think I’ve ever tried pumpkin in food, i’ve really enjoyed it in drinks though! It’s definitely on my list of new things to try this year 🙂
Strangely enough, I have yet to try the oh so popular pumpkin coffee that pops up every fall. Although I have made many pumpkin-based desserts Maybe this year will be the year! lol
This sounds amazing! I’d love to get the ingredients together and make some 🙂 xx
Glad you like the sound of it! Hope you get the chance to give it a try!
Wow!! This looks so tasty! I’ve never tried pumpkin but I’d love to give it a go. I love that this recipe is healthy too, everyone loves a guilt-free dessert! Thank you for sharing the recipe! Your photos look brilliant too <3 xx

Pumpkin is quickly becoming a new obsession this season. I was never one to try it in year past but it’s sooo good. Now I want pumpkin everything, I definitely understand the hype for it every year now haha.
This looks amazing! I like cooking with pumpkin when it’s in season in the autumn but I’ve never made a pumpkin pie before. Maybe this year I will!
I was always more of a fan of Pecan pie but pumpkin has quickly grown on me this year! You should definitely give it a try!
This looks so good! I love Pumkin pie and make it every year, this version looks amazing and I’m going to try it.
Awesome! I hope you love it as much as we did!
