Cheesecake is one of those desserts that are very easy to convert to keto, which is great because my family loves some cheesecake! It seemed only natural that we attempt to make a Keto pumpkin cheesecake for the fall season. Of course, we weren’t expecting to make it a slow cooker cheesecake but when your oven decides to go on the fritz what else is a baker to do?!?
Of course, this cheesecake can be made in an oven too! Just use a springform pan and cook it for at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes instead!

Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake – Directions
- Line your slow cooker with some parchment paper. Make sure it covers both the bottom and the sides to reduce sticking later on!
- Measure the butter for your crust while it’s still hard and then melt it in the microwave (approx 30 seconds).
- In a large bowl add your melted butter, almond flour, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, and maple syrup. Mix well until you have a wet crumbly mixture.
- Use your fingers to press this mixture into the bottom of your crockpot.
- In a second large mixing bowl use a hand mixer to combine your cream cheese and swerve confectioners sugar. This step is much easier if you allowed your cream cheese to soften at room temperature.
- Once your swerve confectioners and cream cheese are well mixed add your pumpkin puree. I used 1 1/2 cups but feel free to adjust this to suit our own tastes, since we haven’t added the eggs yet you can taste as you go!
- When you’re happy with the amount of pumpkin flavor (don’t forget to adjust your carb count accordingly!) mix in your sugar-free maple syrup and eggs.
- Spread the mixture over your crust in the crockpot.
- Cook on low for 3-5 hours until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Allow your cheesecake to cool or chill in the fridge before trying to remove and cut it!
- While your cheesecake is cooling off make your maple drizzle topping!
- In a small saucepan melt your butter and mix in 3 tbsps of Splenda stevia naturals. Stir until the Splenda is completely dissolved.
- Add one tbsp of Sugar-Free maple syrup and 2/3 cup Heavy whipping cream.
- Bring mixture to a boil stirring frequently.
- Reduce heat and allow the mixture to simmer and thicken. Depending on your maple syrup your sauce might be more cream-colored. Feel free to add some food coloring if you’d like or just enjoy it as is!
- Depending on the size of your pan this thickening process might take a while (about 5 minutes for me). You will know when the sauce is ready when it will coat the back of a spoon.
- Cut a slice of cheesecake, top with a spoonful of sauce and enjoy!
**The Maple drizzle topping keeps very well in a Tupperware container in the fridge. As it cools it will thicken considerably but just spoon a bit out and warm it up for a few seconds in the microwave or spread it on your cake cold as a frosting. It’s delicious either way!
This looks like something my husband would absolutely love. As the only member of the family who eats cheesecake, he would be more than happy to have this all to himself. I’ll have to give it a try.
Cheesecake is pretty much a staple around here since it’s very easy to make a keto version of it and it’s pretty adaptable. My husband says this one reminded him of a creamier pumpkin pie so if he likes pumpkin pie he’ll probably like this!
I absolutely love cheesecake and this looks so delicious!! The photos make it look mouth watering and this is the perfect recipe for this time of year too! Would love to give this a try – thanks for sharing Kristin! <3 xx

It was very delicious! I think I only got a couple of pieces before the kids and husband gobbled it all up! Story of my baking life haha!
I adore cheesecake and this looks delicious – although I had no idea you could make them in a slow cooker, that’s genius. I’ll have to dig ours out of retirement and give it a go, thank you for sharing this! x

Ooo, this looks absolutely delicious! I’ve never tried pumpkin in a dessert form like this before. I would have never thought to make one in a slow cooker either! Really interesting recipe x
