Low Carb Pumpkin Pie

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie

A classic pumpkin pie style recipe made to be low carb and keto friendly. This easy pie is perfect for a keto friendly holiday table!

Every Thanksgiving table needs at least one pumpkin pie on it as far as I’m concerned. If you’re looking to eat lower carb and gluten free (or maybe someone in your family is), then this is the perfect pumpkin pie recipe that won’t make you miss the carbs!

Part of what I love about keto and low carb eating, is that despite what people think, there really are easy ways to recreate a lot of the classics (if you have a few tricks up your sleeve). Luckily for you, I have a lot of these tricks and I am here to help.

This recipe comes together fairly easily using my Gluten Free and Keto Complaint Pie Crust. I made a classic pumpkin pie filling that was modified with low carb sweeteners, and after only two attempts, the perfect Keto Pumpkin Pie was baked into existence.

You’re welcome.

Gluten Free and Keto Compliant Pie Crust

“Class” Notes:

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie starts with pie crust! Make sure you also check out this Gluten Free and Keto Complaint Pie Crust recipe and read the full post for all the step by step instructions.

I go into detail on how to easily make the pie dough, roll it into the perfect circle, and give tips for baking too. As for the filling, it is so simple. All you need is one large mixing bowl and a whisk at the ready.

I combined the canned pumpkin puree, monk fruit sweetener (or other low carb sweetener), a few eggs, a little heavy cream, xanthan gum to help with binding and thickening, a splash of vanilla, and pumpkin pie spices. Whisk until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps.

Pour it into the prepared pie shell. I prefer to bake my pies by setting the pie plate onto a baking sheet. This makes it easier to take in and out of the oven. For this recipe, I found it useful to bake with foil covering just the edges of the crust, because the filling takes a longer time to set and it helps prevent the edges from burning.

Bake until the center is still slightly jiggly but the outside edges are set. I let my pie cool on the counter till it reaches room temperature and then cover and store in the fridge.

You can easily make this pie ahead of time and is keeps for several days after making (trust me, I made two of these baby’s). Top with homemade whipped cream and serve chilled!

EDIT- I’ve been getting several questions about what canned pumpkin puree I used. I used organic pumpkin puree from Trader Joe’s. Any can will work but will carbs vary per brand.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Additional Time 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 35 minutes


  • 1 Gluten Free & Keto Compliant Pie Crust
  • 1 can, Pumpkin Puree
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Low Carb Sweetener (I prefer Monk Fruit Sweetener)
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum (helps set the pie, don't omit)
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice


    1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

    2. Combine all the pumpkin pie filling ingredients into a bowl and whisk till smooth. Pour into the Gluten Free & Keto Compliant Pie Crust.

    3. Cover the edges of the crust with foil, and place the pie plate onto a baking sheet.

    4. Bake for 60 minutes. Check the center of the pie, the sides should be set and the center should be jiggly but not look like liquid. If it still looks too think in the middle, allow it to bake for another 5-10 minutes or so. It's easy to slightly over bake, so I encourage you to keep an eye on it after this point.

    5. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow it to cool on the counter until it reaches room temperature. Store covered in the fridge until ready to eat. Serve with whipped cream if desired.

        1. Hi Elaine,

          I did not blind bake this crust for this pie recipe. You could par-bake it, but I would lightly rim the sides with foil to prevent burning when baking with the filling. The edges could get a little overcooked otherwise. Enjoy!


    1. Hi Leslie,

      I think the word “clean” in regards to food is somewhat of a relative term, but it is not toxic. A toxin would suggest it is inedible and poisonous which is not the case. Xanthan gum is a common thickening agent in a LOT of recipes both homemade and store bought. I do advocate that you should however do whatever works best for you and your diet. This is used as a binding agent and thickening agent. A replacement for this is cornstarch or maybe arrowroot powder.
