This creamy keto pumpkin cheesecake is low-carb, refined sugar-free, and can be made into bars or slices. This tasty dessert is great for fall, Thanksgiving, or all year round! 
Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake I finally got around to posting these delicious keto pumpkin cheesecake bars just in time for Thanksgiving and fall. Keto desserts are my absolute favorite type of dishes to recipe test but are also the hardest. They require hours and hours of recipe testing to get the perfect texture and flavor but are well worth it in the end. If you or a loved one are on the keto diet or you know someone that that is, then this is the perfect dessert to make this Thanksgiving. They will thank you, and you can thank me later!

These cheesecakes are one of my favorite keto desserts because they DO NOT taste “keto”. My two daughters each had a slice and LOVED it without even realizing that it’s keto! The texture is fluffy and creamy and the flavor is spicy with a subtle sweetness.Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake

There are two main components in this recipe that make this cheesecake keto.

The flour: Almond flour works great for keto desserts and is my favorite option and I highly recommend sticking with it. For this recipe, you can substitute the almond flour with ground walnuts to keep it keto, or easily replace it with whole wheat or all-purpose flour if you’d like.

The Sweetener: Keto sweeteners can be tricky and sometimes complicated. To keep things simple and delicious, I like to use Powdered Erythritol Sweetener. Powdered Swerve, powdered Xylitol or Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener are also good options and can be substituted with a 1:1 ratio.

To get the right texture and to ensure the batter mixes well, I suggest using the eggs and cream cheese at room temperature. If your cream cheese is still cold, microwave it for 15-20 seconds or until it is softened. After baking the cheesecake, cool in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours to ensure clean slices. Top with keto (or regular) whipped cream when you are ready to serve.

Servings 9 slices





To make the base:

  • Preheat oven to 325F. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper or grease with butter; set aside.
    In a medium mixing bowl, combine melted butter and erythritol, mix until fully blended. Add almond flour and pumpkin spice; stir until combined.
    Transfer mixture to 8x8 pan and press evenly mixture on the bottom of the pan. Cook in the oven for 10 mins, then set aside to cool.

To make the filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and Erythritol until smooth. Add pumpkin puree, eggs, vanilla, and spices. Beat together until well combined.
    Pour into crust. Spread out evenly and bake for 40 minutes or until the edges are firm but the middle still jiggles slightly (it will appear dry completely across the top). Remove from the oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes then cover with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate for at least 4-6 hours before slicing.



To make your own pumpkin puree: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cut the pumpkin in half, stem to base. Remove seeds and pulp. Cover each half with foil. Bake foil side up, 45 min - 1 hour, or until tender. Scrape pumpkin meat from shell halves and puree in a blender. Strain to remove any remaining stringy pieces.
To make your own pumpkin spice: Combine 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger,

  1. This is so yummy! Perfect ratios to make the perfect texture, flavour and sweetness! Definitely a keeper ☺️ Thanks for your clever work in this recipe.

  2. This is something my husband always asks for! The only thing different that I do is I found lactose free bricks of cream cheese, so now I can enjoy it too (lactose intolerant here). Vutnthe nice th8ng is that being Type 2 Diabetic, I can have dessert too. Thank you for this recipe!

  3. Amazing recipe, I was really craving pumpkin spice treats with the fall season. Thank you

  4. We loved this!!! I was looking forward to it all day. I added an entire tablespoon of pumpkin spice to the cheesecake part because I can. I also added sugared keto pecans that I always make to the crust. Adding nuts leveled the crust up. Appreciate your recipes.

    1. I have not tried baking it without a sweetener so I don’t know how it will impact the texture or flavor.

  5. Thank you for posting this recipe! I was skeptical because of the simple ingredient list, but OMG! all doubts gone after the first bite. This turned out perfect, and I still can’t believe it’s keto! New favorite!

  6. I made this for Thanksgiving, but I changed the sweetener because powdered erythritol alone has a strong cooling effect for me. I used 3 combined: some powdered erythritol, but also granular monkfruit and sukrin gold. I also added about 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut to the crust and the crust was as good as the cheesecake! I made mine in a small springform pan, so had to increase the baking time since it was very thick. Thank you for such a great recipe!

  7. YUM YUM YUM!! Made this yesterday using confectioner Swerve and it is sooooooooo good. Does not taste keto AT ALL. I have been doing keto for 1 1/2 years now and always looking for dessert recipes that don’t taste keto, this definitely fits the bill. However, it did crack across the middle, is there a way not to have it crack or did I do something wrong?

  8. Can I substitute almond flour for coconut flour? If so, would the ratio be the same?

    1. You would use only 1/4th the amount of coconut flour.

      1. Lol I wish I would have read this before I substituted. I was thinking it was a lot of crust mixture.

  9. Soooo good, I’ve made it twice this month. The second time I added 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut to the crust for extra crunch. Best keto dessert I’ve tried by far. Thank you so much!

    1. I used your coconut tip and it really made it! Thanks!

  10. Perfect! I made it in a pie plate instead of a square pan. Was absolutely delicious. Will be a fall staple from now on…

  11. Made this last night and we loved it. How many net carbs per slice? In the nutrition content, I see the carbs and fiber but I don’t see the sugar alcohol and that is typically subtracted as well.


    1. Glad you enjoyed them! the sugar is the sugar alcohol count!

  12. Made this early in the week to “test it out”. Just made another one for my Thanksgiving gang tomorrow, as it is AWESOME! It’s also not labour intensive which is nice 😉 Thank you!

  13. This will be my first keto dessert so I’m still learning. 🙂
    Is the butter used with salt or without ?
    Your help is greatly appreciated

    1. It doesn’t matter! Whatever your preference is 🙂

  14. 1) I find almond flour to be very bland. Would half almond flour and half ground walnuts work?
    2) Could I make this in an 8″ round springform pan?
    3) If I’m using Lakanto brand products, would I keep the amounts the same? I’m wondering if Lakanto “Golden” would work better in the filling???

    1. Yes, that would work for the crust. This recipe will work in a springform pan but I would keep an eye out for the baking time as it may need a bit longer baking time. And yes, for the sweetener, it should be a 1:1 ratio!

    2. I made this is an 9″ springform pan, as thats all i had.. I had to make 50% more crust to get the right coverage.
      I used 1/2 almond flour and 1/2 chopped pecans and walnuts, and half the sweetener in my crust it was amazing.
      In my opinion its a lot more like pumpkin pie than pumpkin cheesecake.

    1. I haven’t tried freezing it but it should freeze well!
