Pumpkin Keto Approved

Yes, pumpkin is keto friendly! Unlike many other Winter squashes, pumpkin is not high in carbohydrates or sugars. A cup of pumpkin puree typically has 10 grams of net carb, 4 grams of which are fiber. Pumpkin is also a great addition to any keto diet as it has a lot of nutrients in it, such as Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium and beta-carotene, which then converts into Vitamin A. Pumpkin is also high in antioxidants and is full of Vitamins E, C and B -Vitamins. When buying ready made pumpkin for this recipe, make sure to purchase 100% pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling as this tends to have a lot of sugars in it, making it not keto friendly.

Canned vs Fresh Pumpkin

As we mentioned before, you can use either fresh or canned pumpkin for this recipe. Fresh pumpkin may have a duller hue than that of the deep orange canned pumpkin colour we are used to seeing during Thanksgiving, so it may not be as visually appealing. Both fresh pumpkin and canned pumpkin are packed with nutrients such as potassium, Vitamin A and iron, so the nutrient value would not determine whether to use fresh or canned pumpkin.

However, for convenience, I usually prefer to use canned pumpkin as it is easier and a quicker way to make the filling for the pumpkin. If you would like a challenge and really enjoy baking and making everything from scratch, you would probably prefer to opt for the fresh version to make the classic pumpkin pie (but keto friendly of course!).

How to Keep Your Pumpkin Pie from Cracking

Pumpkin pie usually starts cracking if it’s baked too long. In order to keep your pumpkin pie from cracking, you need to make sure to keep with the recommended baking time and to cook at the correct temperature. The pie needs to be pulled out of the oven within the optimum baking window, that is, fully baked but not to the point where it becomes over-baked. This will prevent any unwanted cracks in your pie. The pie should be baked on a lower oven rack in order for your filling not to overcook.

That being said, this keto pie is still delicious if you accidently overbake it and it cracks. It doesn’t affect the flavor or texture. Plus, I think it adds a little character to the pie.

  1. Amazing recipe. I have never imagined that there can be keto pumpkin pie. But im a bit confused about arrowroot. In the written ingredients you didnt mentioned abt arrowroot. Should we use arrowroot or not as described in the video. If yes pls can you give info how much to use it?

    1. In that video, I used Carolyn Ketchum’s pie crust recipe which uses arrowroot powder. This recipe as listed here, I used my pie crust recipe which doesn’t need arrowroot. Sorry for the confusion.
