It’s pumpkin spice season and we’re leaning into it!
Some may claim to have pumpkin spice fatigue, but no matter how overplayed the trend has gotten, the fact is that this magical combo of sweet warm spices and crisp autumn weather is still pretty great.
The majority of the world’s pumpkin-spiced treats are high-carb and sugary, trouble for those of us with diabetes. Here we can help fix that problem, with the help of some of our favorite food blogs – there’s no reason why sweet autumn spices need to cause blood sugar mayhem.

“When you want low carb pumpkin spice cake but aren’t worried about making it fancy!” Mellissa from I Breathe, I’m Hungry shares a sheet cake recipe that uses almond and coconut flours, along with all the good stuff, topped with a zero-carb cream cheese frosting.
Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
Low Carb Inspirations has an easy version of the recipe that set off the modern pumpkin spice craze: “If you miss pumpkin spice lattes, you are going to LOVE this Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe. It’s everything you love about pumpkin spiced lattes…only it’s keto and low carb friendly!”
Caroline of Caroline’s Keto Kitchen shares “what are quickly becoming my favorite pumpkin dessert.” These rich bars are made with canned pumpkin, chocolate, coconut flour, and plenty of butter, with a Libby’s sugar-free chocolate drizzle on top.
Keto Pumpkin Donuts
From our friends at Low Carb Yum: “Donuts are usually made by deep frying a sweetened flour dough in hot oil. Between the sugar and flour, most donuts have well over 20 grams of net carbs each. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Each large sugar-free keto pumpkin donut made from this recipe has just 5g net carbs. And there’s no frying so it’s much easier to prepare!”
Sous Vide Mini Keto Pumpkin Cheesecakes
If you’ve got yourself a fancy sous vide machine, you’re halfway to cheesecake perfection. The water bath cooks the cheesecakes to the ideal texture every time – no more cracking or struggling with sticky springform pans. Cream cheese, pumpkin, and pumpkin spice are just incredible together. Another winner from Caroline’s Keto Kitchen.
