18 Keto Pumpkin Recipes to Celebrate Fall

Pumpkin has a natural creaminess and savory flavor that makes every fall recipe better. It’s also packed with compounds that support your eye and brain health, among other benefits. These keto pumpkin recipes are the perfect way to enjoy all your favorite fall flavors and keep things low-carb.

Since pumpkin is naturally starchy, can you truly make it keto-friendly? While it contains more net carbs per serving than many vegetables, keto pumpkin recipes use such a small amount that you can easily fit it into your macros. For best results, steam your own pumpkin during pumpkin season, or get a high-quality canned pumpkin puree without BPA.

No matter how you prep it, you’ll want to make these keto pumpkin recipes all season long.
