Keto Pumpkin Pie with Streusel Topping

This KETO PUMPKIN PIE starts with a traditional pie filling, but skips the crust! It gets topped off with a simple low carb streusel topping that you won’t be able to resist!

I’m not going to lie: I think pumpkin pie is a breakfast food.

I mean, sure, it’s good after a turkey dinner. But it is REALLY good first thing in the morning, cold from the fridge.

You don’t have to eat pie for breakfast to love this keto pumpkin pie though. It’s the perfect low carb holiday dessert and I think you’ll love the thick, creamy pumpkin pie filling topped off with the simple streusel.

This is a crustless pumpkin pie, partially because I didn’t feel like messing with a pie crust and partially because I don’t actually super love pie crust. I’m here for the pumpkin pie filling, friends!

Without the crust, though, I knew I’d want a little extra magic happening.

Oh, hello streusel. You’re always the man for the job. 😉

You might think there is some big secret to making a crustless pumpkin pie, but there really isn’t! 

Pumpkin pie is so nice and thick and firm on it’s own that it holds together quite well even without a crust! 

I use this avocado oil spray to spray my pie plate before filling, just to be safe.

My keto pumpkin pie filling starts with a can of 100% pure pumpkin. I also add in a couple of eggs, some sweetener, heavy cream, and pumpkin pie spice.

The sweetener I use and recommend is Lakanto Monkfruit. It swaps 1:1 for sugar and doesn’t have any funky aftertaste. I love it! Use code THATLOWCARBLIFE for 20% off your entire order from Lakanto! 

Whisk your filling really well and then pour it in your pie plate.

This crustless pumpkin pie will need to bake for 45 minutes before we add the streusel topping.

Is there any dessert that can’t be made better by streusel? I think not!

This low carb streusel is quite easy. Just stir together some almond flour, pecans, coconut flour, cinnamon, and melted butter.

Pull your pie from the oven at the 45 minute mark and then top it off with the streusel. Your pie will be mostly set at this point, so the streusel won’t sink into the custard.

Return the pie to the oven to finish baking.

What is in pumpkin pie spice:

Pumpkin pie spice is super convenient to keep on hand, but it’s easy to make your own! It’s just a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.

To make your own, combine 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, and 1/4 teaspoon cloves. This will make enough pumpkin pie spice for this recipe. Feel free to make a larger batch for future uses!

Does low carb pumpkin pie need to be refrigerated? 

Pumpkin pie is a custard-based pie and it does need to stay refrigerated.

Cover tightly and store in the fridge for up to 4 days. 

We like to eat it cold, straight from the fridge.

Gluten free pumpkin pie:

This pumpkin pie is gluten free and grain free! 

If you’re not watching carbs and just looking for a gluten free pumpkin pie, feel free to use real sugar in place of the sweeteners called for. The recipe will turn out just as good, though the nutrition information will be different, of course.

    Hi, I would like to ask i don’t have heavy cream what can I use instead? Thank you

    1. Karly Campbell

      We’ve only tested this with heavy cream. Coconut cream may work, but it will alter the taste of the pie.

  2. Thinking about making it in regular sized muffin tin so I can freeze the smaller portions- Any thoughts on how long I’d need to bake it this way?? Help!?!

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Sally! I haven’t tried this so I’m not sure how long it would take to bake. I do think you’ll have a hard time getting it out of the muffin tin, though.

  3. Cynthia Monroe Rose

    I just made this amazing pie tonight but it’s for Thanksgiving in 2 days Whats the best way for me to store it until then? Refrigerate or will it be ok on the countertop in our spare room (somewhat cold in there like 50°) ?

  4. JACQUELYN GORDON

    We are not big pumpkin people but do enjoy apples. Can I susbstitute apples in the strudel recipe which sounds wonderful?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Jacquelyn! The strusel is a bit soft, like you’d find on a cake. Not crisp like you’d normally find on an apple crisp. That said, you can definitely give it a try and see how it goes. 🙂

  5. This recipe was sooooo good!! everyone loved it…even the one that doesn’t like pumpkin!

  6. I am thinking of tomorrow I will make KETO PUMPKIN PIE according to your recipe. That would definitely be a great thing.

  7. Hi Karly,
    I have read a lot of your blog sharing recipes for the past 2 years. This changed our family meals. Everything is great. I want to say thank you for your recipe and all the things you do. I love you.
    Michael.

  8. I was thinking to make it as cupcakes and add a banana as sweetener (I am from Europe so appologies in advance to all Americans for ruining their staple pie 🙂 ) But my concern is that the cupcake lining will stick to the filling and thr banana will overpower the pumpkin… what are your thoughts?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi there! I think the banana will definitely add a different flavor to the pumpkin and it will likely be too much moisture. I’m not sure about the cupcake liner…I think that would work if you use the recipe as directed, but maybe not with the banana since that will be a lot wetter.
