Pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts might be out of the picture for keto lovers this fall. But plenty of other options can give followers of the high-fat, low-carb diet their annual pumpkin fix. With about 8 grams of carbs per cup, pumpkin is actually considered a low-carb food. The way it’s usually prepared (baked into sugary pies and breads, for example) makes us associate it with serious carb overload.
The foodies featured below, however, have found a way to make all of your pumpkin cravings keto-friendly—from gluten-free cookies to no-bake cheesecake bites. We’ve gathered 11 of their most festive recipes to help you get into the spirit of the season while staying loyal to your diet.
