These cookies are an easy dessert or snack when you’re craving something a little sweet. The cookie dough took me only five minutes to make. The cookies can be enjoyed as is or you can also add mix-ins and spices to make the cookies even more flavorful.
- Pumpkin Puree
- Superfine Almond Flour
- Erythritol Granular
I used canned pumpkin puree but you can use homemade pumpkin puree as well.
Make sure to use superfine almond flour and not regular almond flour. I have not tested this recipe with any other flours or flour alternatives.
Erythritol granular can be substituted with other granular sweeteners like Lakanto monkfruit or Swerve. If you are not on a keto diet, you can also use regular granular sugar.
This is a very basic pumpkin cookie recipe. They are tasty plain, but you can easily add an extra ingredient or two to make them even more flavorful.
- Add cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to make them taste more like pumpkin pie cookies.
- Mix in chocolate chips or chopped chocolate to give them more sweetness and flavor.

Keto Pumpkin Cookies
- 1 1/2 cup (137 g) superfine blanched almond flour
- 1/4 cup (48 g) erythritol granular
- 1/3 cup (79 g) pumpkin puree
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
- In a large bowl, add almond flour and erythritol. Stir until evenly mixed. Add in pumpkin and stir until pumpkin is fully incorporated and a sticky dough forms.
- Using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough balls and place onto prepared cookie sheet, spaced 2 inches apart. Press down on dough balls with the palm of your hand until they form round disks, about 1/2 inch thick. You can use your fingers to smooth and round the edges of the disks as needed.
- Bake cookies for about 15-17 minutes, or until edges are brown. The tops of the cookies may still feel soft, but that is okay. Let cookies cool completely on cookie sheet. When they are cooled, the exterior of the cookies should firm up. Store uneaten cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
- The cookies are lightly sweetened but not super sweet. If you desire sweeter cookies, you can add 2 more tbsp of sweetener to the batter, or mix in chocolate chips, or add an icing on top of the cookies.
- You can also add cinnamon or pumpkin spice to make the cookies taste like pumpkin pie cookies.
- I used erythritol granular but other granular sweeteners should work like Swerve or Lakanto Monkfruit.
