Keto Pumpkin Spice Balls

keto pumpkin pie bites

I'm not sure if you've noticed but I've been slightly pumpkin obsessed lately.. and these Keto Pumpkin Spice Balls are no exception.

I love pumpkin in baking. I've always been a fan of pumpkin pie and pumpkin scones/muffins so I love experimenting with new variations of keto pumpkin desserts. 

When I was younger, my grandparents actually had their own pumpkin patch that we'd go and harvest every year.

We'd come back with 300+ pumpkins most of the time. We'd pick our favourites and then the rest we'd sell on the side of the road.

For hours, all of the kids (me included) would sit out there trying to get people to stop to buy pumpkins. 

We got pretty creative in our technique..making signs, yelling at them to stop.. using the younger kids to guilt people into stopping..LOL. 

Eventually we'd have to go inside and the rest of the pumpkins would be sold using the honours system where they'd put their money in a wooden box and take what they wanted. 

I definitely miss those days.

Canned pumpkin will never quite be the same but it will do just fine for this recipe..

For the dry ingredients in these keto pumpkin pie bites, you simply need some Pecan Flour, powdered sweetener of choice (I use a powdered monkfruit/erythritol blend), a pinch of salt and some fall spices.

Pecan Flour is your best option for this recipe because it's got a great fall flavour and is a nice change from the traditional almond flour base in keto desserts.

But with that said, almond flour can be subbed 1:1 for pecan flour if you do not have it.

Coconut flour can also be used and I've added some tips below on how to substitute it because it won't be a 1:1 swap due to the difference in absorption.

Powdered Monkfruit/Erythritol Sweetener is my favourite in no bake desserts as I mention below, because it just blends so well and has a great flavour. I use it in almost all of my recipes for this reason.

For this recipe you'll also need some cream cheese, pumpkin and some vanilla extract.

The cream cheese and pumpkin create a delicious flavour and provide just enough moisture to create a batter that's easy to roll into balls. 

Overall, these keto pumpkin spice bites or pumpkin spice balls or keto pumpkin fat bombs..

..whatever you want to call them, make a perfect quick and easy keto fall dessert that I'm sure you and your family will enjoy!

Ingredients You'll Need To Make Keto Pumpkin Spice Balls

  • Pecan Flour – This flour has a unique almost sweet taste. It pairs beautifully with pumpkin and spices! But you can also sub almond flour if you do not have it.
  • Powdered Monkfruit/Erythritol Sweetener – in my opinion, this is the best sweetener for keto desserts but especially no-bake ones because it's so fine that it blends in seamlessly without leaving any weird “crunch” to your desserts. You can also use any other powdered sweetener that measures like sugar if you prefer.
  • Vanilla Extract – You can use pure or artificial!

Can I Make These Keto Pumpkin Fat Bombs With Coconut Flour Instead of Pecan Flour?

  • Yes, you can make these with coconut flour (although, I recommend Pecan flour or Almond Flour if you can get your hands on them/do not have an allergy!) Instead of using 3/4 cup of pecan flour, you can replace it with 4 tbsp or 28g of coconut flour (add another 1/2-1 tbsp if the batter isn't thick enough).keto no bake pumpkin fat bombs
