Recipe: Low Carb Pumpkin Pie

It's Autumn in the US (or Fall if you must) and that means one thing - Pumpkin Spice everything! Rather than miss out it was time to investigate my own low carb recipe. If you want you can add a ground nut and butter crust but I think this is just delicious on it's own with whipped cream.

Low Carb Pumpkin Pie

3 eggs
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tin of canned pumpkin or 2 cups mashed fresh pumpkin
1 cup Splenda granules or equivalent sweetener
1 tspn Vanilla essence
2 tspn Pumpkin Pie Spice OR
1/2 tspn each of Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ground Ginger & 1/4 tspn Ground Cloves


  • Preheat the oven to 180C (350F)
  • In a bowl beat the eggs until fluffy and then add the vanilla and spices
  • While on a medium speed add the sweetener and beat until blended
  • Add the cream and beat until a stiff consistency is achieved
  • Reduce the speed on your mixer, add the mashed pumpkin 1 tbspn at a time until the mixture achieves a consistent orange colour
  • Spoon the mixture into a pie tin or 6 small moulds, in the picture I have used a mini bundt tin
  • Leave room for the pie mixture to rise
  • Bake for 30 mins, then turn the oven off and leave to cool in the oven
  • Serve with whipped cream
