Keto Pumpkin Bars


For the bars:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated erythritol or other keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the cream cheese frosting:

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons powdered erythritol or other keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the bars:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a baking pan (such as an 8×8-inch pan) or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, melted coconut oil or butter, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until you have a smooth batter.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and spread it evenly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Once baked, remove from the oven and let the bars cool completely in the pan before frosting.

For the cream cheese frosting:

  1. In a bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the powdered erythritol and vanilla extract to the cream cheese and continue to beat until well combined and the frosting is smooth.

Assembling the bars:

  1. Once the bars have cooled, spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the top.
  2. If desired, sprinkle a little extra ground cinnamon or nutmeg on top of the frosting for decoration.
  3. Refrigerate the bars for at least an hour to allow the frosting to set before slicing and serving.
