My favorite sweetener (by far!), this rare sugar has the uncanny ability to act like real sugar. It melts and caramelizes all without any funky or cool aftertaste. It really shines in this Keto Pumpkin Spice Butter!

This is (obviously!) the bulk of the recipe! Make sure you shop for puree without any additives – be sure to check there’s no added sugar. We’re looking for puree here, not to be confused with pumpkin pie filling.

This is such a baking staple and a good friend to pumpkin! I didn’t realize there were so many variations until I started shopping around. I love the Ceylon cinnamon in this recipe – it is smooth and very fragrant! Think more like grandma’s apple pie than a mouth burning cinnamon fireball candy!
There’s not a ton of technique to this Keto Pumpkin Spice Butter recipe (thankfully)! You’ll love it for its simplicity – just combine all the ingredients and cook over medium-low heat. You have two main goals – one is making sure that the pumpkin is cooked and integrated with the spices the second is making sure the mixture reduces to have the texture of a spread. All in all, it’s pretty easy! Just stir your mixture continuously as it cooks and reduces down
- Jar (8 oz)
- Nonstick pan
- Spatula or Spoon
This is a pretty straightforward recipe but there can still be a few issues.
Why is my pumpkin butter so runny?
Depending on the texture of your canned pumpkin, you might need a little extra cooking time for your pumpkin butter to thicken up. It should be kind of like baby food when it’s all done. It will also thicken up a little when it cools.
Why is my pumpkin butter so thick?
If you find that the pumpkin butter is drying out as you cook it and becoming too thick and sticking, just add in a little more water as it cooks. This is a very user friendly recipe and will definitely adapt with you!
How should I eat Keto Pumpkin Spice Butter?
Pumpkin butter might be more of a regional specialty so not everyone is used to enjoying it. Here are some GREAT ways to enjoy it:
- Smeared on bread or toast, this makes a delicious breakfast
- Pair it with some cream cheese on a cinnamon bagel 🥯
- Amazing added to cheesecake for a pumpkin swirl
- Drop a dollop in your Greek yogurt for a sweet snack
- Swirled into vanilla ice cream with a few pecans sprinkled on top! 🍨
- Someone in my household loves it on Keto Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins and Keto Pasadena Zucchini Bread
What should I drink with Keto Pumpkin Spice Butter?
It’s delicious paired with coffee (pumpkin spice latte anyone!), a strong tea like English breakfast, and just about perfect with the warm spices of chai!
Keep Keto Pumpkin Spice Butter in the fridge. Enjoy within 5-7 days of making it. Freezing is possible, but might impact the texture.
