The ingredients you’re going to need for keto pumpkin cheesecake: 

For the crust:

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour – Almond flour is a great keto alternative to all-purpose flour. It absorbs liquid very well, it’s low-carb, and it’s loaded with healthy fats. Make sure you are using almond flour and not almond meal. They are different things and almond flour will work much better for this recipe.
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted – Butter is going to help the crust solidify and hold together nicely. You want to make sure you use unsalted because salted butter might alter the taste of the crust.
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon – Cinnamon is a great spice and is used in so many desserts. It’s so versitle and it’s also loaded with anti-inflamatories which are great for you.
  • 2 tablespoons erythritol, either granular or powdered – Erythritol is a low-carb and low-calorie sugar substitute. It works great for keto recipes and it’s also sweeter than traditional sugar.You can easily swap for cane sugar but then this recipe would no longer be low-carb.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – Vanilla is a key ingredient in almost every baking recipe. It helps enhance all of the sweet flavors. You only need a small amount but it does make a big difference. 

For the filling:

  • 20 ounces cream cheese, softened – Cream cheese is the base in cheesecake. It’s important that your cream cheese is softened so that it’s easier to combine with the other ingredients.
  • 1 cup powdered erythritol – As stated before, erythritol is a low-carb and low-calorie sugar substitute. It’s wonderful in keto recipes because it adds sweetness without adding a ton of carbs and sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – Vanilla is a must in every baking recipe because it enhances the other sweet flavors. You only need a small amount but it does make a big difference.
  • 3 eggs – Eggs help create structure and help the other ingredients combine nicely. Without eggs, your cheesecake might fall apart or not set up properly. Eggs also help the batter turn into a nice creamy color.
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree – Because this a keto pumpkin cheesecake recipe, you’re going to need pumpkin puree. Pumpkin puree is different than pumpkin pie filling so make sure you are using pumpkin puree. To find out why they’re different, keep scrolling on this post.
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon – Cinnamon adds so much flavor and antioxidants to this recipe. You won’t want to skip it!
  •  ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice – To get that traditional “pumpkin” flavor, it’s crucial that you add pumpkin pie spice. It’s one of our favorite spices to use in the fall and/or winter.
