It’s a collective obsession that hits the majority of us the minute the calendar turns to September. We’re simply conditioned to go pumpkin crazy in the fall. I blame Starbucks.

And if you happen to combine pumpkin and cream cheese, people start swooning. I mean, falling down in the streets in a dead faint. Take my Keto Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, for example.

Naming a recipe isn’t always easy, my friends.

You want a name to be descriptive and convey the deliciousness at hand, but you also want it to be succinct. No one wants to read a recipe that has 20 words in the title alone!

Then there is the Google problem. We bloggers want our recipes to show up highly ranked in search engines and that means identifying appropriate keywords.

This recipe had many possible titles. It’s modelled after my Keto Boston Cream Pie Cookie Cups but it also features pumpkin cheesecake mousse. And the crusts are really keto gingerbread cookies.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am allergic to almonds, can I use coconut flour?

No, coconut flour won’t work in these keto pumpkin cheesecake bites. However, you can use sunflower seed flour as a 1:1 replacement for almond flour. Be sure to add a touch of acid (lemon juice or vinegar) to offset the green reaction.

Can I use a different sweetener?

I do recommend a good brown sugar replacement for the cookie cups, to give it more of a gingerbread spice flavor. Also, if you use BochaSweet or allulose in the cookies, they may be overly soft and cake-y. Please read my guide to keto sweeteners to understand why.

The filling should be fine with any powdered sweetener, and some liquid sweeteners like stevia or monkfruit extract may work as well.

Can I just make the Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse alone?

Absolutely! I originally made a little too much filling for the cookie cups and I ate the rest simply as a mousse-style dessert. So feel free to just make the pumpkin mousse and eat it as is. It makes about 4 servings.

Can you make Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites in advance?

You can make this recipe a day before you plan to serve it. Keep the bites in a covered container in the fridge, but let them sit out for 15 minutes before serving, so the filling is softer and creamier.

You can also make the cookie cups themselves well in advance and refrigerate for up to a week or freeze for up to 2 months. Then you can make the pumpkin mousse fresh and pipe it in before serving.

Preheat the oven to 325F and line a mini muffin pan with 24 silicone liners (or use a silicone mini muffin pan).
In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, ginger, cinnamon baking powder, salt, and cloves. Stir in the melted butter, egg white, and vanilla extract until the dough comes together.
Roll the dough into ¾ inch balls and press into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared mini muffin cups.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until puffed and the edges are just golden brown. Remove and let cool 10 minutes, then gently press into the centers to reform the wells. Let cool completely.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Filling

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and powdered sweetener together until well combined and smooth. Beat in the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla until well combined.
In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until it holds stiff peaks. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until no streaks remain.
Place the filling in a piping bag and pipe decoratively into the cookie cups. Alternatively you can spoon it in, mounding slightly on top.
Sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice or add some sugar-free holiday sprinkles.
