Who doesn’t love pumpkin spice? It’s the iconic flavor of fall and oh-so-delicious. Try these pumpkin spice truffles for a delightful keto fat bomb treat!
One of the best things about eating keto is that you don’t ever need to feel deprived. And at this time of year that means indulging in all sorts of apple caramel and pumpkin spice flavored treats!
I’m all about the pumpkin spice latte or the low carb spiced caramel cappuccino, but sometimes you want a decadent dessert. Enter: Keto Pumpkin Spice Truffles!
These easy to make (and easier to devour!) sweet treats will help satiate any cravings you’ve been having for pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice cake, and all those other fall treats that you want to steer clear of this year. But you can take a yummy bite of these decadent sugar free, gluten free truffles and savor all the pumpkin spice beauty of autumn.
They’re really that good!
What Ingredients Do You Need For These Pumpkin Spice Keto Fat Bombs?
- Cream cheese
- Canned pumpkin
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Maple flavored monkfruit syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Swerve sweetener, powdered
- Cocoa butter
How To Make Low Carb Pumpkin Spice Truffles
I know they’re really pretty and you’re liking thinking that these will be hard to make, but they’re surprisingly simple!
And oh-so-worth-every-second. And then some.
Cream together the softened cream cheese, softened butter, and powdered low carb sweetener until they are light and fluffy.
Next, add the pumpkin puree and whip it into the creamed mix. Then add your syrups and spices and continue to mix well. Scrape the sides of your mixing bowl with a spatula and continue to blend until all the ingredients have combined into one smooth mixture.
Refrigerate that mix for an hour.
After an hour, remove the low carb pumpkin spice batter from the fridge and roll it out into tablespoon sized balls. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze them for 30 minutes.
After that, you’ll dip them into your melted cocoa butter and then let it harden. Just set them in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours (overnight is best) and they’ll be ready to enjoy!
Storing Your Keto Fat Bombs
So how do you store these lovelies? In a vault, to keep them away from husbands, children, and friends who will eat them all after they realize how amazing they are.
Or in the fridge, in an airtight container, for up to a week. If they last that long.
These are great to pair with your afternoon coffee (like that spiced caramel cappuccino we mentioned earlier!) and make a wonderful dessert. Remember just to have one (or two) and not the whole tray. That might sound like common sense, but once you take your first bite you’ll be glad for the reminder.
Can You Make These Ahead Of Time?
Yes! In fact, you make them them and freeze them and just thaw them in the fridge the night before you’re ready to serve them (or, in a pinch, on the counter a couple of hours ahead of time).
These make great treats to have on hand or holiday parties, coffee with friends, or to save time by making a big batch all at once and just pulling enough out for a couple of days at a time.
I’m all about batch cooking, convenience, and keto deliciousness combining in a recipe…aren’t you?

Add the pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, syrup, and vanilla. Combine until smooth, stopping to occasionally scrape the side and make sure all is well mixed.

Place the rolled balls in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Place the cocoa butter in a microwave safe bowl, and melt at 10 second intervals, until its melted and smooth when stirred.
Remove the truffle balls from the freezer, and dip the balls into the cocoa butter, and place back onto the parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
When all balls have been dipped, sprinkle a little cinnamon on the truffles, and add any sugar free decorations you would like.
