Low Carb Pumpkin Pie

What’s a pie without a crust? Delicious. This recipe proves it!

Thanksgiving just isn’t Thanksgiving without a slice of pumpkin pie on my dessert plate. Sweetened with monk fruit and spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, this is a low-carb and sugar-free version of the pumpkin pie recipe I’ve been making for years.

While I know there are plenty of gluten free pie crust options out there, for this recipe I went simple and just baked the pumpkin filling without any crust. And there are so many options on how to bake it:

  • Pie Platebake in a traditional pie plate!
  • Muffin Tinuse a cupcake / muffin pan to bake your individual pumpkin pies.
  • RamekinsTHIS IS MY FAVORITE. No worries about scooping carefully here, everyone gets their own bowl and can dig right in!

Top with homemade Sugar Free Whipped Cream and you’ll have a satisfying, sweet low-carb dessert for all your holiday festivities. Give our pumpkin cupcakes a try next. Sugar free!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed for sugar free, crustless pumpkin pie.
  • Pumpkin – You need pure canned pumpkin for this recipe. Do not use pumpkin pie filling (I can’t stress this enough)!
  • Monk fruit – Granulated Monk fruit is my go-to sugar substitute for baking. It’s all natural, doesn’t raise your blood sugar and sweetens desserts without leaving an unpleasant aftertaste.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1. Beat the eggs with the pumpkin, then add in the heavy cream. Mix until everything is fully combined.

STEP 2. Add the monk fruit and the spices and mix well.

STEP 3. Bake in your desired shape!

  • For a regular pie: Pour the pie filling into a 9-inch pie plate that’s been sprayed with baking spray or lightly greased. Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes. Let the pie cool on the counter then transfer it to the refrigerator for additional 2 hours to set.
  • For cupcakes: Fill the cavities of a cupcake pan about 3/4 of the way with the pumpkin filling. Bake for 40 minutes at 350. Let the cupcakes cool, then use a spatula to slide them out of the pan. Refrigerate for 2 hours to let the cupcakes set.
  • For ramekins: Fill 4 oz ramekins with the pie filling. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Let them cool completely then refrigerate for 2 hours.

Ramekins are my personal favorite way to enjoy crustless pumpkin pie! No need to remove the pie or worry about it sticking to the pan when you serve them right in the ramekin.

Recipe FAQs

How do you tell when a pumpkin pie is done baking?

A knife inserted into the center of the pie should come out mostly clean when your low-carb pumpkin pie is ready to come out of the oven. Keep in mind the center will still be pretty soft–it firms up in the fridge later.

Why is my pumpkin pie sticking?

Make sure to use baking spray on your pie plate, cupcake tin or ramekins. For cupcakes in particular, you need to be pretty generous with your spray so that they are easier to remove!

How do you store this pie?

Keep the pie (or pies) covered with foil or plastic wrap in the fridge until ready to serve. The pie tastes best if enjoyed within 3 days.

I made the crustless pumpkin pie for my Christmas dinner dessert this year. I was diagnosed about 5 years ago with type 2 diabetes and ended up having to cut pumpkin pie out of my diet, which was devastating to me because I love my pumpkin pie during the holidays. Anyways that being said,because of this recipe I was able to enjoy pumpkin pie once again and it was not only amazing but incredibly delicious. Thank you for sharing these kind of recipes. I hope you are blessed.
