You have to try The Best Keto Pumpkin Recipes that you can find. Every fall, pumpkin spice and all things pumpkin take over the shelves in grocery stores. This is not just a trend – the pumpkin recipes have been around since colonial times. And don’t worry: you can still enjoy your favorite flavors this season without sabotaging your healthy eating plan.
The Best Keto Pumpkin Recipes
Pumpkin spice is so popular in part because of its nostalgic flavor, but it also has a lot of health benefits. For example, pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of magnesium and zinc, both minerals that promote male fertility. Pumpkin also contains fiber which helps to keep you full longer. And the high nutrient content in pumpkin means it’s loaded with antioxidants.
Even though pumpkin is slightly higher in carbs, the protein and fiber content means it’s very low-glycemic – so you can enjoy your favorite pumpkiny treats without worrying about skyrocketing blood sugar levels or getting kicked out of ketosis.
There are lots of ways to make your typical pumpkin recipes into satisfying Keto treats. If you’re following a ketogenic diet, make sure to choose keto-friendly recipes that will keep your blood sugar low and thus help you stay in the state of ketosis.
Is pumpkin keto friendly?
Pumpkin is a higher carb food but thanks to the fiber that is in it, pumpkin is considered a low carb food. That means it has a small net carb amount and that means you can enjoy it on a Keto diet. And believe me, you want to enjoy this low carb food!
You do, however, want to to be mindful of the portion size.
Can I Substitute the Almond Flour for coconut flour?
Some of these recipes call for almond flour. There are reasons that some people might not want to use almond flour, whether they don’t have it on hand, have a nut allergy or simply do not like the taste, but you can not always swap almond flour for coconut flour. It is not a 1 to 1 change. So unless you know the substitution values, I do not recommend it.
How to cook pumpkin
Most people prefer to just buy canned pumpkin. I do this often, especially when it is on sale. But it is actually very easy to cook your own pumpkin to make pumpkin puree. To make your own pumpkin puree, simply cut the pumpkin in half. Remove the seeds, place the pumpkin cut side down on a baking sheet, preferably lined with parchment paper.
Place the baking sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven and back for 35 to 50 minutes, depending on the size of the pumpkin. Once the pumpkin is soft, let it cool and scoop out the inside of the pumpkin. Then, mash the inside into a puree or use a food processor.
