Keto Pumpkin Cookies

You know what I miss the most while being in Keto? SUGAR! Like a brownie or cake or even gummy bears. I am always craving sugar and its so hard to get over the loss of sugar. Im always on a lookout for a great dessert that will give me that sugar feeling. So while scrolling through Pinterest, I came across a pumpkin cookie that sounded good. I love anything pumpkin! So when I find something with pumpkin and Keto, I've got to try it. 

I found the original recipe from Fit Mom Journey on Pinterest. I changed it up just a bit. I also didn't make the frosting but next time I would. I feel that they would have been better with the frosting. But It didn't stop me from eating a whole bunch of cookies! I even shared some at work, and they were pretty pleased with them! Keto for the WIN! 

Let me show you how I made these Pumpkin Cookies and what I thought about them. 

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2/3 cup Coconut Flour
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt

  • Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

    2. Beat cream cheese, butter, pumpkin puree, and powdered sweetener. 

    3.Add in the eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy.

    4. Add in the coconut flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt, stirring until just combined.
    5. Drop by cookie scoop onto the prepared baking sheets.
    6. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the edges just barely start to brown. 

    7. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to countertop to cool. 1 sheet of cookies came out a little too done, but the other was just perfect. I think next time I will bake 1 sheet at a time.  

    Is this something you would make while on Keto?

    Step by Step - Measure Stir Bake

     What's baking in your oven today? Here's the perfect accent in your kitchen, complete with icing on the cake!

    Since staring Keto again, I am constantly in the kitchen trying out new recipes and making some old ones that I know that I love! I love finding new recipes to try. When cooking for my family, I have to remember to add in carbs since the are not on the Keto diet. 

    What is your families favorite meal? My family loves Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and salad with a side of garlic bread. 

    Cook with your kids, get that kitchen messy. That's what your kids will remember. All those yummy cookies that you made together. There will always be something to clean. Take the time to create the memories with them while they are young. 

    Want to make this? I'll show you how! 

    -A Small Cutting board - Try Hobby Lobby or Marshalls
    -Fuzzing Cloth (12" x 18")

    **Best part about these supplies is that one you buy them, you can use them over and over with other projects! 

    Step 1
    Get everything you need into your work area. Open up and stir your pastes so they are ready to go. 
    Step 2
    Fuzz your transfer. Make sure you fuzz it well, especially if it's a new transfer. 

    Step 3
    Lay your transfer down in the position you would like it on the surface of choice.

    Step 4
    Use the Black Velvet Paste and cover all the words. 

    Step 5
    Remove the transfer and either place in water bath or clean immediately. Once clean let dry. Once dry, please backer back on the sticky side of the transfer. 

    Viola! You are have new piece to put in your kitchen.  When you glance at your new DIY creation, make those cookies that make the kids so happy! Even though they love the cookies today, they will love the memories later.
