Yes, we’ve been making lots of low carb and keto recipes with pumpkin here lately – tis the season, we’re still pretty much stuck at home due to the pandemic and we’re all pumpkin fans around here. So we’ve made pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie and pumpkin muffins so far — and a keto pumpkin spice ice cream that was amazing that I still have to post – and last night, we made these delicious Keto Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting.

I use this cream cheese frosting for many recipes – I top pumpkin muffins with it too and while this recipe is similar to the muffins, the keto pumpkin bars are a little moister and denser…more cake like and perfect with coffee!

These days, my sugar substitute go-tos are Swerve or Lakanto Monkfruit. I don’t think I have a favorite among the two – the both produce the same results and bake well. I typically just use the first one I grab in my pantry!

With only 4g of net carbs per serving, this is the perfect Fall treat. You can double the recipe and store these in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. My sons love these cold, so I usually pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.

Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects!
