Mini Low Carb Pumpkin Pie Bites!
If you refuse to believe pumpkin season is over, we’re here to help! We thought we had posted our last pumpkin recipe (Pumpkin Pecan Tartlets for Thanksgiving) but we had to squeeze another one in! Yes, it may be December, but we had some pumpkin left that we couldn’t let go to waste. After all, shouldn’t pumpkin season be all year round? You know you are craving that pumpkin spice in the springtime, just like us…
Since we didn’t make the classic pumpkin pie this year, we decided to channel its flavors and create a fat bomb recipe. Fat bombs are an awesome part of a keto diet that give you a super boost of energy whenever you need it. When in ketosis, your body will use fat as fuel which means that you need to consume enough fats to keep your body running. Pop a delicious fat bomb in your mouth and you will instantly get the energy you need to get through the day!
These little pumpkin pie bites will allow you to pretend it’s October all year ’round while also giving you a healthy source of fat (and therefore energy!). Who doesn’t love the crisp fall weather and the colorful leaves on the ground? Enjoy a few pumpkin pie bites in the middle of summer, who cares? They’ll cool you down and remind you of fresh breezes and new beginnings. They will also give you extra energy to stay up and enjoy those summer nights! These may just be your go-to summer afternoon treat!
Of course, you may just scarf them all down in December because they’re absolutely delicious and no one can resist them once they are sitting in your freezer. For that reason, we recommend making a double, triple, or even quadruple batch to have on hand. They will keep in your freezer for months so why not make a ton now!
In this recipe, we also decided to incorporate coconut butter! Everyone’s heard of coconut oil, but coconut butter doesn’t get nearly enough attention as it should. Coconut butter is simply pureed coconut meat (or coconut manna). It tastes like coconut and has the texture of peanut butter, though a bit more firm. Coconut butter is a delicious spread – treat it as you would peanut butter but with only 1 carb per tablespoon – spread it on toast, dip some apples in it or put a scoop into your smoothies. It goes well by itself on a spoon too! It’s ideal for keto and paleo diets and we absolutely love it.
It added great texture to these pumpkin pie fat bombs without being too overpowering like a nut butter would have been.
