Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! What’s more classic for Thanksgiving than pumpkin pie? It’s pretty hard to beat. I love the idea of individual portions, though. The solution? I came up with these easy pumpkin pie cupcakes with crumble topping. They are conveniently individual sized!
If you already made your mains and sides like keto green bean casserole and still searching for a last-minute Thanksgiving dessert, these low carb pumpkin pie cupcakes check all the boxes. Creamy pumpkin pie spiced filling? Check. Quick and easy to make? Check.
A unique cinnamon crumble topping to take your pumpkin experience up a notch? Maybe not what you were expecting, but totally check. (And, you’ll see why it’s there when you try it! Otherwise, if you’re short on time, you can keep it simple by crowning the cupcakes with a big dollop of sugar-free whipped cream instead.)
Yes, these gluten-free, low carb pumpkin cupcakes are the perfect sugar-free and paleo replacement for a sugar-filled pumpkin pie. I didn’t bother with a crust, because they are faster to make without one. And let’s face it – the filling is the best part of pumpkin pie, anyway.
It may be a little late to be posting a Thanksgiving recipe, but if you’re looking for one at the last minute, I highly recommend these low carb cupcakes. With only 10 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep time, they are an excellent sugar-free holiday dessert to make when you’re in a rush.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Place 10 parchment paper muffin cups in a muffin pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (pumpkin puree, coconut cream, eggs, and vanilla extract).
- Stir the dry ingredients (coconut flour, erythritol, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, and sea salt) into the batter. Spoon the batter into the muffin cups, filling almost all the way up (the muffins will rise as they bake, but sink soon after).
- To make the crumble topping, mix together the erythritol, coconut flour, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Stir in the coconut cream and break apart the pieces with a spoon, until the mixture is crumbly. (If it's too powdery, gradually add a little more cream until it's crumbly.) Sprinkle the crumbles evenly on top of the cupcakes, pressing down slightly with the back of a spoon.
Bake for about 30 minutes (the cupcakes will be set but slightly jiggly underneath the crumble topping). Cool completely in the pan, then refrigerate for at least an hour to finish setting.
