These Keto Pumpkin Butter Cookies were inspired by my Keto Cinnamon Butter Cookies recipe. When I shared that recipe, I had no idea that so many of you would try it, love it, and make it your own. I have to admit I was blown away by your response to such a simple recipe. That’s one of the reasons I decided to try to give you something just as simple now that we are nearing the holiday season.
You’d have to be living under a rock not to have noticed that it’s officially fall! Yay! I love fall, and I love all things pumpkin. Unfortunately, we have to be very careful this time of year because as I’m sure you know, the colder weather brings sweet treats and winter clothes. Did I say winter clothes? Yes, yes I did.
Why would winter clothes be an issue? Well, believe it or not getting bundled up can cause you to gain weight. Even the great Arnold knew this secret because word has it he would wear cut off shirts in the winter so he could always see his abs! I’m not saying you should wear summer clothes year round, but don’t forget to take a look at your body frequently during the winter, step on a scale, and stay focused. Keto is not a summer sport. This is a lifestyle!
Okay, now that the pep talk is out of the way, let’s talk about these keto pumpkin butter cookies. These bad boys are delicious. These cookies would pair perfectly with a keto egg nog. They are lightly pumpkin flavored. I didn’t want to go overboard with the pumpkin because I didn’t want the carb count to be too high. If you would like to pack a pumpkin punch you can always add more pumpkin pie spice, but I wouldn’t add any more pumpkin unless you have carbs to spare.
