This Keto Paleo Pumpkin Pie Fudge is made dairy free, sugar free, keto and low carb! This can also easily be nut free if needed by removing the pecans. And I've also discovered the best kept secret to breaking a weight loss plateau!
Pumpkin Pie Fudge
This easy, no bake, keto and paleo, pumpkin pie fudge is simple to make at home using just 3 main ingredients and 3 perfect spices for a decadent, creamy pumpkin flavored fudge! The keto sweetener used here is my favorite preference, pumpkin liquid stevia, but as always I have provided you some other options you might like if stevia isn't your favorite.
Easy No Bake Pumpkin Fudge
Creamy fudge without dairy? Yes, it's possible! Using coconut butter for the creaminess, which has a very mild taste and flavor, but blends in perfectly well with the pumpkin puree, is a winning combination!
We recently just moved out to the country and I have not even touched the oven, so this no bake keto pumpkin fudge is all I can handle right now. Thank God for my momma and some good friends who delivered meals! So a great dessert I can keep in the fridge for when family and friends visit our new home, is fantastic in my opinion!
Break Through a Weight Loss Plateau
I've discovered the BEST KEPT SECRET TO BREAK THROUGH A WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAU!!!! NO HUNGER, NO NEED TO GO TO A GYM!!
JUST MOVE TO ANOTHER PLACE! So simple and so exhausting you've got no time to eat and won't be hungry anyway! I have lost 4 pounds in a week without trying! It's a Miracle I tell you, I'm not complaining. Well, maybe a little complaining about all the boxes that still need to be unpacked and the issue that I can't seem to sleep past 4:15am for some reason.
But overall, it's been a good move and thankfully since this recipe is no bake, I can actually make it without trying too hard or having to use an electric stove and oven! After 18 years of a gas stove it's going to take some getting used to. So as long as I can prolong that I will, ha ha!
No but seriously I've had many, many weight loss plateaus during my life, especially before I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism so I've got some tips for you! I've dedicated a whole chapter at the beginning of my cookbook on this issue, Naturally Keto. But if you don't have my cookbook, here's a blog post on weight loss plateaus you might find helpful.

Keto Sweetener Options
- You don't have to use stevia, but I think it works better than any granulated sugar free sweetener in no bake recipes such as this.
- Liquid Allulose might be a great option!
- I'm also really love the no after taste coming from this new product by Sweetleaf that is a mix of erythritol and stevia, called Better than Sugar. I'd use the confectioners in this recipe.
- If you can find or have on hand pumpkin pie spice than you can eliminate all the spices I used and use 2 teaspoons of the pumpkin pie spice.
- Pumpkin puree is not pumpkin pie filling, it has no sugar and can be found in a can.
Keto Paleo Pumpkin Pie Fudge
Paleo Pecan Pumpkin Pie Fudge
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup coconut butter softened
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- pich salt
- 1-2 teaspoon Pumpkin Spice Liquid Stevia or Vanilla stevia
- optional topping: ¼ cup crushed pecans for topping
- If your coconut butter is too hard, place jar, without cover, in the mircowave for 30 seconds, stir well and it should be soft enough to scoop to measure.
- Place a piece of parchment, let it hang over edges for easy removal, into an 8 x 8 pan.
- Place all ingredients into a stand mixer and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetener. Spread this into the pan.
- Top with optional pecans if desired.
- Refrigerate until hardened, about 1 hour. Remove from pan onto a cutting board. Slice into 24 pieces.
- Keep refrigerated. When ready to serve allow fudge to sit out on counter to soften, about 15 minutes.
I made this today and am very disappointed. It is nothing like fudge as far as I can taste. I followed the recipe except used regular stevia and added some vanilla. It wasn't sweet at all, so I mixed in some confectioners Swerve as I didn't want to use more stevia and topped it with extra nuts. Still not impressed! Sorry!! I've used quite a few of your recipes and really like them, so don't know why this didn't work. 🙁
I'm just coming back to say these definitely need to set for awhile...or freeze for awhile; because they taste a lot different than they did when first made. Not bad at all; not really "fudge" to me, but like a heavy pumpkin pie piece, which is fine. Sorry, I should have waited to comment as I would have left a better comment!!
Can this be made with coconut oil instead of butter?
That looks delicious!
I bought a white pumpkin and I want my husband to cut it so I can cook it ! I found a recipe from you for Paleco pecan pumpkin pie fudge. I want to smooth it down than start with that to make your fudge. do you think this can work with fresh pumpkin?????? If so can you please email me and let me know. I am 65 years old and just found out my husband has border line diabetes. I would love to fix this and I would use stevia ! [email protected] ! thank you so much !
Your recipes look amazing!!! Finally some sugarfree and low carb for those with health issues like me!!!
I would love to make this (and a coupl more recipes for my son's birthday...but with my health issues I cannot tolerate butter/ coconut butter or any fats...could you please suggest what to replace it with please?
I am allergic to coconut. Would butter or ghee work well instead of coconut butter?
I am really confused how this is sugar Free? My husband is diabetic, he cannot have coconut due to the high sugar content, so how can coconut butter be sugar Free?
There is no sugar in coconut butter.This serving above is for 2 pieces equalling 2 grams of sugar. 1 piece has 1 gram of sugar. There are 12 servings. Using coconut butter and dividing it by 12 servings has 1.4 grams of carbs in 1 piece which is very good for any diabetic.
Well this sounds amazing. Wish I had found your site before Christmas!! Never mind. I have been looking for some low sugar paleo stuff to try and this sounds right up my street. Looks fantastic too.

Brenda you've done it again, this fudge looks absolutely incredible. What a perfect accomapniment to a meal. I have included it in my recipe roundup - Top 20 Low Carb Thanksgiving recipes from my favourite low carb websites. Libby
This was my first attempt at making any kind of fudge and i am really happy as it came out really well than I was expecting! I feel that cooking for a long time really helped. My family really enjoyed eating this. Thanks a lot for this wonderful recipe. 🙂
Hi Brenda, I love your website and recipes. How long will the stay in the fridge, and can you freeze this? THank you!
Mine lasted a week in the fridge and yes I would freeze and then thaw the night before you want to serve it.

Cleaneating fudge with the flavors of fall is always a good idea!
I love anything pumpkin and love even more that it is low carb and sugar free. Can't wait to try this.
Sounds yummy! But I'm wondering if you know if there could be a substitute for coconut butter? I'd love to make this TODAY ( I love pumpkin. I don't have a problem. I can stop at any time. I just don't wanna.) and I don't have it on hand. Thanks!
I made coconut butter in my Vitamix. You just need unsweetened shredded coconut.
