This Quick Low Carb Keto Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is dairy free, gluten free and actually does not contain any oats! It can be enjoyed cold as overnight oats or served warm! This is a perfect fall breakfast and just 4 g net carbs per serving!
Is Pumpkin Oatmeal Keto Friendly?
Pumpkin spice season is upon us and if you are following a keto diet or low carb diet you may be feeling left out as regular oatmeal is high in carbs, not keto friendly and will spike blood sugar.
Since there’s nothing quite like good ‘oats’ to start the morning and just because you may be following a low carb diet or ketogenic diet, it doesn’t mean you need to go without.
Now, you too, can enjoy all the flavors of pumpkin pie spice and the creamy texture of a keto oatmeal as an easy breakfast.
I used a mix of shelled hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax meal, coconut flour and almond flour to make them super nutritious, high protein and low carb.
Not only does this give the best texture like oatmeal, but it’s packed with flavor too. Stir though pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice and you’re transported to Autumn in an instant.
Serve Hot or Cold as an Overnight Oats Recipe
These pumpkin pie oats can be made as a quick soak cold version, prepped the night before for overnight keto oats, or warmed in a pan for a comforting pumpkin porridge style.
If serving cold, I would place these into a mason jar then cover and refrigerate overnight.
What if I can't find pumpkin pie spice?
If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice you can use 1 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. You can also make my quick and easy homemade recipe for Pumpkin Pie Spice.
What if I don't have chia seeds?
If you don’t have chia seeds you can substitute the whole chia with 1 teaspoon of whole flax seeds. If you don’t have flax, you can substitute the flax meal with 3 tablespoons ground chia.
Can I swap the almond flour?
Yes if you want to swap the almond flour, an even swap would be to use sunflower seed flour.
Can I use a different low carb sweetener?
Yes, if you want to change out the Swerve sweetener I used, you could try Pumpkin Spice Liquid Monk Fruit or Pumpkin Spice Liquid Stevia. Here's my Natural Sweeteners Guide & Conversion chart to help you.

Don’t skip on the toppings though guys, especially the nut butter, this really makes it. I love peanut butter or almond butter, but melted coconut butter is also delicious.
