Creating a Pumpkin Spice Recipe for the Keto diet
With fall on the onset, I was really craving a pumpkin recipe. I love my pumpkin spice and I had nowhere to turn but my own kitchen. That is how this Pumpkin Spice Baby Pancake was born.
All the pumpkin spice goodies you find in the store are full of sugar. So, I decided after I made the Keto Dutch Baby Recipe that a Keto Pumpkin Dutch Baby would be a delicious way to have my fall flavors without falling off the Keto diet!

What you need to make a Dutch Baby Pancake
Making a Dutch Baby pancake is quite easy! The main piece of equipment that I highly recommend is a cast iron skillet. A cast iron skillet heats evenly, holds the heat, cooks perfectly, and makes this a great tool for making your pumpkin spice dutch baby pancake!
For the ingredients, the one thing I can't stress enough is to make sure you are using pure pumpkin puree. Don't confuse it with the canned pumpkin pie filling. The rest of the ingredients are basic pantry staples most keto kitchens will already have.
Adapt this recipe for Paleo and make it a dairy free recipe!
This Pumpkin Spice Dutch Baby Pancake recipe calls for butter. While grass-fed butter is acceptable on Paleo, some may want or need to be dairy free for allergy reasons. Just one simple swap is needed to make this recipe dairy free!
Coconut oil was my choice of ingredient to test with this recipe. Instead of the butter in the skillet, I added a tablespoon of coconut oil. If you don't care for the flavor of coconut oil, I find that Avocado Oil makes an ideal substitute as it is basically flavorless.
This recipe does not have to be made with sugar free sweetener. You can still make this recipe with maple syrup. Just omit the water from the recipe ingredients and use ⅓ cup maple syrup instead.
Make this Pumpkin Spice Dutch Baby extra special!
- Make some homemade whipped cream and add a little bit of ground cinnamon and/or ground allspice to it.
- Stir some sugar free chocolate chips into the batter instead of topping it with them, or do both!
- Want some salted caramel flavor? Skip the sugar free maple syrup and use sugar free caramel instead.
