With temperatures dropping, the fall is when we like to turn to decadent, comforting desserts that give us that warm feeling. Fall is also the time when the fruit is at its ripest and most available. But if you are on a keto diet, can you enjoy all those good things?
While it’s true that a lot of fruit is high in carbohydrates and would be challenging to include in a keto diet, a lot of berries are pretty low-carb and full of nutrients. And not all golden dessert treats need to contain wheat flour and rice either.
12 Best Low Carb Keto Desserts
Here are 12 of the best keto fall desserts that will warm your heart, keep your tastebuds happy, and that fit right in with your low-carb keto diet. (We’ll cover both keto fall desserts you’ll need to make yourself and those you can buy, so you can pick and choose which is best for you!)
Beautiful ripe orange pumpkins are a symbol of fall, and this recipe from Gimme Delicious is low in carbs and high in fat, with lots of vitamins and minerals. It uses almond flour and powdered Erythritol instead of sugar, so ticks all the boxes. Pumpkin cheesecake is always a winner!
This recipe from I Breathe I’m Hungry gives you a chance for apple dessert pleasure without giving up on your keto diet and is another excellent use of almond flour and Erythritol sweetener. It’s easy to make, foolproof, and delicious. If you want to take the time to arrange the slices carefully, this would be perfect when you have guests and enjoy a dessert with a wow factor. The same site has a recipe for a low-carb cinnamon apple crumb cake too.
3-Ingredient Double Chocolate Mousse
You won’t believe you’re allowed to eat this chocolate mousse recipe from Cafe Delights! Real chocolate hit to make your fall eating experience an absolute joy. It uses full-fat coconut cream as its keto-friendly base and unsweetened cocoa powder and a little 70% dark chocolate for that rich chocolatey taste. It also contains plenty of potassium, calcium, and other useful things.
Another great recipe majoring on a pumpkin is this Australian recipe from Yummy Inspirations. This recipe promises to be low carbs and looks gorgeous. The recipe uses coconut flour as a wheat flour substitute and coconut oil or butter for frying. It takes just 10 minutes to go from raw ingredients until ready for the table.

Who doesn’t like brownies? They can be tricky when you’re not using wheat flour, but this brownie recipe from Gimme Delicious nails it. They’ll be ideal for making with your family as the holidays draw closer and you’re looking for activities you can do inside.
Pumpkin Spice Donut
Often we don’t have time to prepare and cook our meals, especially desserts. That’s where companies like PBH Foods come in. Ordinary donuts are off-limits on a keto diet – 51g of carbs, ouch! –but PBH’s Keto Pumpkin Spice Donut fills that donut space beautifully. Not just keto-friendly, but dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, non-GMO, and only 4g net carbs in each one.
Keto Fudge Cookies
Chocolate cookies aren’t usually something you can eat on keto – so that’s why we made some! Our keto fudge cookies are keto-friendly and utterly satisfying. If you’re looking for cookies so you can join in with the fall festivities, you must have these!
Keto Cinnamon Toaster Pastries
Pop-Tarts and other toaster pastries are most definitely out on a keto diet, so we created these keto-friendly cinnamon toaster pastries that most definitely hit the spot! Cinnamon is delicious year-round but feels right when the nights are getting cold.
Bagels aren’t just for mornings; you can enjoy them as keto fall desserts too! Bagels are a part of our culture but are way too carb-rich for a ketogenic diet, so we decided to make keto bagels. Our Everything Bagel is a good first step, but our Cinnamon Raisin Bagel hits those keto dessert cravings.
So you see, when you want a fall dessert when you’re on a keto diet, the only problem is too much choice. These are some of our favorites, but a few minutes of searching the internet, and you’ll come up with way more.
