Recipe: Keto Pumpkin Fritters


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (make sure it’s unsweetened)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for added flavor)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Cooking oil for frying (choose one suitable for high heat, like avocado oil)


Preparing the Pumpkin Fritter Batter:
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the canned pumpkin puree, almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese (if using), chopped fresh parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined.
  2. Crack the eggs into the bowl and mix them into the pumpkin mixture until you have a smooth batter.
Frying the Fritters:
  1. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add enough cooking oil to coat the bottom.
  2. Once the oil is hot, use a spoon to drop portions of the pumpkin batter into the skillet. Flatten each portion slightly with the back of the spoon to form a fritter shape.
  3. Fry the fritters for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. You may need to adjust the heat to prevent burning.
  4. Once the fritters are cooked to your liking, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  1. Serve the Keto Pumpkin Fritters hot as a snack, appetizer, or side dish. They’re delicious on their own or with a keto-friendly dipping sauce of your choice.
