When it comes to making this crust you have a couple of options. You can use a combination of pecan meal and almond flour the way the recipe is written or use all pecan or almond flour instead. In either case, you are getting a buttery richly flavored crust.
It’s vital you make certain that you are using pumpkin puree and not pumpkin filling in the recipe. You want the canned puree that has no sweetener and not the filling that is loaded with sugar.
Although not the original recipe, I Iike adding the orange extract to pumpkin pies. It’s something my daughter Michelle taught me. The hint of orange flavor really brings out the pumpkin flavor.
This recipe calls for pumpkin pie spice for ease but if you prefer you can make your own pumpkin pie spice blend. Just add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1/2 a teaspoon of ground ginger, 1/8 of a teaspoon of clove powder, and 1/8 of a teaspoon of allspice.
Lisa and I share a love for baking and when she realized that it was not too difficult to transform her favorite recipes into low-carb keto options, she rolled up her sleeves and began to work. Baking with keto ingredients has a bit of a learning curve but once you master it, the sky is the limit.
Her pumpkin cheesecake was revamped easily with minimal fuss. Today she is able to serve her family a healthy keto version.
Thank you Lisa for inspiring, and showing us that it is possible to make this way of eating a way of life.

My failed attempts when I first went keto are what caused me to be very intentional with my Keto Baking recipes. I threw away so many ingredients in the beginning and I never want anyone to be so frustrated that they give up on the diet before they can see long-lasting results.
Even though those early days were not fun, the fact that I stayed the course has made this journey very rewarding. Besides, if I had quit at the first sign of struggle, I would not have had the opportunity to engage with you all.

Join Our Jesus Keto Movement
As Christians Randy and discovered that in order to find true transformation in all areas of our lives, we needed to align our walk with our talk. And this included the foods we would use to nourish our bodies.
In a bold and maybe even a bit controversial move in January of 2014, we decided to make our keto lifestyle a fast unto the Lord. It’s was after we were led by the Holy Spirit to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet that our lives transformed in ways we could have never imagined.
Today we are not only experiencing greater health, but our walk with Christ has also grown by leaps and bounds. It’s our belief that being in ketosis has heightened our awareness of God’s presence and can explain why we saw spiritual growth along with physical benefits.
I encourage you to open your hearts and minds to the same possibility. Perhaps being in a state of ketosis isn’t just beneficial to your health goals, maybe when our bodies are running optimally we can hear his promptings more clearly.
To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.
We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
Note that once you click the link you will be prompted to answer a few questions that ensure that you understand what this group stands for.
