Fat Bomb Pumpkin Pie Patties (paleo, low-carb, keto + nut-free)

Keto Fat Bomb Pumpkin Pie Patties #paleo #lowcarb #keto #nutfreeA keto fat bomb dessert. Keto layered patties made from ground pumpkin, ground coconut and spices. Add grass-fed collagen for boosted nutrition.

Yep. There’s grass-fed collagen in these keto dessert patties! If you don’t have collagen, you’re vegan, or you have no idea what a “collagen” is, no worries. Omit the collagen from this keto recipe and it will still be delicious. Because… collagen has no taste!

A couple of months ago, I ordered grass-fed gelatin on Amazon to boost my keto recipes. Only, the grass-fed gelatin turned out to be grass-fed collagen hydrolysate. They look so similar, I totally got confused.

Gelatin congeals in water. Collagen Hydrolysate does not. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I tried to make keto gummies by adding collagen to hot tea and placing it in the fridge to set. No matter how long I left the darn things, they didn’t congeal.

I was pretty upset at first, until I realized just how awesome and keto-friendly collagen is.

It’s like keto protein powder… but BETTER.

Why I like collagen

Collagen is a protein found in the connective tissues of your body. (The protein found in the gelatin I introduced you to last week) It’s a form of fibrous protein that provides a supportive structure for our body tissues such as our muscles, bones and ligaments. As we age, we produce less and less collagen, leading to wrinkles and folds in our skin.

Using keto-tastic collagen hydrolysate may help with…

Strong bones + joints. It’s a source of proline and glycine, two building blocks of cartilage that are essential for refueling after exercise and sports.

Bright (wrinkle-free) skin. Boosts hydration, prevents deep wrinkles and maintains the health of skin.

Weight loss. Consists of 97% pure, keto-friendly protein, keeping you full and satiated. You can use it as a replacement for protein powder!

Restful sleep. By stimulating growth hormone release.

What can you do with collagen?

Collagen Hydrolysate has virtually no taste, so you can add it to everything. Keto Rocket Fuel Lattes, keto smoothies, keto tea, keto ice cream, keto soup, keto stews, everything.

My favorite way to enjoy it is blended in my daily keto rocket fuel latte. 2 tablespoons have 13 grams of easily accessible protein. Meaning, your body doesn’t have to work hard to grab the amino acids from the powder and get to work. SO much more versatile than protein powder.

A keto, low-carb layered fat bomb dessert with a pumpkin base and a vanilla top. Option to add grass-fed collagen for boosted nutrition.
  1. Line a baking sheet with two 12-count mini muffin silicon molds. Set aside.
  2. Add shredded coconut, coconut oil, stevia and salt to the bowl of your food processor. Process on high for 5-8 minutes until drippy. You may have to remove the lid a couple of times and scrape the chunky bits from the side of the bowl.
  3. Once smooth, remove ¼ cup of the coconut mixture, leaving the remaining coconut mix in the food processor bowl. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth again. If you use cold pumpkin puree, the coconut will harden. No worries, just process until smooth again.
  4. The texture of the pumpkin mixture will be similar to apple sauce.
  5. Scoop about 2 teaspoons into each muffin cup. Press down with fingers or the back of a spoon until completely flat. Then, top with reserved white coconut mixture. Transfer baking sheet to the freezer and freeze for 1 hour.
  6. Serve!
Serving Size and Nutrition: is based off 2 patties.
Coconut Butter: If you don’t have a food processor, you can get “creamed coconut” (which is coconut butter) in the Ethnic aisle of many grocery stores for a couple of dollars. Melt, then use in this recipe.

Fat Bomb Pumpkin Pie Patties #paleo #lowcarb #keto #nutfreeI weighed the shredded coconut because there are SO many styles of coconut out there and I wanted to make sure you all got the recipe bang on. Having said that, 200 grams is about 3 cups, give or take.

Making the coconut butter for this recipe will save you loads of money. The store-bought coconut butter is a bit expensive.

Once your coconut butter is nice and drippy and you’ve reserved a bit of it for the tops, add the rest of the ingredients and whiz around!

Press the pumpkin mixture into the bottom of the silicon molds, follow with coconut mix.

  1. The ingredients list does not list coconut butter, however the notes say there is… how much coconut butter is needed please?

    • Hey! The coconut butter is created when you blend the shredded coconut in your food processor. Feel free to replace with storebought coconut butter, though!

      • If I use coconut butter, does that replace just the shredded coconut in the recipe, or does it replace the shredded coconut _and_ the coconut oil?

        • This will replace the shredded coconut only, but you may need to reduce the coconut oil just a touch!

  2. I didn’t have silicone muffin pans so just out this in a square baking dish and they came out great. So yummy, thanks for this fantastic recipe!

  3. If I use store bought coconut butter, how much of it is required — how much does the coconut end up being after blended smooth?

  4. One thought? that has hepeld me and i will share? with u is remember that there is never such a thing as failing! i belive in the order through caos theory and that is there is NO SUCH THING AS FAILING! your mistakes are important in order for u to learn the lessons u need to learn to reach sucsess. Like an inventor who makes a thousand prototypes before the perfect one is made. It works in all aspects of life. All u have to do is keep being who u are and thats good enouf! YOUR WORTH IT!!!!!

  5. I’ve been watching all your educational videos and I’ve learned a lot. Luckily I’ve already been eating the gelatin in my soup everyday. I also eat Savi seeds at lunch every day, that’s gotta be good, right? My question is about which oils to eat and when. I do eat avocado, but is MCT oil better than an avocado? And for a salad, why not just use olive oil in the dressing? Its kinda confusing. I’m almost 53 and in menopause. My weight is pretty good, but I do have xtra around the belly I’d like to come off. I’d like to slowly incorporate a little more fat, like eating chicken thighs instead of breast for a change, and some yummy fatty chicken sausages from Whole Foods. Keep those educational videos coming, as to which fats are the best to eat…like a list would be good. What is the number one, and then number 2…etc. Thanks!

  6. Hi Leanne,
    Love trying your stuff!
    Can I substitute the Great Lakes gelatin for the collagen? I have lots of that on hand and would like to use more up before I buy the collagen. If it gels as gelatin does, that shouldn’t be too different in this recipe, no?

  7. This recipe sounds amazing and I cannot wait to try it! I have a question about the collagen. I have the Great Lakes collagen (in the green canister) and it says it is cold water soluble. Did you say you used this in coffee? I’ve tried regular gelatin in coffee and have trouble getting it to dissolve well, but was concerned coffee might be too hot for the collagen. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!

    • I know this is an old post, but I hope this helps someone. The collagen doesn’t gel. The gelatin does. I use the gelatin in my rocket fuel coffee instead of the collagen, though, because it’s what I have. It doesn’t end up gelling because I drink it so fast!
      A trick I learned from Knox: try letting the gelatin or collagen “bloom” for a minute in cold liquid, then add hot liquid. Stir for 5 mins until dissolved. Helps keep it from being all grainy.
