Keto Holiday Pumpkin & Pecan Casserole Cups

One of my newfound favorite sides has been Sweet Potato Casserole. My good friend Kyle makes it at his annual Fallsgiving and it is divine. I never grew up eating it, so the last few years have truly been a treat. Since going keto obviously finding a lower carb version was on the radar.

This casserole the same autumn flavor, but it is made from cauliflower and pumpkin! I was going to top this with some low carb marshmallows but the sweetness of the pecan topping was enough! I split these into individual size ramekins so you could eat a guilt free portion! 4 net carbs per cup!

History of Sweet Potato Casserole

Historians suspect that “potatoe pudding” is actually a sweet potato pudding recipe. It appears in the first American cookbook published in 1796. Using marshmallows was very modern, and used to save time: housewives substituted them for meringue and whipped cream. At that time marketers of Angelus Marshmallows hired recipe developers to incorporate more marshmallows in everyday classic recipes, like finding them in marshmallow fudge and hot cocoa and then adding them to beloved candied sweet potato dish.

  2. In a large bowl, stir together cauliflower, pumpkin, sweetener, butter, vanilla, heavy cream, cinnamon, eggs, and salt until smooth. Pour equally into 4 ramekins.
  3. In another bowl, stir together sweetener, almond flour, and butter until it clumps. Stir in pecans, then spread evenly over potatoes.
