Helpful Tips and FAQs


When making substitutions of any kind, keep in mind that the nutritional information per serving will change.


I use Splenda granulated whenever possible as it does not negatively impact my blood sugar. I find that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols cause my blood sugar to rise. If this is not a concern for you or you have a preferred sweetener, by all means, make substitutions that suit your preferences and dietary needs. Keep in mind that substituting the sweetener may change the overall nutritional information.


You can substitute the butter for canola oil or an oil of choice that is heat resistant. Margarine or butter blends are not recommended. Be advised that the nutritional information will need to be adjusted according to substitutions.

Ratio Granola Cereal

Ratio makes other types of keto-friendly granola that are easily interchangeable with the toasted almond granola. If choosing a different brand or product, be sure to take into consideration the change in net carbs.

Catalina Crunch Cereal

Catalina Crunch Cereals are perfect cereals for making crusts, such as chocolate crumb crust and graham cracker crust substitutions. You could make an almond flour crust if you are unable to obtain Catalina Crunch cereal.

Jordans Skinny Syrup

The Jordan Skiiny Suyrups are p[perfect for adding to recipes without adding carbs and calories. The only substitution that comes to mind is the Sugar-Free Torani Pumpkin Spice Syrup or Stevia Pumpkin Spice Drops. If you use the sugar-free Pumpkin Stevia Drops, you will need to adjust the amount of sweetener you add,

Walden Farms Syrup

The Walden Farms Pancake syrup is the perfect syrup to use as a binder that does not add calories or carbs. As an alternative, you could use a little canola oil or melted butter instead. Be aware that it will change the nutritional outcome.

Pumpkin Puree

We used canned pumpkin puree, but you could easily substitute it for fresh homemade pumpkin puree. Do not use Pumpkin Pie filling as it contains sugar.

Where can I buy low-carb cereals used in this recipe? (and others)

The USA – Many supermarkets in the US sell the Catalina Crunch Brand and the Ratio brand in the cereal aisle. King Arthur keto Wheat Flour is in the baking aisle. Walden Farms is available at some health food stores and keto shops. Jordan’s Skinny Syrups are available online and in Keto shops but only in a few stores.

In Canada – Catalina Crunch and Ratio Cereal are not available in stores (that I have found) but they are available online, through Amazon and Low Carb Grocery Canada. Walden Farms products are available at Ideal Protein Weight Loss centers (some – not all), some grocery stores, such as Foodland and also at Low Carb Grocery Canada and Amazon. Jordan’s Skinny Syrups are available;e online at Amazon and Low Carb Grocery Canada and in some Winners and HomeSense stores, as well as some real Canadian Superstores (No Frills) and Ideal Protein Weight Loss Center s and Keto Shops. King Arthur Keto Wheat flour is available at Low Carb Grocery Canada and Amazon. Some Keto shops carry these products as well.

Do I need to pre-bake the crust?

I recommend pre-baking the crust so that it will be crisp and not fall apart. If you are pressed for time, you can eliminate the pre-baking but the crust will likely be soft and get soggy after a day or so.

Allowing the crust to cool before adding the rest of the layers, will help it retain its crispness.

Should these Squares be served warm or cold?

Serving the Sugar Free Pumpkin Cheesecake squares after they have cooled will help them to keep their shape. If they are not given adequate time to set up, they may be too soft to retain their square shape when cut, but they taste good either way.

Storing and Freezing Instructions

These Diabetic Sugar Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for up to one week.

If freezing, place in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap for up to one month. When thawing, be advised the crunchy topping will not be as crunchy as it was when it was freshly baked.
