Thankfully, keto friendly recipes offer all the flavors of traditional pie while staying within your healthy range. In this article, we’re going to show you how to make an irresistible sugar-free keto pecan pie.

Crust

Keto pecan pies have a delicate and flaky crust that perfectly seals in the delicious filling. Made with almond flour, coconut flour, butter and other natural ingredients like cinnamon and sugar – it’s sure to please even the pickiest palate!

Not only is this pie easy to make but perfect for holiday celebrations as well; you can store it at room temperature up to one day or in the fridge for up to a week.

The filling is made with eggs, granulated sweetener, butter, cream and vanilla extract. Once poured into a prebaked pie crust and baked – make sure you cover its edges with tin foil so they don’t burn!

Freezing

Keto pecan pies are the ideal keto dessert to make ahead of time, as they’re simple to whip up and freeze for later.

Individual slices of pie can even be frozen and served on their own. To prevent freezer burn, wrap the entire pie in foil or plastic before freezing.

This low carb option is perfect for Thanksgiving or any other holiday.

To prepare the filling, melt butter and two sweeteners in a saucepan over low heat. Be careful not to overheat. Stir occasionally while keeping an eye on temperature.

Once the mixture has cooled, add eggs and whisk to blend. Take the pan off the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.

If the pie filling crystallizes after cooling, simply microwave it for approximately 20 seconds to restore its smooth consistency.

Serving

Keto pecan pies make the ideal holiday dessert, being low in carbohydrates and gluten free. Topped off with keto vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, they will surely satisfy all your sweet tooth desires!

Make this pie by starting by making the crust. Combine butter, egg, and almond flour until well mixed; press into a pie pan and crimp the edges if desired. Place into oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.

Next, prepare the filling. Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in brown sugar swerve and maple syrup (if desired) to the mixture.

Stir until fully combined. Allow to cool slightly, then fold in the eggs.
