Keto Pecan Pie

Just in time for Thanksgiving, we now have an option for a pecan pie that is 100% Keto friendly. Now this was just a trial run but it turned out pretty dang good. We are going to try a few other methods but there is absolutely nothing wrong with this version. Now with that being said, nothing can replace a real pecan pie, but this will get you pretty close!

Note: Pay attention to pecan placement. When putting the extra pecans on top, ensure the pretty side goes up. This was just a test run so I didn’t care.

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 8tbs (1/2 cup) melted grass fed butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 2tsp cinnamon (optional)

Filling:

  • 2 cups Lakanto sugar free maple syrup
  • 4 eggs
  • 2tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 8tbs (1/2 cup) melted grass fed butter

I did not put any Keto friendly sweetener in the filling. I think I would go back and put in 1/2 a cup of brown sugar Keto sweetener next go round. You can find it here –> https://amzn.to/2Kh34su

Instructions:

Crust

You will need a 9″ pie pan. In a mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and mix well. Once well combined, add in your 1/2 cup of melted butter. Mix this really well. Then add in your 2 eggs, whipped. Mix well. I ended up just mixing with my hands to make it easy.

Once you have a dough like consistency, place the mixture into your 9″ pie pan. Here, you will need to work it around to shape the dish. This took the longest to get up and around the edge. Maybe it would have been best to place between 2 sheets of parchment paper and rolled it into the pie dough.

Once you have your pie shaped, place into your pre-heated oven at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes. Make sure you poke a few holes in the bottom so your crust doesn’t bubble.

Filling

While your crust is cookin, make your pie filling. You will add all of your ingredients to 1 mixing bowl except your pecans. Once it is all mixed and combined, add in your 2 cups of pecans. Mix well once again. Your mixture will seem too watery but don’t worry, it’s going to cook just fine.

Remove your crust from the oven. Reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees. Dump your filling into your pie dish. Before placing in the oven, add some extra pecans to the top with the pretty side facing up! Place in oven and bake for ~35 minutes. You will know when it is finished cooking as the center won’t be jiggly anymore.

After your timer goes off, remove from oven and let cool. Slice and enjoy!
