Equipment

  • Large bowl
  • Pie pan
  • medium saucepan

Ingredients

For the Keto Pie Crust

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour see Notes
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter very cold
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

For the Keto Pecan Filling

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Brown Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups raw pecan halves divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  • Make the keto pie crust by mixing together the almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, and kosher salt in a large bowl.
  • Add in the cold unsalted butter and use either a pastry cutter or the back of a fork to cut the butter into the flour until a crumbly mixture forms.
  • Pour in the beaten egg and mix until a dough comes together, then transfer to a pie pan and spread into the pan. Freeze crust for at least 10 minutes, then par-bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Make the keto pecan filling by melting butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, then adding in the brown sugar Swerve. Whisk until Swerve has fully dissolved, then remove from heat.

  • Top with remaining pecan halves in a circular pattern, then bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove pie from oven and let cool for at least an hour before slicing and serving.

Notes

  • Almond Flour: The type of almond flour you use in this pie crust is very important. Avoid almond meal, and instead use fine blanched almond flour for an extra light texture!
  • Let filling cool before whisking in the eggs and remaining ingredients. If the filling is still too hot, you risk cooking and scrambling your eggs in your filling.
  • Make it Dairy Free: Use a keto-friendly dairy-free butter.
