Low Carb Pecan Pie Recipe

I’d say pecan pie takes runner up to pumpkin pie for all-time favorite Thanksgiving desserts. I’d say no holiday is complete without a slice of both in my belly after turkey dinner. And now that I’ve given you a keto pecan pie to indulge in, there’s no excuse not to stay low carb and enjoy your holiday favorites.

This sugar-free pecan pie is the perfect combination of sweet and salty. A heapful of pecans fills this sweet custard based pie. It’s best served with a scoop of low carb vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Are Pecans Keto?

Most nuts are keto approved although some contain a higher amount of carbs than others. One cup of chopped pecans contains 4 grams net carbs. This entire pie uses 1/2 cup chopped pecans; therefore, the nuts don’t attribute to that many carbs in one slice.

Make Ahead Holiday Dessert

I’m all about saving time when it comes to making Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners. Those meals require a lot of preparation and time in the kitchen to pull off a successful family gathering. Most of the time, I’m in desperate need for more oven space. That’s why I like to implement make ahead keto recipes whenever possible. This keto pecan pie can be made ahead of time. It’s best if you make it 1-2 days ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until you go to serve it.
