THIS came out of MY kitchen! 🙂
When I saw this recipe I was sitting at my computer munching on raw pecans (as usual) and thought: no way you can make a pecan pie that beautiful LOW CARB, that actually tastes like REAL pecan pie.
I looked over the list of ingredients and – go figure:
I had everything on hand to make one!
No weird ingredients, and only one that I had to swap out for something else.
And it came out RICH, beautiful and delicious!
It all started with this Keto Pecan Pie Recipe Video on Instagram:

I started working with Legendary Foods after getting some of their amazing products in my monthly keto boxes. That’s how I scored you a discount code! They’ve been FUN to work with as an affiliate and they’ve even sponsored some of my work here including this post, the Creative Nut Butter Recipes and the Low Carb Waffles Recipe that I also use to make delicious keto muffins & pancakes.
Just LOOK at this beautiful flaky crust! 👀
I can’t stop raving over the crust. I’m not a huge fan of working with coconut flour, but this was AMAZING – so tender and flaky, yet held together perfectly!
Aaron prefers the almond meal style crust, more like shortbread, that we’ve made before. But this low carb pie crust was just as easy to make, and I liked it WAY better!
THIS was my “low carb breakfast” this morning. 🙂
That is one BEAUTIFUL slice of low carb pecan pie, don’t you agree?!
The Ingredients: My Delicious Recipe Modifications
I found the original recipe detailed out on the Legendary Foods blog here: Legendary Foods Keto Pecan Pie. I only swapped out two of the ingredients on their list: the erythritol and the sugar free maple syrup.
I don’t care for straight erythritol. It leaves a cooling/tingling effect and an aftertaste in my mouth. So in place of the erythritol I used Sweet Like Sugar by Ketologie. I also like to bake with Swerve sweetener.
I didn’t have sugar free maple syrup. I did however have sugar free ChocZero Maple Pecan Syrup – which was a perfect substitution! 🙂
And of course the main star of this recipe is the amazingly delicious and super popular Pecan Pie Almond Butter by Legendary Foods.
I put all of my ingredients & amounts (based on the labels on the brands I used) into the MyFitnessPal recipe calculator, and cut my pie into 8 decent sized slices.
It came out to 6 net carbs per decadently rich slice – and worth every carb!
The original recipe came out to 3 net carbs per slice, but they cut it into 10 smaller pieces instead of eight. I also counted the eggs at .4 carbs each, and different brands of coconut flour may vary in macros.
The hardest part about this recipe was waiting for it to cool before cutting into it to try a bite! 🙂
It was definitely a bit more gooey in the middle while it was still warm…
But who could resist?! 😛
It was even better the next day, once it set up nicely overnight. 😉
I’ve had SO much fun with the Legeandary Foods flavored nut butters over the last few months, but this recipe was by far the BEST.
Aaron called it “addictive.” Which was a high compliment considering pecan pie is his FAVORITE dessert, and one he’ll admittedly risk a “carb crash” over.
He’s been looking for a low carb / sugar free pecan pie recipe for months now… and he was over-the-top impressed with this one. 🙂
In his words: It’s like eating the real thing, without the immediate sick feeling you get after the first two bites of “the real thing.”
A keto friendly low carb pecan pie is a dream come true!
This recipe really surprised me…
I always hesitate to try out fancy new keto recipes because I hate to waste expensive ingredients on something that might be a total flop – or completely inedible.
Fortunately, this recipe turned out to be a winner. 🙂
I’m limiting myself to one slice a day. I had one last night after it cooled, and my second slice for breakfast this morning.
We’re down to two slices now (Aaron has had 3 today already, lol) and I just had to order some more sweetener because he’s already anxious to bake another one! 🙂
It’s THAT good.

p.s. I’m going to try their recipe for low carb brownies next. Let me know if you try one of their fun recipes – and how it turns out.
Of course if you don’t feel like getting this fancy with dessert, you can always make Pecan Pie Fat Bombs. 😉
