I admit, I wasn’t a huge pecan pie lover before keto, but since making the big diet change, I’ve found myself actually enjoying sweets. I think it’s the lack of sugar! I always felt guilty and had an upset stomach when I had treats before but now we can actually enjoy it without all the guilt!

For this recipe, I used an 8-inch pie crust. If you have a bigger pie pan, I recommend doubling both the crust and the filling.

As well, for the pecans, I liked mine whole but you can chop them up into halves or diced.
