My Keto Pecan Pie Bars is a delicious naturally sweetened no sugar dessert. These bars are perfect from the dessert plate to the lunchbox.

Pecan Pie is bit of a classic recipe so it was worth creating something that we can enjoy with out the all the sugar.

Rather than just make a keto pecan pie I decided to make them into bars. I don’t know about you I do prefer bars (or slices) rather a pie as it is easier to cut and store in the fridge or freezer. No matter which way you slice it this is still one of the best keto pecan pie recipes that you will make. Oh and easy!

THE INGREDIENTS

Most of the ingredients used will possibly be in your keto pantry right now. You need

  • Butter, salted is fine
  • Sweetener. While I use Sukrin products feel free to use your own preferred sweeteners and adjust the sweetness to your taste
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt flakes
  • Almond meal or almond flour
  • Sukrin Gold granular or Lakanto Gold Monkfruit. A brown sweetener is far better to use in a pecan pie. It gives the traditional caramel flavour we all associate with a traditional pecan pie recipe.
  • Eggs. I always use the freshest of eggs at room temperature in all my baking.
  • Cinnamon
  • Sukrin Gold Fibre Syrup. I use this as a substitute for traditional syrup. It does contain IMO and can raise blood glucose in some. Alternatively, you can increase the amount of gold granular sweetener (or lakanto) uo to 1 cup and add some maple extract or maple flavoured syrup instead
  • Pecans. Any kind of nut or mixed nuts can be used in this recipe.

baking pecan bars faqs

  • I use a Smeg Fan Forced oven.  If using a static oven increase the temperature by a further 10°C.
  • You can use different sized baking trays and this recipe was also tested increased by 1/3 in a 33 x 23 cm brownie tin. If using a baking tay with removable base place a baking tray directly under the tray. This is because it will likely to drip with a little butter and syrup before baking.
  • Line the tray so your keto pecan bars are super easy to remove from the tin.
  • When testing if they are ready the centre will still be wobbly and the edges slightly firm. Allow to cool at room temperature and then refrigerate for at least a few hours but preferably overnight before cutting.
  • Serve with a scoop of Macadamia Keto Ice Cream. #perfection

  1. I made these yesterday, the recipe is really easy with simple pantry ingredients and they taste delicious. I had visitors who loved them too. I did half golden monk fruit syrup and half maple flavoured, next time will just do the maple. So yummy. Thanks again Megan, another winner.

  2. Pecan pie has always been one of my favourite desserts. But yup, these bars are just as good if not better. And so much easier to make. A mouth full of yumminess!

  3. 5 stars
    I used walnuts as I ran out of pecans and had a huge amount of walnuts. I used the maple syrup you suggested instead of the Sukrin Gold syrup. Turned out perfect. Its very moreish so will have to pace myself! Beautiful and easy recipe. Thanks Megan. Another winner.

  4. 5 stars
    Made these today for a coffee date with my mum and sister.
    I made the recipe with the maple syrup instead of the Sukrin and they turned out perfectly. Both my mum and sister took leftovers home and my 7 year old LOVED them!
    A new family favourite! These might even beat the caramel tarts! 🤔
