No need to miss out this holiday season with these low-carb, keto pecan pie dessert recipes. Pecans are a really smart keto ingredient. They have one of the highest fat contents (around 87%!) of any nut. Only pili nuts beat them, with up to 93% fat.
Squeeze a pecan kernel between your finger and thumb and you’ll see! Even better, it’s mostly monounsaturated fats, including oleic acid, which is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Putting all that aside, pecans are just delicious: sweeter than walnuts, toothsome and filling. These recipes combine pecans with pumpkin, cinnamon, chocolate and maple syrup for the most delicious results.

2. Classic Low Carb/Keto Pecan Sandies
These cookies also don’t spread in the oven, so you slice the dough, place on a baking sheet and bake. They are fool proof and turn out perfect every time! The shortbread dough is also a great base for your preferred add-ins if you aren’t a fan of pecans. Nuts, spices, seeds and even berries would work great.
