Keto Pecan Butter Tarts

Keto Pecan Butter Tarts are a low carb version of Canada’s favorite dessert! Sweet, rich and guilt-free.

Before I started following the Keto diet, I ate butter tarts a few times a week. Irvings, a local gas station near us, sells the BEST butter tarts. I sighed a little with each bite as they were that good.

I couldn’t eat them anymore because they were packed full of no-no ingredients, but I often thought of their yummy taste. I missed my late night indulgences.

Keto Pecan Butter Tarts

I came across a recipe for Keto Butter Tarts on The Hungry Elephant and knew I had to try them. I added pecans and used Stevia as the sweetener in mine. 

OMG they were delicious! I recommend serving them after they have cooled down a tad from coming out of the oven. They are gooey and sweet. 

If you let them cool, they are still good, but you’ll get a better texture if you heat them up to eat them.

Most of these ingredients you should be able to find at your local grocery store. Some of them you may have to look in the Natural/Organic section. A healthy grocery store should definitely have them. You could also order them online. I like Natura Market (if you’re in Canada).

You’ll need for the crust:

How to Make Keto Pecan Butter Tarts

Start by preheating your oven to 350F. Grease a muffin tin with butter.

Add coconut flour, eggs, stevia and melted butter to a bowl and stir to combine. Add a scoop of the mixture to each muffin tin and press down to create a bowl covering the sides and bottom.

Add the eggs, butter, brown sugar alternative, vanilla and heavy cream to a pot over medium heat and whisk to combine. Keep whisking until the butter is melted and sugar alternative is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in the pecans.

Pour the filling into each prepared tart shell. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until the filling is set and golden. Let cool for 10 minutes before devouring each sweet bite.
