Keto Key Lime Pie from gnom-gnom.com

Ingredient

For the Keto Graham Cracker Crust

  • 192 g almond flour or meal (both work great!)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup powdered xylitol or sweetener of choice, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 56 g melted unsalted grass-fed butter or ghee/coconut oil, as needed

For the Keto Key Lime Pie

  • 400 g avocado about 3
  • 250 g coconut cream chilled (see notes)**
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated key lime zest
  • 80 ml freshly squeezed key lime juice to taste
  • 1/3-1/2 cup powdered xylitol or sweetener of choice, to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon kosher salt to taste

Instructions

For the Keto Graham Cracker Crust

1 – Lightly toast almond flour in a skillet or pan over medium heat, until fully golden and fragrant (2-4 minutes). This is very important taste-wise, so don’t skip!

2 – Transfer toasted almond flour to a medium bowl, and mix in sweetener, cinnamon and salt. Add in butter, mix until thoroughly combined, and press into an 8 or 9-inch pie dish. Allow to come to room temperature and freeze while you make the pie filling.

 

For the Keto Key Lime Pie

1 – Blend all the filling ingredients (starting with the lower amounts) together using an immersion blender (or high speed blender) until creamy smooth. Taste for sweetness, tanginess and seasoning and adjust accordingly. Key limes can vary a lot in taste, so start with the lower amount and add to taste (keeping in mind that the flavors will develop while chilling).

2 – Spread the key lime filling over the graham crust-lined pie and refrigerate preferably overnight (the key lime kick becomes so much better!). But if in a pickle you can always pop it in the freezer for an hour or so.

3 – Keep in the fridge for 3-4 days, and frozen for a month or two.

Instructions

1- Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C). Place 6 baking dishes in a large roasting pan. Bring a pot of water to a boil.

2 – In a medium saucepan, combine cream and 3 tbsp of erythritol.

3 – Split the vanilla bean lengthwise. Scrape its seeds into the saucepan, then add the pod. Heat gently on medium temperature just until the mixture starts to bubble a little (around 7 minutes).

4 – In the meantime, whisk the egg yolks with remaining erythritol and salt. Use a large mixing bowl and an electric mixer. Mix until the mixture gets pale yellow.

5 – Start adding the hot cream mixture into the yolk mixture. It might be best to use a ladle. You want to prevent the eggs from curdling, that’s why you need to add only a small amount of cream at first and whisk to combine. Next, add two ladles of cream mixture, one at a time, and whisk after each addition. Continue in the same manner, until you mix in all the remaining cream mixture.

6 – Strain through a fine sieve into a large cup. You want to get rid of the vanilla pod and any bits of cooked egg, but try to force the vanilla seeds through the sieve

7 – Pour custard into baking dishes. Place the roasting pan in the oven.

8 – Pour enough boiling water in the pan to come halfway up the sides of the dishes.

9 – Bake until custards are set (around 35 minutes). When shaken, they should tremble slightly in the middle. Don’t let them get too firm.

10 – Remove dishes from hot water and let them cool on a wired rack for up to 30 minutes. Then, cover them with a foil and place them in the fridge for at least 2 hours (overnight is best).

11 – Before serving, sprinkle about ½ tbsp of powdered erythritol over each creme brulee. Use a blow torch to caramelize it. Erythritol will not caramelize as well as sugar, but it will do the job well enough to offer a similarly crispy experience

12 – If you don’t own a torch, you can use a broiler, but watch really closely for when the topping is melted. It is advised that you put the creme brulees in a freezer for 15 minutes prior to caramelizing, to make sure the custards remain cold after “bruleeing.”

13 – Let the creme brulee sit for a couple of minutes before serving. Enjoy every bit of it!
