This White Chocolate Amaretto Pecan Pie is a play on the classic chocolate bourbon pecan pie except it has no corn syrup, is more delicious, and more elegant for a holiday table or even just a Saturday, dontcha think?

This ain’t no classic Pecan Pie.

Of course it’s chock full of delicious, toasty nuts and the dreamy brown sugar filling, but there’s absolutely no corn syrup in sight, and I’m willing to bet this pie will rival the best pecan pie you’ve ever eaten.

In fact, I would put it up against your grandmama’s chocolate bourbon pecan pie any day.

Yep, I said it.

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

The origins for this White Chocolate Amaretto Pecan Pie came from the recipe card of a friend of a friend’s grandmother’s Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie. Except I wasn’t a fan of that pie AT ALL. Y’all, it was terrible.

The chocolate mixed w/ the corn syrup and made it taste like, well, crappy chocolate syrup. I couldn’t taste the bourbon, the cooking temp was too high, the cooking time was too long, and my chocolate bourbon pecan pie ended up completely overcooked. Eww.

So, I threw that card in the trash, started from scratch, and came up with this astoundingly delicious White Chocolate Amaretto Pecan Pie instead.

Keto Pecan Pie

Clearly this is not a keto pecan pie, but you can absolutely make some substitutions to cut the sugar. I will be honest, I have not tested all of these together myself, but I did make the pie using just the sugar-free syrup and had no issues.

I have used all of these products before in some capacity so I believe they will hold up nicely for this easy pecan pie with no issues. Let me know if you try them and make this a full-blown KETO White Chocolate Amaretto Pecan Pie!

  1. Try out this Keto Coconut Flour Crust! Just cook the shell beforehand and cover the edges of the crust before baking to ensure they don’t get burned.
  2. Substitute white chocolate chips with sugar-free white chocolate chips.
  3. Substitute the brown sugar for a sugar-free alternative like Swerve, Sukrin Gold, or Lakanto Monkfruit.
  4. Decrease the Amaretto to 1 tbsp.
  5. Keep an eye on the pie while it’s in the oven. Sugar-free syrups and sugars can brown and burn easily so make sure this glorious pecan pie isn’t cooking too quickly!
