Keto pecan pie cheesecake with crunchy pecan crust and pecan keto caramel topping is one of the best keto desserts.

My keto family and other non keto family members and friends love this cake! Crust is with roasted pecans and so flavorful. Cream cheese layer is everything what a cheesecake should be. Topping with roasted pecans is just divine.

Don’t skip any of these delicious layers! You will get a really special keto treat you can make for every family gathering or celebration.

Keto holidays dessert

Holiday season is approaching and I know that this delicious keto cheesecake with pecan crust and pecan topping will be the center of your festive keto dinner.

Roasted nuts

Roast your nuts before grinding! This will elevate the flavor of nuts, it will be so much tastier. Don’t skip this part because it makes huge difference. Also, don’t roast for too long. 2 minutes on a hot pan or 5 minutes in a preheated oven will be just fine. Pecans are burning fast so you need to be especially careful with them.

Keto pecan pie cheesecake topping

To get that pecan pie flavor combined with cheesecake you need delicious topping! Don’t be afraid of that butter you use on top and use some good quality butter with good grass fed buttery flavor.

Good quality low carb sweetener will also give “original taste” to this low carb pecan pie cheesecake. It would be great if you could use brown low carb sweetener. However, you may use a combination of erythritol with a few drops of stevia and a result will be very satisfying. I was using erythritol and it worked perfectly. It didn’t get that deep brown color but the taste is really amazing.

Serving keto pecan cheesecake

Serve this pecan cheesecake as a keto dessert for any celebration! It’s fantastic as a keto breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea. I like to have keto sweets in the evening with a cup of tea. That’s my favorite part of the day!

  1. Turn on the oven to 180 C/350 F.
  2. Roast 1 cup of almonds and 1/2 cup of pecans for the crust plus 2/3 cup for the topping on a hot pan for 2 minutes. Don't roast it for longer because pecans start to burn very fast. When roasted, set aside part of pecans for the topping. You will need it later.
  3. Grind the nuts for the crust in a food processor. Add almond flour, sweetener and melted butter. Mix for a minute more and make a dough with your hands.
  4. Press the dough in a round cake tin, layered with a parchment paper.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven on 180 C/350 F for 10 minutes or until started to be golden brown on the edges.
  6. Prepare cream cheese mixture. Mix or whisk cream cheese with sour cream, sweetener, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon.
  7. Pour the mixture over the crust and bake on 160 C/ 320 F for 30 minutes or until baked (not runny). When it's baked leave it to cool for 15 minutes and put remaining roasted pecans on top.
  8. Cheesecake might crack on the edges but don't worry, it will be covered with topping.
  9. How to make keto topping?
  10. Melt the butter with sweetener and whisk on a low heat until butter start to be golden brown.
  11. Add heavy whipping cream, whisk well to combine and pour gently over the cake with pecans on top.
  12. Set the cake aside and leave it to cool for few hours before serving.
  13. Enjoy!


This cake is for round cake tin 23 cm/9 inch diameter.

      Confectioners is also OK, powdered gives smooth texture.

    The topping seems to be a complete failure. I’m a seasoned keto baker but this just doesn’t make any sense or work. Is there some way to thicken the topping?

      Hi Lorraine, if you make it according to instructions and leave it in the fridge for few hours it will thicken every time.

    The texture of mine came out fluffy and airy almost like scrambled eggs. What did I do wrong? Is it supposed to be more dense and creamy? I’m at high altitude so could that be it? Did I overbake it? Otherwise it was so tasty and delicious 😍

      Hi Michelle, I really don’t know. It’s possible that you over baked it. I’m happy to hear you love it despite this little accident! πŸ™‚

    Any tips for making the crust. I just attempted this and it was a super wet crust (not really like a dough). Also the filling amount was way to much I only ended up using about half. What did I do wrong?!

      Hi Kayla, it is press in crust, so you combine everything and press it in and bake. It shouldn’t be wet at all. I think you need to use deeper and bigger baking tray.

        First time experimenting with something else than sugar/honey in the kitchen and I can’t believe the outcome, the cheesecake was absolutely delicious, everyone loved it.
        I’ll definitely make it again (after I’ve tried more of your recipes :)).
        I’m so happy I found your blog, it’s a life saver!
        Having the last piece now with my coffee. Thank you!

    My brother is allergic to almonds and walnuts
    Other nuts are fine
    What can I replace the almonds/ almond meal with and would I use the same measurements?
    Thank you
    Excited to try this!!

    It would be so nice if you could format recipes so they dont have a crapton of ads embedded in them. When I try to print a recipe, it wants to print on EIGHT pages of paper! Your recipes look good, but I wont visi5 your page or use your recipes if it takes 8 pages of paper to print what should be on ONE.

      You can also just put the exact page number you want printed and it will only print out that page not the unnecessary pages
