If you're looking for a classic dessert for Thanksgiving, then a pecan pie is the obvious choice. However, I've given the traditional dish a twist by making it into brownies!

The base is the same as my Low Carb Mint Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies, but then I've made a pecan pie topping to layer on top of the brownie. The result is a fantastic mixture of chocolatey soft brownie and a buttery, nutty topping.

 

How to Make Low Carb Pecan Pie Brownies

To make the brownie layer, cream some low carb sweetener (I used Lakanto – get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!) and butter together in a stand mixer. Add almond flour, eggs, unsweetened cocoa powder, and baking powder, and beat until smooth. Low Carb Pecan Pie Brownies - a tasty treat for Thanksgiving!

Spoon the batter into an 8×8″ square baking pan lined with baking parchment.

Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the pecan pie layer by combining low carb brown sweetener (I've just discovered Brown Swerve – you can buy it from Netrition or Whole Foods!!!), butter, vanilla extract and a beaten egg in a saucepan.

Heat on a low-medium heat until the butter has melted, the sweetener has dissolved, and a thick sauce has formed. Add in the pecans and stir well. (Actually mine is a mixture of half walnuts and half pecans, but the carb count is the same and the taste very similar!)

Pour the mixture on top of the cooked brownie layer.

Return it to the oven for 10-12 minutes or until set.  Leave to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer it to a wire cooling rack. Cut into 9 squares.

These look great... but I’m struggling to get brown sweetener in the UK. Will white work?

Yes a granular white sweetener will be fine, it just won't have quite the same flavor.
