Mixed Nut Caramel Pie without Sugar and Gluten

The below recipe for a mixed nut caramel pie has been translated from one of the leading Danish low carb food blogs: ravfood.com – where Kathe Rav spoils her readers with delicious and healthy recipes! This particular recipe was posted on April 1st, 2016. The below narrative is Kathe’s:

This post is definitely not an April Fools. On the contrary, I feel that this mixed nut caramel pie is one of my best ever low carb baked goods. The pie in the photos is completely sugar and gluten free – and the taste is incredible.

The pie has a crunchy crust, lots of healthy nuts and a delicious sweet taste of caramel.

You could choose to cover the crust with dark chocolate which would complement the sweet pie. I used Fat-reduced Almond Flour for the pie. It should be possible to use regular almond flour – I just haven’t tried it.

The pie needs to be served completely cooled so consider baking the day prior to serving.

16 servings

Use a 13 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ pie pan, or alternatively a 8″ x 8″ pan.

1.25 cups (=140 g) fat-reduced almond flour

1/4 t salt

100 g butter, cold and cut into small chunks (50 g, if using regular almond flour)

75 g Fiber Syrup Gold

  2. Grease your pan thoroughly
  3. Mix almond flour, Sukrin Icing and salt in a food porcessor

  5. Once the ingredients have been mixed, kneed the dough on the table. It might seem somewhat dry and crumbly

  8. Filling: Put butter, Sukrin Gold and Fiber Syrup in a pot

  13. Pour the caramel filling and bake the pie for an additional 12-15 minutes
  14. Once the filling has gotten darker and thick and bubbly, the pie is done
