How To Make Keto Custard Tart

Keto Custard Pie / Tart Recipe with Low Carb Crust (2g Carbs) (4)
  1. Low-carb pie crust
  2. Preheat fan-forced oven to 175C/350F
  3. Mix together the almond meal, flaxseed meal, Swerve, and nutmeg into a mixing bowl. We use a Stand Mixer to do our mixing as it free’s us up around the kitchen. But you can mix by hand or with a hand mixer.
  4. Add the melted butter and egg and mix well (if you’reusing a stand mixer or hand mixer, select slow).
  5. Spoon the mixture into a 9.5-inch Pie Dish and press into an even layer across the base and up the sides.
  6. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes until the base is firm. If the base starts to rise from air bubbles, prick it with a fork and gently press down. Set aside to cool slightly.
  7. Custard tart filling
  8. Reduce oven to 160C/320F.
  9. Scrap the seeds from the vanilla bean and discard the pod.
  10. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla seeds, and Swerve.
  11. Add the whipping cream and mix well, before pouring through a fine sieve to remove any larger vanilla bean pieces.
  12. Pour mixture into the base and gently place in the oven.
  13. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the custard is just set and there is a slight jiggle when moved.
  14. Sprinkle with a pinch of nutmeg and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to set.
  15. Cut into 12 even pieces and enjoy.

  4. Can I use powdered Swerve instead of Natvia? Anything with stevia in it is oison to me (caused terrible migraines).

    Reply

    • Hi John-Mark,

      You can replace the Natvia with your preferred granulated sweetener – powdered sweetener is a lot sweeter than granulated and you will need to use less. I hope that helps!
