Macadamia nut pie inspiration
As you know, I am often poking around Pinterest, looking for delicious conventional recipes that are ripe for a keto makeover. It’s a wonderful source of recipe inspiration.
I have several boards devoted to recipes I plan to makeover. The trouble is that I have so many saved, I couldn’t make them all in this lifetime. But I’m trying!
And when I stumbled across this Toasted Coconut White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pie from Can’t Stay Out of the Kitchen, I instantly envisioned how I could make a keto version.
With ChocZero white chocolate chips as my trusty sidekick, of course! They are quite the game changer for this keto baker. And they are kindly offering my readers a great discount!
How to make Keto Macadamia Nut Pie
Time needed: 55 minutes.
This delicious crustless pie is extremely easy to make. Let me walk you through it.
- Grind the coconut and macadamia nuts
They don’t need to be finely ground, but you do want to chop them up quite a bit. Use a food processor to grind them to the consistency of coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces.
- Use 2 different sweeteners
Swerve Brown gives the pie an unbelievably rich, caramel like flavor. But it can recrystallize quite a bit so using some BochaSweet or allulose can really help.
- Melt the butter with the sweeteners
Do this over very low heat, as low as your stove can go. You don’t want to heat it up much, you really just want to liquify the butter so that the sweeteners will dissolve properly.
- Stir in the cream and eggs
Take the pan off of the heat and stir in the cream and eggs. As long as you didn’t heat the butter up too much, adding eggs right into the pan should not be a problem.
- Stir in the remaining ingredients
I do recommend keeping a few of the white chocolate chips for after baking, but that’s purely aesthetic!
- Bake until mostly set
As with any gooey pie, you want to bake until it’s golden but there is still a little jiggle in the very center when you shake the pan. Don’t over-bake!
- Let cool before slicing
If you want proper slices, let it cool completely. If you just want to scoop some out onto a plate and top it with vanilla ice cream, then I recommend digging in when it’s still a little warm. Yum!
Can you make Keto Macadamia Pie in advance?
You can make this keto pie a day or two in advance, and store it in the fridge. It will continue to firm up as it cools, so if you want it to be more gooey, simply warm it gently in the oven or warm individual pieces in the microwave.
Store any leftovers in the fridge, tightly wrapped up so it doesn’t dry out.
Can you make this dairy free?
Cutting back on dairy? Well you can easily make this pie with coconut cream in place of the heavy cream. The white chocolate chips, however, contain dairy. You can sub them out for some dark chocolate.

- Remove and add the remaining white chocolate chips. Let cool completely in the pan. Serve warm or room temperature.
Delish and easy!! I will make it again.
Would this work with sugar free chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips?

So, I absolutely love BochaSweet sweetener.
I notice that you combine it with others sweeteners when baking & am wondering why.
I plan to make a keto buttermilk pie for Thanksgiving & would like to know the best way to sweeten it.
Because, just like any sweetener, it has drawbacks. Please read this: https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/best-keto-sweeteners/
Hi! This looks amazing and I want to try it. Do you think almond milk in place of the heavy cream would be ok? I’m trying to go dairy free. Thank you.
The best replacement for heavy cream is always coconut cream (the thick part off the top of a can of coconut milk). Almond milk is too thin.

Is the flaked coconut sweetened or unsweetened?
Always unsweetened. This is a keto food blog.
Could I use dessicated coconut instead of flaked and then just coarsely chop the macadamia nuts?
Honestly not sure it will have the right consistency. I guess you will need to experiment!
O.M.G. One of the most amazing desserts I’ve had, keto or not. It’s like coconut macaroons and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies had a love child. The chewiness of a macaroon and the caramelization of a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie makes this a tropical wonderland. Well done Carolyn!
Can you use liquid allulose? I’ve never seen any other kind?
Is there anything I could sub for the flaked coconut.
I wonder the same, I am allergic to coconut.
the coconut is pretty critical to the outcome. You could try sliced almonds but it may not work.
Looks delicious!! Mac pie was our “wedding cake” when we were married in Hawaii, I will be making this for our anniversary next week!
Lovely choice of wedding confection! 🙂

Dear Carolyn, IF WE WERE NEIGHBORS….I’D HUG THE C@#P OUTTA YA!!!
Macadamia nuts are one of our favorites. Truly doesn’t matter in what form. Just yummy.
Made this pie and my oh my!! So creamy, so luscious!! My family wanted more. ( Going to try in
a rectangular pan next time. Cut in squares. )
My question please: if I should use Allulose, ( just starting to experiment with it ) would the 1/4 cup
be sufficient.. or is that measurement strictly for the Bochasweet?
Again many thanks for this spectacular recipe.
Many thanks for ALL the wonderful recipes you create!
You can use the 1/4 cup allulose, should be fine!
