I am sharing this post in partnership with Lakanto. As always, all opinions are my own. I appreciate you supporting both me and the brands that allow me to create quality content for you!
Keto Pecan Pie Cheesecake
I love pecan pie. I also love cheesecake. You’re probably in the same boat as me, and that puts us in the boat of reasonableness. Both are incredible desserts that are worthy all on their own!
But why not combine two delicious desserts that you and I both love, and make something even better?? That’s some Steve Jobs level innovation if you ask me.
We think you’ll love this keto pecan pie cheesecake for all the same reasons you love pecan pie and cheesecake and then some. Not only are the two great flavors that you love present in this dessert, they compliment one another perfectly. The crunch of the pecan pie excellently compliments the silky smooth texture of the delectable cheesecake.
Then there’s also the convenience of 2-in-1. Old Spice has been capitalizing on this for years. Who needs shampoo AND body wash when they can both be the same? Well, who needs pecan pie AND cheesecake when they can both be the same?
Save the second pie dish and make clean up that much easier. Save space on your dessert plate at the family get-together and maximize that plate-real-estate.
Anyway you want to slice it, this pecan pie cheesecake is a game changer and a crowdpleaser!
Life Is Sweeter Without Sugar!
This incredible keto pecan pie cheesecake is made with absolutely no sugar. Instead, it’s crammed full of sugar-free flavor thanks to Lakanto’s Monkfruit!
If you’ve been around here very long, you might have noticed that we are huge fans of Lakanto. We use their products in nearly every recipe on our site, and that’s simply because it makes good sense. Monkfruit tastes incredible while still being healthy and all natural.
In addition to being all natural, Monkfruit has some other pretty amazing qualities as well. Most importantly, it tastes great! In our opinion, it has no aftertaste like many other sweeteners. It is considered a modern-day super food because of its many health benefits, it has a 1:1 ratio to sugar making recipe conversion incredibly easy, it is zero glycemic, and has ZERO net carbs!
In other words, Lakanto’s Monkfruit is the best there is and if you aren’t using it, you should!
For this keto pecan pie cheesecake, we used Lakanto’s powdered Monkfruit, which is a powdered sugar substitute. But Lakanto also offers a classic granular Monkfruit which is similar to granulated sugar, a brown Monkfruit, and even an organic Monkfruit! There is a sweetener for every occasion!

Where Is Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener Found?
Many grocery stores and natural food stores carry granulated Monkfruit while some even carry their other products like the powdered Monkfruit used in this recipe. This is a great option if you’re in a pinch and you know a local store carries this great product.
However, we prefer to buy our Monkfruit directly from Lakanto because it’s often cheaper and the variety of products available is much greater on their website! In addition to their sweetener, Lakanto offers a number of other delicious products like muffin mixes, chocolates, and other keto friendly products that we always enjoy!
If you choose to order directly from Lakanto’s website, use our code “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout to save 20% off your entire order! This coupon is applicable to all of their great products, not just sweetener!
