Ingredients:

For the Almond Flour Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated erythritol or sweetener of choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Berry Filling:

  • 2 cups mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated erythritol or sweetener of choice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (optional, for thickening)

Instructions:

For the Almond Flour Crust:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, granulated erythritol, and salt.
  2. Add the cold, cubed unsalted butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to blend the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and vanilla extract together. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir until a dough forms.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.

For the Berry Filling:

  1. In a bowl, combine the mixed berries, granulated erythritol, lemon juice, and xanthan gum (if using). Toss until the berries are evenly coated.

Assembling the Mini Pies:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Divide the chilled dough into 6 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball and press it into a greased mini pie tin, shaping it into a crust.
  3. Fill each crust with the berry mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the berry filling is bubbling.
  5. Allow the mini pies to cool before removing them from the tins.
  6. Serve your Best Keto Mixed Berry and Almond Mini Pies with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of keto-friendly vanilla ice cream.
