Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding Pie

This Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding Pie is probably one of the best keto desserts I've made in a while!

The filling is super creamy, rich and delicious! 

This low carb chocolate hazelnut pudding pie recipe uses a unique blend of ground hazelnut flour and cocoa powder along with some butter and powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener for the crust.

I don't normally bake with hazelnut flour because it's tougher to find in bulk like almond flour and is usually a little more pricey but for the odd occasion it's really worth it!

Hazelnut flour gives the crust such a nice, rich flavour that you really can't obtain from almond flour. It matches the chocolate pudding filling really well!

In terms of the filling, I used two layers. The first layer is actually this keto-friendly Chocolate Pudding Mix available by Simply Delish.

This keto pudding mix is delicious!! I prepared it with heavy whipping cream and slightly less liquid called for on the box to make it extra thick to stand up to being sliced as a pie. It turned out fantastic.

This pudding mix has a light flavour, I wouldn't say it's a super rich chocolate but it's a perfect amount of chocolate to get that flavour into the whipped cream. It reminds me of chocolate mousse. 

I'm also shocked at how simple the ingredients are for this mix. It's only sweetened with stevia, which is great but also shocking because normally I don't like stevia sweetened desserts. But with this mix there's no weird aftertaste!

As for the second layer of this keto pudding pie, I made just a standard bowl of sugar free low carb whipped cream and spread that over the top of the first pudding layer. This just gave the pie a really beautiful final look and filled up the rest of the crust. 

Finally, I topped the pie with shaved dark chocolate and these amazing dark cocoa dusted hazelnuts. The hazelnuts aren't the lowest of carb treats but when you only eat one per serving they aren't bad at all and just add that beautiful final touch to the pie! 

But you could totally coat your own hazelnuts in chocolate or just sprinkle chopped hazelnuts on top of your pie instead! Either would be delicious. 

When it came to slicing the pudding pie, I was worried it might fall apart slightly..but boy was I wrong! This pie came out PERFECT. I'm talking PERFECT, PERFECT. Not a single bit of crust was left stuck to the pie pan and each slice looked flawless. 

I was pretty impressed with myself to say the least. 

This Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding Pie is definitely going to be a regular dessert in our family. It's seriously SO GOOD.

Tips For Making Low Carb Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding Pie

  • When making your crust, if you find it a little dry, just add another little bit of water (only when really needed, if you can squish it together and make a solid piece in your hand you probably don't need more water).
  • If you do not have hazelnut flour and don't wish to buy it (although I recommend you do because it really adds to the pie! you can also use almond flour or pecan flour if you have it, just substitute it 1:1 with the hazelnut flour)
  • When beating the pudding mix and whipping cream, watch it closely as it will only take about a minute for it to really start to thicken. You don't want to beat it past the point when it no longer is very smooth. 
  • Same thing when beating the whipped cream, whipping this will take longer but be sure not to over-beat. You want soft peaks to be formed (you could even go just past that but once you can form stiff peaks you do not want to beat it anymore).
  • For the toppings, you can get creative and use chopped hazelnuts, dip your own dark chocolate hazelnuts, use a dark chocolate hazelnut chocolate bar and break it up on top of the pie..totally up to you!

How To Store Keto Chocolate Pudding Pie

  • Store this Keto Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding Pie in the fridge, covered.
  • I like to put a paper or plastic plate of the same size as the pie pan on top as a lid.
  • You can also just saran wrap it but be aware that some of the topping may stick to the saran. What you could do is just put a few toothpicks in the top of the pie to keep the saran wrap elevated.
