Keto Spaceman Pie

Keto spaceman pie – Another successful creativity

Keto spaceman pie is the name we picked based on the final results! As with any keto experiment, you are never sure what the final result will be. Well, the experiment with different stages of thermal processing of the pie filling ended up looking quite spacey and sci-fi to us. Of course, our favourite decoration technique which we called Jackson Pollock technique was applied here. The results? – Photos don’t lie 🙂 Tasty, creamy, nutritious and honestly – delicious! It’s so good that it can serve as a meal replacement!

When Keto dessert can serve as a meal replacement?

There are two main categories that have to be checked here:

If your answer is yes, then you are good to go! Have a piece or even two of Keto Spaceman pie for breakfast! It really makes no difference if you are eating an omelette with cheese on a pie of this kind. Of course, the amount of sweetener plays a role here. If you are preparing a Keto dessert that is loaded with sweetener, then you are risking being hungry sooner than you wanted.

In that case, you will have to have a breakfast that doesn’t contain too much sweetener or any at all in order to finish your meal with a Keto dessert. Our taste buds simply react very similarly to the taste of sweetness, regardless of the kind of sweetener used! Basically, if you overuse the sweetener, your insulin secretion will be higher! This is why it’s crucial to teach your buds that even a small amount of sweetener is more than enough!

A few days ago we published a recipe for probably the tastiest fat-bombs ever. The right combination of salty and sweet, fatty and creamy texture had to be applied in a pie form. So, here are the results! The pie is equally tasty, it only contains a bit more nutrients from eggs, mascarpone, sour cream and almond flour. Of course, you can use any Keto flour of your choice! I would recommend hazelnut flour but just adjust the amount due to carb content!

With the years of Keto baking experience, I came to the conclusion that you really don’t need that many flours! A tablespoon or three and you can make miracles. The secret lays in emulsification of eggs and butter prior to adding the flour. Of course, a good variety of psyllium powder is also important. This way you are sure that your keto cake, pie or bread will be 100% Keto, and not just low carb!

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt I used flower of sea salt
  • 2 tbsp psyllium powder organic
  • 2 tbsp almond flour you can use hazelnut flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour

Filling

  • 5 large eggs I used 20 quail eggs

  • 200 g (1 cup) mascarpone organic
  • 100 g (1/2 cup) peanut butter or any nut butter of your choice

  • 6 drops orange peel oil optional
  • 2 tbsp stevia or monk fruit blend sweetener or 2 micro-scoops 100% stevia extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt I used flower of sea salt

Instructions

  • Beat the eggs with melted butter for at least 5 minutes. the mixture needs to emulsify. Add sweetener, salt, lemon zest and psyllium. The mixture will slowly thicken. Now add almond flour and coconut flour and mix with your hands. Leave the mixture in the freezer for 5 minutes.
  • Grease an 11-inch pie pan with some coconut oil and place the crust dough in the middle. Gently press it with your hands to cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Stub the dough with a fork as many times as you can. 
  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC (390ºF) and bake the crust for 12 minutes.
  • Beat the eggs until you get a foamy texture. Add sour cream, mascarpone, peanut butter, vanilla, orange peel oil and sweetener. In the end, add salt and beat some more. 
  • Remove a small amount of this mixture into a saucepan. Keep it aside for decoration. Now add cacao powder to the bigger amount of the filling and mix well. 
  • Remove the half baked crust from the oven and fill it with the dark filling. Using a spoon, add the light mixture on top in quick circular movements. Keep just 1-2 tablespoons of the light mixture for later.
  • Return the pie into the oven and bake it for another 15-20 minutes. Now add the remaining light mixture and leave it for 5 minutes in the oven which you turned off. 
  • Let the pie cool down a bit before serving. It's equally tasty cold or warm.
