SIBO Pecan Pie Recipe 786x1048



  • 2 cups (7.6 oz) almond flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup (2.8 oz) solid coconut oil (use butter if coconut not tolerated)
  • 1 tbs maple syrup (or a few drops of liquid stevia)
  • 1 egg


  • 1 cup (8 oz) maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup (2.8 oz) coconut oil (use butter if coconut not tolerated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs almond flour (or use another nut flour you can tolerate)
  • 1 tbs almond milk (or use another milk you can tolerate)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups (8.5 oz) pecans



  • Pre-heat the oven to 325F.
  • Grease a fully enclosed pie dish with butter or coconut oil.
  • Make the pie crust. Place all of the crust ingredients in a food processor and blitz until it forms into a ball. Place into the pie dish and flatten out evenly over the base and sides. Prick the base with a fork in several locations.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, turning the pie dish around halfway through cooking to ensure even distribution of cooking and heat.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly.


  • Next, make the filling. Add all filling ingredients into a food processor. If you would like to decorate the top of your pie with pecan halves, reserve ¾ cup of pecans.
  • Blitz until well combined. Pour into pie crust and smooth out. If decorating with pecan halves, place on the top, pressing down so they sit within the mixture.
  • Place in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Check during the cooking that the pie top isn’t burning, as nuts can burn very quickly.
  • Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. This pie holds its shape better if refrigerated, so place in the fridge for several hours or ideally overnight.

To Serve

  • Cut into slices and serve cold. Delicious with a dollop of whipped coconut cream.


  • If you can't tolerate coconut oil, please feel free to substitute with butter or another fat you can tolerate.
  • If you can't tolerate maple syrup, please substitute with honey or another liquid sweetener you can tolerate. If only using liquid stevia, you will need to increase the liquid volume by adding some extra nut milk or egg.

    1. Hi Diana
      If you take a look at the top of the recipe, it lists it as a Low Fodmap recipe. If you wanted to make it suitable for the SIBO Bi Phasic Diet, you can substitute honey for the maple syrup.
      I personally find many of my SIBO Coaching Clients can tolerate honey and maple syrup.
      Happy baking!

  1. The pecan pie was delicious. 5 stars! Some advice is that when you let it cool if you want a more stiff pie leave it in the fridge for more time. But other than that delicious!

    1. Hi Alex
      I haven’t tried it without eggs. The eggs create the custard-like filling so I don’t think a flax egg (or other egg-replacer) would work in this recipe sadly.
