Gluten Free & Keto Baked Brie ๐Ÿง€

Ridiculously creamy, and easy (with our keto pie crust) ๐Ÿ’จ

Many of you already know and love our gluten free & keto cream cheese pie crust. Suuuper flakey and a breeze to make, we’ve already used it anywhere from leftover beef chili empanadas to sweet hand pies. But we’re most definitely not stopping there, as it’s already become an integral part of our keto cooking. So up next is our favorite entree we’ve cooked up as of late: aย keto baked brie.

Picture a ridiculously creamyย brie, paired with crunchy pecans and aromatic thyme, all wrapped up with our super flakey and tasty keto pie crust.

And at 2-3g net carbs per serving, it’s what we call ideal.

The Cheeseย ๐Ÿง€

We made this keto baked brie with a small 5-inch brie wheel, and used roughly two thirds of 1 batch of our keto pie crust. So that actually makes it come out at roughly 1.5-2g net carbs per serving.

This smaller brie wheel serves 3 to 4 people nicely. But upgrading to a 7-inch wheel is also highly suggested.

Just note that, to err on the safe side, we calculated nutrition informationย using an entire batch of our keto pie crust and a large 7-inch wheel of brie. Keeping in mind that you may want to use the leftover scraps of the dough to make some crackers to serve along.

Oh, and make sure to allow the baked brie to cool for 10 to 15 minutes after baking. Otherwise burning brie will ooze out, leaving you with an empty shell.

The Ironyย ๐Ÿ‡

Grapes were always the classic decoration for baked bries at home. And tbh, we could’t resist the temptation to decorate it that same way yet again. Even if we were serving it up sans grapes, and opting for keto-friendly strawberries.

Though note that strawberries are in no way playing second fiddle to grapes. They are absolutely delicious paired with brie, and we highly suggest you don’t do without.ย ๐Ÿ“

Make Aheadย โฐ

We’re fairly keen on meal prepping ahead of time, particularly if entertaining. And this keto baked brie is ideal when having guests over.

Make it all a day ahead, and simply brush with egg wash and pop it in the oven for 30 minutes. Just be sure to keep an eye out for excessive browning after minute 15-17, as coconut flour can brown too quickly (varying from oven to oven). If needed, place aluminum foil to slow excessive the browning.

The Flours

We like a mixture of super fine almond flour and coconut flour best. Add a touch of xanthan gum, and weโ€™re golden.

In terms of brands, for the almond either Anthonyโ€™sย or WellBees work great. Both are super fine grinds. And for the coconut, we always favor Anthonyโ€™s.

Just One Rule โ˜๐Ÿฟ

Make sure the brie isย completely chilled before wrapping.

And remember that, like with any pastry dough, you need to work quickly and over a cool surface. Though do note that if the dough becomes too hard to manage, you can always pop it back in the fridge for 15 minutes before carrying on!

One last thing. Like with any pastry dough, make sure not to over-process the dough. The mixture ought to resemble coarse breadcrumbs rather than cookie dough.

The Deets ๐Ÿ”

When rolling out you may want to use parchment or wax paper. Given the lack of gluten, the crust is more fragile and it will break easily if not handled with care. So we suggest rolling it out between two sheets of parchment paper. Easy peasy.

And talking aboutย lack of gluten, this is the reason why the dough will crack slightly when baked. Weโ€™ve noticed that the cracking can be lessened by allowing the dough to rest overnight (rather than for an hour), though note that taste and texture will be the same. We also noted that by increasing the xanthan gum you can get a silky smooth crust, but at the cost of losing quite a bit of flakiness. So we most definitely sacrificed some aesthetics for the sake of taste and texture.ย ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฟ

Ingredients

For the pie crust

For the brie filling

  • 1 7-inch wheel brie cheese
  • 1/3 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Serving suggestion

  • fresh strawberries

Instructions

  1. Make a batch of our gluten free & keto cream cheese pie crust. 

  2. Preheat oven to 350ยฐF/180ยฐC. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  3. Roll out pastry dough in between two sheets of parchment paper, lightly dusting with coconut flour as needed. Trim depending on the size of your brie. We suggest making the trimmings into crackers!

  4. Scatter pecans, garlic powder and thyme in the center of the pie crust. Place brie wheel on top. 

  5. Brush edges with egg wash and fold around the wheel, trimming excess dough as needed. If any breakage occurs, just patch it up by pressing the dough together, or adding a trimming if need be. But if the dough becomes unmanageable (i.e. it warms up too much), just pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes.

  6. Place wrapped brie wheel onto prepared baking tray and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes (or overnight) prior to baking. Brush with egg wash and bake for 27-30 minutes, until golden all over. Be sure to keep an eye out for excessive browning after minute 15-17, as coconut flour can brown too quickly (varying from oven to oven). If needed, place aluminum foil to slow excessive the browning.

  7. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving, otherwise the melted brie will just ooze right out!

Recipe Notes

When rolling out the dough you may want to use parchment or wax paper. Given the lack of gluten, the crust is more fragile and it will break easily if not handled with care. So we suggest rolling it out between two sheets of parchment paper (see video). Easy peasy.

Oh, and (as with regular pie crust/pastry dough) try to work quickly or put your dough back in the fridge for 15 minutes if it begins to warm up too much.ย 

Please note that nutrition facts were calculated using the entire pastry crust (2g net carbs/serving). But you are likely to have leftover scraps, particularly if baking a 5-inch wheel rather than a 7-inch one. So net carbs per serving are more between 1 to 2g per serving (but we rather err on the side of caution).

    I’d made your pie crust before as well, so I didn’t hesitate to make this for a fall harvest event this weekend. What I didn’t foresee, was that EVERYONE was going to ask for the recipe!! Thank you!
