Butter Pecan Ice Cream Bars

Butter Pecan Ice Cream Bars

My name is Maria and I have an ice cream addiction… but it is keto ice cream!

When I was a little girl we always had a huge garden. When my little brother and I would help Grandpa Vince pick weeds from the garden for 15 minutes we could go have ice cream at Tasty Treat in town.

My Grandpa Vince’s favorite ice cream was butter pecan so I thought I would make this delicious bar in honor of him!

I love ice cream bars because you do not need an ice cream maker! Keto Ice Cream bars are something I ALWAYS have in my freezer!

    Looks yummy, will these really make 12 popsicles? I guess they might be really small ones? Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Yes, they would be smaller ones. You can make 6 and just double the nutritional info. 🙂

  • Brenda Stenftenagel says:

    Love all your recipes. Have 5 of your books. I also am healing from Lyme and believe the keto diet has been a great help. Major treatment in Florida. Wish your husband love and healing. Your book Keto was very helpful in helping me understand the science. You are awesome. Dr. Brenda

  • Oh yum! Anything with browned butter in it is DELICIOUS.

  • Amy says:

    Maria-
    These sound delicious!
    Any substitute for “brown butter” if dairy free?
    Thanks!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      You can use coconut oil but would need to skip the “browning” as it won’t brown like butter. 🙂

  • Mavis Wood says:

    Nice picture of Vince. These sound like something good that I will have to try.

  • Mary says:

    Is this a transition recipe because don’t fake sweeteners change your gut flora?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      First, these aren’t fake sweeteners. The sweeteners I use are as natural as honey or maple syrup. Second, I don’t think natural sugar will be an issue with gut flora.

  • Deanna Kemper says:

    How much sweetener goes In your coconut curry chicken and pancakes? The pancake directions references sweetener, but none listed in the ingredients.

  • Sue says:

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I had the ingredients and decided even though it looks like winter here today I’d make them. So glad that I did. They are wonderful.

  • Cara says:

    Hi Maria, can I turn this into icecream, using an ice cream maker?

  • Marilyn says:

    Do you think toasting the pecans before adding them in will improve flavor? 2nd question: So if you blend in the nuts, do you just pulse them in after everything else is mixed well, or do you think it’s best to make the nuts disappear in the mixture?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      It is worth a try! I just mix until combined. I like the chunks. But you can blend more if you like. 🙂

  • Laura says:

    Maria, these are amazing! I loved them so much, I tweaked them to make mint chocolate chip ice cream bars with Lily’s Brand chocolate chips. So delicious. These just might bring my kids closer to being okay with sugar free desserts, and well, if not, more for me. I love your books! Thank you for your work.

  • Erica says:

    Oh, I want to try this! I bought an ice cream maker and want to make ice cream. Think I’ll double the recipe. Also I made my own ghee and the last batch I left almost too long on the stove. It’s already brown butter and smells soooo good! Think this would work instead of browning fresh butter?

    Thanks!

  • Heather Barnica says:

    Oh. My. GOODNESS!! These, are delicious! A huge hit for my husband and myself! I made a double recipe. Thanks for making Keto so easy to stick with! I love all of your recipe books and look forward to your Keto Instant Pot recipe book coming in 12/2018!!! Thank YOU!!

  • Teresa says:
