I adore frangipane, or almond cream. It’s so lush and tasty and any kind of frangipane tart on the menu would always be one of my top choices. It is such an easy dish to convert to low-carb & keto, with only a couple of minor changes.

I have teamed my frangipane with some lemon zest and fresh blueberries but you could use any keto-friendly fruit that you prefer. I don’t sweeten my crust but if you want to, you could add a tablespoon or two of granulated low-carb sweetener. Enjoy!

How to Make Dairy-Free Keto Frangipane

Butter is the best option for flavour but if you can't eat dairy, you could try ghee. Ghee is made from butter but is usually well tolerated as milk solids are removed. Other than ghee, you can try virgin coconut oil or palm shortening.

Palm shortening is made from palm oil. Beware that the standard practice for harvesting palm trees to produce palm oil destroys tropical forests and habitats of endangered species! Always opt for sustainably sourced palm oil and palm shortening such as Tropical Traditions.

  1. Preheat oven to 180° C/ 355° F (fan assisted), or 200° C/ 400° F (conventional). Start by preparing the crust. Melt the butter. Low-Carb Blueberry Frangipane Tart
  2. Mix all of the crust ingredients together in a mixing bowl until well combined.
  3. Press into a greased 22 cm/ 8.7 " tart pan. I use a measuring cup around the edges to get a good defined angle in the base of the crust. Bake for 10 minutes.

I tried this recipe but my tart shell cracked pretty badly and didn’t really hold together, any advice how to make it better next time? Not sure in which part of the recipe I made a mistake.

Hi Nima, I'm sorry to hear that! Adding a bit (1/2-1 tsp) of xanthan gum would help. More crust recipes that all hold well together:

I made this blueberry frangipani tart for the first time as a dessert for friends after a spinach/bacon pie and salad lunch. It was a hit. One tart really goes a long way as it is so rich with all the butter, eggs and almonds that I cut mine into 12 slices. It is also not overwhelmingly sweet. Will definitely be making this again.

Thank you Nici, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Thanks so much for posting this! I’ve been wanting to figure out a low-carb frangipane for a while, but now I don’t have to. Can’t wait to try this!

Thank you Christine, I hope you like it!
