This keto-baked brie is easy to put together and uses just a handful of ingredients - some of which you may already have in your kitchen. Here is what I used to make this recipe.
Brie cheese is the main part of this baked brie recipe and is absolutely crucial. There is no other cheese quite like it or nearly as versatile. I usually find a great deal to buy a whole brie cheese at Costco.
If you have never tried brie before, you should definitely give this recipe a try!
Chopped pecans add just the right amount of crunch and nuttiness to this keto-baked brie recipe. They are full of nutty flavor and complement this mild cheese beautifully.
If you don't have pecans, you can swap them out for walnuts or almonds.
Brown Sugar Substitute
Using a brown sugar substitute gives this dish the depth of flavor that brown sugar brings without the unnecessary carbs. It pairs perfectly with salty and mild cheese and enhances its natural flavor.

Keto Maple Syrup
Using keto maple syrup strengthens the flavor of the brown sugar substitute, and the combination gives the syrup a depth of flavor similar to caramel. It goes well with the other ingredients in the recipe and sets this brie dish apart from the rest.
You can either make your own or buy one. My favorite is the one from ChocZero!

All of the steps are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post, but here is a brief overview of the simple process.
1. Bake the cheese
Preheat your oven to 350°F and place the brie cheese wheel on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until the cheese is very soft but not fully melted. Remove from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes to cool down.
3. Make the syrup
While your brie is cooling, add the brown sugar substitute and keto maple syrup to a pot on the stove. Bring the mixture to a boil and whisk continuously for 1 to 2 minutes.
Take it off the heat and set it aside.
4. Add any toppings
Once cooled down slightly, top the brie cheese wheel with chopped pecans.
Then, drizzle your syrup over the top and serve warm.
This baked brie recipe is perfectly balanced with sweet and salty. It would go great with some crackers, like these flaxseed crackers!
Whatever kinds of foods that you like to mix sweet and salty with would go great with this brie dish. It balances the flavors perfectly and creates a unique snack or appetizer. It could also be classified as dessert!
Common Recipe FAQs
Before we get to the recipe card, here are some questions people often ask about this keto-baked brie.
Do you take the rind off of brie before baking?
You do not want to remove the rind from the brie before baking because the rind is what is holding the cheese together. Brie becomes very soft when heated, so you need the slightly sturdier rind to hold the cheese in its shape.
If you like, you can even eat the rind. It is slightly tougher but still tastes like brie.
What goes well with baked brie?
If you are not sure what to serve alongside your tasty baked brie recipe, you have a lot of options.
Brie is a very mild cheese and goes well with a variety of foods. It is great with fresh fruit, or you can eat it with any kind of keto crackers.
You can also eat it with nuts or some tasty sugar-free jam.
Should this be served hot or cold?
Brie should always be served warm or at room temperature. When it is cold, it becomes rubbery and hard as well as bland. It is not very pleasant to eat cold.
When it is room temperature or warm, it is gooey on the inside and perfect for dipping things into.
How long will this last?
This baked brie will last for 2 to 4 days after it has been baked. Make sure to keep it in an airtight container for optimal freshness.
When you want to finish it, you can gently reheat it in the oven to bring its texture back to a nice liquid consistency. Or, you can try leaving it out at room temperature if your house is warm.
It is best to make this brie dish the day that you will be serving it, as this is when it is most fresh and tastes the best. I don't recommend making oven-baked brie ahead of time.
