No one will ever guess that this delicious Pecan Pie is clean eating, paleo friendly, gluten free and refined sugar free! Made with an almond flour crust, heart healthy coconut oil, and sweetened with pure maple syrup, this healthier dessert looks and tastes just as good as the original!
Between organizing the Loco Coco 5k, putting together the new Feel Great in 8 Affiliate Program, and some exciting things I’m working on for January, the blog has completely gotten neglected! So many exciting things going on and so little time! I keep wishing for just 2 or 3 more hours in each day, but so far it hasn’t happened.
I even missed sharing a few of my favorite holiday recipes before Thanksgiving! Don’t worry though, they are worth the wait and will be perfect to add to your Christmas dinner menu. I promise I’ll get them all posted for you in the next few weeks.
This Pecan Pie is one of my new favorite holiday desserts and I know it will be a favorite in your house as well! It was a big hit with my entire family at Thanksgiving dinner and no one even guessed that I had cut out all the processes junk! Yay for sneaky healthy eating. 😉
The almond flour crust is from Elana’s Pantry and it is ridiculously easy. I just threw all of the ingredients into my Blendtec and it came together beautifully! The only thing I would do differently is to use a regular, not deep, pie dish. The deep sides meant I had to stretch the crust a little thin and you can see in the photo that the rim didn’t quite hold up coming out of the dish. Don’t worry though, it still tasted amazing!
Anyway, I’ll stop blabbering and get to the recipe. I hope you love it as much as we did!
