Clean Eating Pecan Pie {gluten, dairy, & refined sugar free!}
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil {I use Nutiva}
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup unrefined coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1¼ cup pecan halves
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and adjust rack to lower-middle position.
  2. Put flour and salt in a food processor or Blendtec blender. Add coconut oil and egg and pulse until mixture forms a ball. Press dough into 9-inch pie dish. Chill in refrigerator while making the filling.
  3. Heat maple syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until syrup reaches 225 degrees, mine took almost exactly 10 minutes. While syrup is simmering, place coconut sugar and butter or ghee in a medium mixing bowl. As soon as the syrup reaches 225 degrees, immediately pour it over the sugar and butter. Let mix sit for 1 minute and then whisk together. Add eggs, vanilla, and sea salt and whisk (the mixture might look a little grainy).
  4. Pour filling mixture into the prepared pie crust and top with pecans. Cover crust with a pie shield or foil. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 15 minutes. The filling will be slightly less set in the center than the edges and it might puff up in the middle a little, but will set as it cools.
  5. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
