Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 30 mins
Total time 40 mins


A real food pecan pie recipe with maple syrup, honey, vanilla, eggs and
butter for a healthier take on this classic.

Author: Wellness Mama
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6+


Ingredients
• CRUST:
• 2 cups almond flour
• 1 teaspoon Gelatin Powder (I use this one)
• 1 tablespoons Coconut Flour (optional)
• ½ cup butter or coconut oil (cold/solid at room temp)
• 2 teaspoons coconut sugar ( I used this one)
• 1 egg

• FILLING:
• 1 cup maple syrup (or ½ cup each maple syrup and honey)
• 3 eggs
• 3 tablespoons of butter or coconut oil
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• ½ cup coconut sugar (I used this brand)
• 1.5 cups of pecans

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a food processor, pulse the almond flour, gelatin and coconut flour
until evenly mixed.
3. Add the butter or coconut oil (must be cold), the coconut sugar and
the egg yolk and pulse until it forms a ball.
4. Press in to the bottom of a pie pan (or 8x8 dish) and set aside.
5. In a small saucepan, bring the maple syrup to a simmer and simmer for
about 5 minutes or until it reaches 225 degrees (or starts to bubble up). I
got this tip from this post.
6. Pour in to a bowl and add the butter/coconut oil, vanilla and coconut
sugar.
7. Use an immersion blender to combine.
8. Add eggs and blend until smooth.
9. Pour over pie crust and top with pecans (or just dump in evenly if you
don't care about the top having all the pecans facing the same way).
10. Bake for 30 minutes or until the center is mostly set. Do not overbake!
