Grain Free Pecan Pie (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Grain Free Pecan Pie.  You guys!  I made you a grain free pecan pie!  If I had to pick a favorite dessert, pie would be high up on the list.

This time of year we think of apple pie, pecan pie and pumpkin pie.  So I decided to come up with a healthier version of pecan pie.  Grain free and vegan pecan pie to be exact.


Grain Free Pecan Pie ~ My Whole Food Life


This pie is healthier because it is only sweetened with dates.  If you like a super sweet and gooey pecan pie, you can add a bit of maple syrup to this.

I thought it was plenty sweet the way it was.  It’s also super easy to make!  Just like my pumpkin pie, I used the crust recipe from Elena’s Pantry. I just love the simplicity of it.  My pecan pie is slightly different than the classic recipe, but it’s very good!
