Clean Eating Pecan Pie
(Makes 16 servings – One 9 inch pie)

Please note that increasing or decreasing the honey will give you more or less filling. Using 3/4 cups honey is just right for filling a 9 inch pie.

Ingredients
Clean eating pie crust recipe (Makes 2 pie crusts)
1/2 cup honey for a less sweet pie OR
3/4 cups honey for a medium sweet pie OR
1 cup honey for a sickeningly sweet pie
3 egg whites, whipped with a fork
2 tbsp. safflower or other light flavored oil
1 cup ground raw pecans (grind after measuring)
1 cup raw pecan pieces
4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 tbsp. whole wheat pastry flour

NOTES ON THE HONEY: When I made my pie, I only used 1/2 cup honey and I have to say that it was plenty sweet. But I know that by other people’s standards, it would be hardly sweet at all. I enjoy the natural sweetness from the nuts. So I didn’t feel the pie needed much. So just be aware that if you go up to 1 cup of honey, you are really, honestly going to get a pie that is sickeningly sweet by my standards (which some people like).

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 1 – Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2 – Pour batter into raw pie crust and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and continue to bake for 20-25 minutes. The pie should raise in the oven and have small cracks in the top when it’s done.

Step 3 – Remove from over and allow to cool overnight.

Eat and Enjoy!
