I have had several requests for a healthier Pecan Pie – one that didn’t call for corn syrup. My family was happy for me to try this experiment. I’m excited to share that I was easily able to adapt a recipe to use honey in exchange for corn syrup. Simple as that! (If only all of the Real Food Makeovers were this easy…)
Hey, guess what else? Not only was this recipe simple to figure out – the filling for this pie only has five ingredients. It’s super quick to put together!
Honey Pecan Pie
Honey Pecan Pie ~ Real Food Makeover
- 1 cup honey
- 3 eggs
- ⅓ cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1¼ cups crushed pecans
- Whisk first four ingredients together until eggs are beaten and everything is well mixed.
- Add pecans and stir.
- Pour mixture into an unbaked Whole Wheat Pie Crust.
- Bake in a 350° oven for about 45 minutes or until the middle of the pie no longer jiggles.
Here’s my Whole Wheat Pie Crust recipe.
(My use of the word jiggles proves how professional I am in my use of cooking terms.)
