Now for the Easy Pecan Pie Bites recipe. These will just take you a few minutes to whip up. What a great addition to your holiday table!
Let us all take a moment to notice something about these Pecan Pie Bites that doesn’t even matter a little bit but that absolutely really does matter:
These Pecan Pie Bites are adorable and cute.
Cute food matters. Food tastes better when it’s cute. I’ve tried to convince my sons of this truth. I see cute food and think, oh look how cute this food is. They see cute food and they are like, why are these Pecan Pie Bites so tiny? These teenage sons of mine proceed to eat the treats in large quantity which almost, but not quite, negates the cuteness.
I suppose I should also let you know that these Pecan Pie Bites are very easy to make. They are made with only five ingredients, which are of course, all real food ingredients. They are naturally gluten and dairy free, which is a lovely bonus if that is a need for you. You can put these together in just a few minutes – my favorite kind of recipe. And above all, they are cute. Cute, cute, cute.
They are also magic, so prepare to be amazed. See, you put a pecan at the bottom of each muffin liner. Then you pour in the pie mixture. The pecan rises and bakes at the top, making magical cuteness.
Easy Pecan Pie Bites
- ½ cup honey
- 3 eggs
- ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 24 pecans (about ½ cup)
- Fill 24 mini muffin tins with paper liners.
- Place a pecan at the bottom of each liner.
- Whisk together honey, eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla.
- Scoop mixture into the prepared muffin tin, filling about ¾ full.
- Bake in a 350° oven for 15-25 minutes or until evenly browned.
See? I told you they were easy. These will be wonderful to have on your holiday table so that when there are pumpkin pies and apple pies and cheesecakes and all the other desserts – people can take one (or five) of these cute little Pecan Pie Bites which have portion control already built in. How very practical of them.
Enjoy, and I’ll see you over at the Thanksgiving Recipe Swap!
