Vegan Pecan Pie

My new favorite thing is to find and experiment with vegan recipes. I’m not vegan, or even vegetarian, and I’m more a fan of simplicity but luckily there are a ton of vegan recipes that are healthy, simple, and delicious.

I recently made a vegan pecan pie that I found on the S.W. Basics blog. It consists mostly of walnuts, pecans, and dates with a little bit of shredded coconut, salt, cinnamon, and coconut oil in the mix. I was so excited when I found it I didn’t even realize it was a no-bake recipe!

It took me maybe twenty minutes to make and was super simple. I used a Nutribullet instead of a food processor and added a few extra pulses when the dates got stuck. Once you’ve got the crust and filling done, just pop it in the fridge for a few hours and it’s ready to go. Because I’m not vegan I ate it with Reddi Whip and it’s probably my favorite pecan pie that I’ve tried.

It was so good I forgot to take a picture before we started eating it.
