Pecan Pie

Y’all I made PEKAN PIE (insert southern accent here). I won’t be posting to the instagram because honestly, I suck at taking pictures of my food and I have no patience. BUT I promise y’all (channeling my inner southern auntie) that this pecan pie is amazing and delicious and of course “slightly” healthier because it has dates in it 🙂 Hope y’all enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!


  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates
  • 2 tbspns ground flax seed
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tspn vanilla extract
  • 2 tbspns butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1-1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 eggless pie crust (prepare according to instructions)


  1. In a mixer blend maple syrup, dates, flax seed, pecans, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Set the mixture aside.
  2. In a sauce pan on low heat, melt butter.
  3. After the butter has melted, add the brown sugar and white sugar.
  4. Let the sugar melt into the butter on low heat. Mixture should be homogenous.
  5. Combine the maple syrup mixture with the butter mixture.
  6. Put pecans into the pie crust.
  7. Pour in the liquid mixture.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until filling has set. Let cool for an hour and enjoy!!
