Pecan Pie Bites (No gluten, Low Sugar)

These are a fun version of pecan pie without all the calories. They only take 3 ingredients to make pecans, honey, and oil. pecans have a natural sweetness of their own so they don't need a lot of sweetener.  They will fill your mouth with a mouthful of yum. A great source of protein too. Read some of the benefits to pecans here. Pecans are loaded with nutritional benefits.


1 C chopped pecans
1 T coconut oil
1/2 T honey or vegan sweetener
1/2 C finely chopped pecans
1/4 C  chopped pecans

Directions     makes 8 bites

1. Put pecans in blender with oil and honey. Blend until smooth. I used the Blendtec twister jar that worked fast. It may require some pulse and stir in another blender until it reaches the right consistency.
2. Stir in the 1/2 C of pecans in a small bowl. Put in fridge until it starts to thicken about 30 to 60 minutes.
3. Take bowl out of fridge and roll into small balls. Roll into chopped nuts. Eat right away or put in fridge to harden. Store in airtight container.
