Paleo Pecan Pie

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 free range eggs
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 cup whole pecans
  • 12 pitted dates

  • preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • lightly grease pie pan
  • mix all ingredients together with a spoon (make sure all almond flour has been moistened)
  • dump dough into the middle of the pan and spread out and onto the edges of the pie pan - it is not going to be perfect and will slide down the sides a little- it's okay!
  • bake for 10 minutes
  • while the crust is baking...
  • in a large bowl whisk together eggs, honey, and vanilla - set aside
  • in a food processor- chop dates (about 1 minute)
  • add dates to the mixture
  • stir in cinnamon, coconut flour, and chopped pecans- stir well
  • pour filling into pie crust 
  • add remaining whole pecans to the top of the pie
  • bake for 35 minutes 
  • let cool and enjoy!


  1. hey! thanks for all the recipes. fellow thyroid problem-haver over here, and sort of kind of paleo. mostly. i eat quinoa and some hummus on occasion mostly because i can't eat red meat at all, but i digress. i love the blog, please keep it up!

  2. thank you so much! if you have anything specific you are looking for let me know and I'll do my best to make it happen :)

  3. Could I leave out the dates and use more honey instead? Or possibly (gasp!) sugar? (This is for holiday not-completely-paleo consumption.)
