Pecan Pie Recipe – No Butter or Corn Syrup

no corn syrup

My hubby and I both LOVE pecan pie at Thanksgiving and well, throughout the year, given the opportunity.  I decided to try and see if my hubby would like a pie with no butter or corn syrup.  I had the first piece and it was just as sweet, just as satisfying, but the ooey gooey stickiness of a traditional pecan pie wasn’t there.  Which, is completely fine with me, but I wondered what the hubby thought.  At first he thought it was a chocolate pecan pie, but no, the darkness just came from the dark brown sugar I used.  He tried it, and he liked it!  It is NOT your traditional pecan pie, but it is a generally healthier version that contains no corn syrup, which is a great thing!  It still has tons of sugar, so it’s not “healthy,” but it is a “healthier” version.  I’m sure you could use a sugar substitute, like agave nectar or anything, really.  Here’s the recipe if you’d like to try it:

Yum! Pecan pie is a favorite of mine, and I love that you didn't use corn syrup like most recipes for it call for. One of my fav ways to eat it is with some chocolate chips sprinkled on top or cooked in it :)

What time is dessert?  This looks great, I love that there isn't any corn syrup in it. I wonder how it would be with honey, I may try it that way.

Honey would be good and it would be stickier that way, good idea!
