Perfect Paleo Pecan Pie | Leverage Ambition

Pecan pie reminds me of being a little girl at my Aunt Sue’s house. My next door neighbors lived across the street from us. We had 5 girls and one boy in our family and they had 3 boys and one girl in theirs. Our parents were best friends for many years when we finally moved out into a bigger house in 1997. We always had fun playing video games with the next door neighbors, but I hated losing to the boys!

The best part about living next door was heading over to Aunt Sue’s house for some creamy, sugary pecan pie. The smell of the pecan pie was so good, that it floated across the street to our house letting us know to get over there for a slice of warm pecan pie.

I always loved pecans and pies, but together is a simple sweet symphony of sugary goodness. I actually love pecans raw. Whether the pecans are salted or sugary sweet, I’m in it to win it. Pecans are always a great snack and filled with a good protein boost that helped me be peppy and playful as I ran about playing SPUD and RED LIGHT, GREEN LIGHT in the neighborhood.

The good food news is that this specific pecan pie recipe is paleo, which means I can eat the whole thing alone without feeling guilty.
