Pecan Pie Bites

Are you looking for a last minute Thanksgiving Day recipe for dessert?  Maybe one that’s somewhat healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free and delicious!  Don’t worry, I’ve got ya covered!

And no it’s not a pumpkin recipe :-)


It’s a spin on the classic pecan pie.  Which to be honest, I didn’t eat much of growing up.  We really didn’t have it at any family functions so it wasn’t something I grew up with.  I actually don’t think I ate it until I was a grown up! Man was I missing out!
