These super easy, bite-size Pecan Pie Truffles are a simple but perfect replacement for slice of traditional pecan pie!
It only takes 3 clean ingredients and about 5 minutes to make and they are a pretty darn close replica of the taste of traditional pecan pie.
Traditional pecan pie not only has a white flour + butter + shortening crust, but is made with other unhealthy ingredients with empty calories.
Here's the ingredient list for a typical homemade version and another for a highly processed, store-bought pecan pie:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Pecan Pie:
Typical Ingredients: 3 eggs, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup corn syrup, butter, 1 cup white flour, shortening
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Marie Callendar's Southern Pecan Pie:
Ingredients: Filling, Corn Syrup, Eggs, Pecan, Water, Margarine (Soybeans Oil Liquid, and Soybeans Oil Partially Hydrogenated, Water, Salt, Vegetables Mono and Diglycerides, Soy Lecithin, Sodium Benzoate [Preservative], Citric Acid, Flavors Artificial Butter, Beta Carotene, Vitamin A Palmitate, Calcium Disodium EDTA, added to protect flavor), Food Starch Modified, Flavors Artificial, Salt, Caramel Color, Crust: Wheat Flour Enriched (Flour, Niacin Vitamin B3, Iron Reduced, Thiamine Mononitrate Vitamin B1, Riboflavin Vitamin B2, Folic Acid Vitamin B9), Vegetables Shortening (Soybeans Oil Partially Hydrogenated, May Contain: Soybeans Oil Partially Hydrogenated, and/or Cottonseed Oil), Water, Dough Conditioners (Dextrose, Wheat Starch, Salt, Baking Soda, Calcium Propionate, Vegetables Shortening [Soybeans Oil Partially Hydrogenated, May Contain: Soybean Oils Partially Hydrogenated, and/or Cottonseed Oil], Sodium Bisulfite), Dextrose, Salt
The store-bought version contains GMO ingredients (soy lecithin, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, corn syrup), refined salt, margarine?!, and several preservatives and the homemade version is heavy on the dairy, white flour and white sugar.
You can get the same (or even better!) pecan pie taste with the easy, healthy truffles and they're organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, lectin-free, no-bake, paleo-friendly and contain no refine sugar!
