This savory Sweet Potato Pie with a Honey Pecan Crust is a slightly sweet dessert.
October has danced by in a flash and November will be in just a few days, How quickly time is passing by. Summer days are gone and the months of everything pumpkin and autumn related are here. The season of fall colors, sweaters, and pumpkin pie is upon us! (oh, well don’t forget the sweet potato pie)
Do you know hard it is to think about pie when you’re on a 30 day eating clean challenge? It’s rough. haha. All I want to do it eat a giant slice of sweet potato pie or chocolate pie or pecan pie! Hello who’s having ice cream for breakfast on Halloween aka the end of my challenge? This girl!
Well probably not but it’s nice to think like a rebel once in a while. Plus I’m an adult so ice cream (or pie) is completely acceptable for breakfast. Right? 😉
In my attempt to make a clean eating/healthier sweet potato pie that BigBear would enjoy I rolled out with this Honey Pecan Crusted Sweet Potato Pie. Yeah, the name is kind of long but I didn’t want to just call it a “Sweet Potato Pie” because well it’s not just a normal sweet potato pie.
I used honey and pecans to make the crust for it and I used honey, vanilla almond milk and coconut sugar to sweeten it up a bit. A bit different from the normal, baked pastry crust and white sugar loaded sweet potato pies that I’m use to.
I also added some chopped nuts to the top because since my best friend Nikki is allergic to nuts I like to make it known that certain foods I make have nuts in them by using the pecans as garnish. Better safe than sorry. Plus they tasted pretty darn good with the sweet potato pie.
I read a post on Facebook the other day that was asking if Sweet Potato Pie needed to be sweet or savory. I have always been use to them being sweet, but I saw that a few people said “savory”. What’s your preferance? Do you like a “sweet” sweet potato pie or a savory one?
This sweet potato pie has a bit of sweetness but I feel like it’s got more of a savory taste. Or that could be because my taste buds are normally use to being loaded down with sugar 😉
