Paleo pecan pie

So I searched around for a bit on the internet and could not find a paleo interpretation for this very Southern treat. In its traditional form the Pecan Pie can be almost sickeningly sweet, especially to those accustomed to a Paleolithic lifestyle. However, with the holidays approaching it will become more and more difficult to stick to a healthy diet. Make a pie like this and bring it to your next holiday shin dig. You will have a healthier option when dessert time rolls around and your friends will likely enjoy it too.

Paleo Pecan Pie

6 dates
3 eggs
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp coconut oil
1.25 cups pecans

Pie Crust
1.5 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together crust ingredients in small bowl. Press into pie dish to form crust. Bake for 5 minutes.
Prepare filling by putting dates into a food processor. Run until dates have formed a paste (make sure to remove the pits first). Add egg, syrup, vanilla, flour, and oil. Blend in food processor into smooth and well mixed. Gently fold in pecans to the mixture. Pour filling into the pie crust. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the pie is set. Allow to cool and enjoy!!
