Raw Pecan Love Pie

Homemade pies can be a lot of fun to make, and you can put your love right into it.

“Regular” pies are of course contain lots of white sugar, butter, gluten, dairy products, etc. But now especially that the seasons are shifting, the natural energy of this season is go inwards, and a little treat here and there may feel really nourishing to you. Good desserts go a long way to heal our body, mind, and soul.

I really love nutmeg and so I really love this pie. While this pie does have some fat (from the nuts) and sugars, it doesn’t contain the aforementioned beauty-busting ingredients. It’s raw too, except for the maple syrup if you use it. Nuts are heavy though so remember a little bit of this pie goes a long way!

Now you can make your pie with love and eat it too.

  • Corrin Bennett

    I made this raw pecan pie and it is heavenly!! I left it in the freezer by mistake and served it as a frozen treat. My guests loved it and thought I had made a semi-freddo with a luscious crust. So-o-o delicious.

  • Mar

    Hi Kimberly! I am writing from Lima, Perú. I have just started with the GGS and love it. Thanks a lot, it has really helped me in this 5 days I have been drinking it (no more bloating, better digestion, no constipation…great!). I have some questions: I started a month ago going twice a week to the gym. I went to Pilates for two years and really did see no major changes in my body. I am 47, kind of skinny (125 pounds and 5.24 foot) but I have cellulite in my thigh and it is now appearing a bit in my belly. It really worries me. How can I make it go away? Will Yoga help? If so, what kind should I practice? Hata Yoga, Power Yoga…I am lost. Thanks for your book, your blog, your daily tips! Have a nice day! Bless. Nancy

  • Elle

    I want to try this recipe but I want to be clear the 2/3 cup filtered water is that what I should soak the raw pecans in or should I soak them in water and also add 2/3 cup filtered water to the recipe?

    • Joanna

      I made this by soaking it in water and after it was done I dumped the water out and then just added the filtered water and it came out amazinng!

  • http://getsometoday-juiceplus.com Sheila

    Great question Elle. Is the water for soaking purposes or is it combined with the other ingredients?

  • Annie

    Awesome recipe ! My husband and my kids would love to eat it every day !

  • Caitlin

    Love the filling, but if you are looking for a firm, drier raw crust I highly recommend this one:

    I don’t like sticky, overly sweet raw crust, and the one I recommend tastes a lot like the buttery pastry pie dough in cooked pie. Paired with this pecan filling, my pie turned out phenomenal!!

  • Amanda

    Would love to try this but I am allergic to coconut, (the only thing I’m allergic when ingested). So I get stuck with a lot of these raw-food recipes.

    Any suggestions for substitutions?

  • Sharon

    I tried the recipe, was good but wasn’t a fan of the raisins in the filling, next time I will try dates for the filling as well, I made a few mini crusts, they are great with berries and cashew creme

    I love looking through an article that can make people think.
    Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

  • Sunshine

    I feel like 1 tsp of salt is way too much salt!! i had to add more of all the other ingredients to balance out the saltiness (and i love salt). But I am still excited to try it and it’s my first raw pie!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  • Brittany

    Finally made this last night in spirit of Thanksgiving! It was so delicious, it made me dance! :))))
