GLUTEN FREE BLENDER PECAN PIE
Gluten Free Blender Pecan Pie
This dish is literally child’s play – homage to the basics: simple, fun, healthy and happy. It really is the embodiment of blend and live. Just throw everything in your blender and puree until smooth. It takes less than 5 minutes. How easy is that? More importantly, it is absolutely delicious; and dare I say it, downright impressive. This pie has been a staple treat in my family for about 30 years. Mom found this recipe in an old Southern cookbook at a second hand book store on a trip to New Orleans back in the 80’s and we have been chowing down with joy ever since! The cookbook is long gone, but the memories still remain. Over the years mom and I have experimented and adapted this recipe using natural sweeteners, dairy-free milks and gluten-free flours. For those of you not on a restricted diet, feel free to use regular cow’s milk, wheat flour and sugar. However, I can honestly say that it tastes better this way, and we all know it is more healthy. Just a few tips – this recipe responds better with creamy milks like soy and hemp milk, rather than rice and oat milk; and if you use too much liquid sweetener it can take a long time to set. To rectify this, add in a little bit more flour. Stick closely to the ratios and you will be good to go. Please note that I have made this pie dairy-free used grapeseed oil instead of butter, but the pie will only take 1 hour to set, and will have a much milder flavor. You will need to add more sweeteners. Either way – this pie is scrumptious!
