This is a big improvement on this previously sugar-laden pie, used to be my favorite before I became diabetic. And pecans are right up there as a very nutrient dense nut, much better than peanuts for example. I will try this now.

But this is still not sugar-free because there are still carbs in the various ingredients from the dough, Grape-nuts, and they turn to blood sugar. A better label would be "No Sugar Added" because there are sugars/carbs in several of the ingredients.

But this is a really big improvement for the annual eating of the pie which I do at Thanksgiving family activities. I figure once a year isn't horrible..

Made this for Thanksgiving dinner and good substitute for the real thing. Happy with the results and will make them again.

This recipe has fewer carbs than most recipes. That is why I like this pie so much. My husband could eat the whole thing. But I won't let him.LOL

Just in time for the holidays! This is fantastic. I've read some other sugar free pecan pie recipes, but this one seems so much easier to make and I like the way it is sweetened. A good idea for me would be to print this one and send it to my friends in a Christmas card and ask them to each bake and send me one for Christmas. lol
