The holiday season is not complete without pecan pie.  The soothing flavor of cinnamon and buttery taste of crunchy pecans combine to create a harmonious blend of flavors.  This holiday recipe is also simple to create if you have a food processor or high-power blender on hand. It is a no-bake recipe and doesn’t require any flour, butter, or refined sugar–it utilizes natural ingredients, but still retains the comforting and warm flavors of traditional pecan pie.

This pie is dense and filling, yet leaves you feeling light without the usual bloated feeling.   The crust is made out of nuts and natural fruits topped with a smooth and creamy layer of cinnamon sweetness.
