Bacon Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Bacon for dessert? Yes please. This recipe is totally organic, totally Paleo and totally Eat Clean Diet approved.

Crust Ingredients:
3/4 cup almond meal
3/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup coconut oil, liquid
1 T unprocessed organic cocoa flour
1 tsp raw honey
1/4 tsp salt
Water as needed
Spray coconut oil

Filling Ingredients:
15oz can pumpkin
6oz goat’s milk yogurt
1/3 cup stevia
1 banana
2 egg yolks
1 tsp honey
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 cup chopped pecans
4 pieces cooked organic bacon
3 T pure maple syrup

Directions for crust:
Mix ingredients in a bowl and add water 1 tablespoon at a time until it becomes a partially wet moisture that you can spread on a 9 inch pie pan. Use excess coconut oil or spray coconut oil to prep the pie pan, then spread the filling mixture evenly.

Directions for filling:
Add first six ingredients to a large bowl. Use a stand up mixture or a hand mixture to thoroughly mix ingredients, including making sure that the banana is evenly mashed. Spread this mixture evenly in the pie plate.
Break up cooked bacon into small pieces and spread evenly along the top of the pie along with the pecans. Once the pie has been topped with bacon and pecans, drizzle the maple syrup along the entirety of the pie.

Bake the pie at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until pecans begin to turn dark brown or crust becomes crispy.

    This looks really good. I don't have time this year for thanksgiving but I'll give this a try next year.

You mind if I ask a really dumb question (and I mean no offense by this)....if you are going out of your way to get the most unprocessed foods possible, why buy canned pumpkin? Pumpkin puree is really easy to make on your own and pumpkin itself is really easy to can at home as long as you can it in chunks and blend it down later when needed. That seems like it would be the last thing to substitute in the recipe to be as unprocessed as possible.
