Pecan Crust Pumpkin Mousse Pie

Fall is my favorite season by far and every year it never fails to bring out my inner baketress.

It is becoming easier adapting recipes to suit our primal guidelines and this low sugar, gluten free dessert was a hit. Not only a pretty healthy treat, but my house smells like heaven too!

Oh, and it is so easy to make, bonus!

Pecan Crust Ingredients
1 cup pecans
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp honey

To make the crust freeze the pecans first, then crush them however you like. I put them in a ziploc and pound with a rolling pin. Add the coconut flour, cinnamon and set aside.
Melt the butter, add the honey and salt.
Lightly toss the nut mixture with the butter mixture and gently press into a pie pan. 

Filling Ingredients
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1/3 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup heavy cream
4 oz. neufchatel cheese
1/2 medium banana
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 eggs
2 egg whites
cinnamon and or pumpkin pie spice to taste
salt to taste.

Dump all the filling ingredients in a blender until well blended. Pour in pie shell and bake as follows:

preheated 425 degrees for 10 minutes

325 for about 40-50 minutes or until cracks appear on top.
Don't wait for the center to be completely firm, it will set as you cool it.

** This is not a low fat, weird sugar substitute, processed frankenfood recipe, nor is it meant to be. Just real food and quality ingredients. I hope you like it!
