Pecans may just be the most underrated nuts – did you know that they have healthy fats, along with preventing oxidative stress? They can also help maintain heart health with their antioxidants and help reduce inflammation! Ready to go nuts with pecans? Here are some awesome vegan pecan dessert recipes from the Food Monster App that show off the many delicious sides of this underrated nut.

1. Raw Chia Caramel Pecan Pie

This Raw Chia Caramel Pecan Pie is a raw version of the holiday food favorites, but who said raw pecan pie isn’t for summer? The real deal isn’t necessarily the healthiest thing you can put in your stomach. They are pretty much white flour, sugar, butter, raisins, more butter, and more sugar. This is a superhero, nutrient-dense pecan pie.

2. Easy Date Caramel Pecan Piepecanpie2

This Date Caramel Pecan Pie starts with an easy oat and pecan crust and it’s filled with creamy date caramel. Add a sprinkle of sea salt, a dollop of coconut whipped cream, and some artfully placed pecans to finish off this healthy, refined sugar-free treat!

3. Paleo Pecan Piepecanpie

This Paleo Pecan Pie is so creamy, delicious, and dense, no one would ever guess that it’s raw and paleo! The crust is made primarily with pecans, walnuts, and dried mulberries, and the cashew filling is sweetened with dates and swirled with coconut cream. Top this pie with plenty of healthy pecans and a generous drizzle of maple syrup!

4. Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars With Date Caramelpecanpie

Truth be told these Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars With Date Caramel, that are reaching the ultimate level of yum in your tum. Think a crunchy, maple-flavored crust that is the foundation of the extremely soft and chewy caramel layer that is secretly made of dates, and then a crunchy, sticky-sweet ending of toasty-roasty pecans with swirls of melty, ooey-gooey chocolate. It’s complete fall dessert bliss.

5. Raw Pecan Pie Delightsbars

These Raw Pecan Pie Delight bars are great for anyone with a busy lifestyle, and especially athletes. They are packed full of energizing raw foods that will help you either fuel for a workout or recover from one.

6. No-Bake Sweet Potato Chocolate Mousse Pecan Piesweet-potato-chocolate-mousse-pecan-pie-1200x750

This Sweet Potato Chocolate Mousse Pecan Pie, a holiday dessert masterpiece, will be the first to disappear from the table. A chocolatey crust made from pecans and gooey dates is filled with a rich, decadent chocolate mousse filling made from sweet potato and sweetened naturally with dates. Not only does this pie taste delicious, it is made from nourishing ingredients, so that’s cause for even more celebration!

7. Perfect Mini Pecan Piesminipie-1200x755

Are you the kind of person who has to try every single type of pie at the Thanksgiving table? Consider adding these Perfect Mini Pecan Pies to your selection: they’re perfect for tasting because, well, they’re mini! Instead of the traditional corn syrup and brown sugar that goes into the sugary-sweet filling, a mixture of coconut oil and pecan butter is used instead, for a healthier alternative that tastes every bit as decadent as the original.

8. Pecan Pie Bliss BallsPecan-Pie-Bliss-Balls-Vegan-1200x800

Going to the cinema calls for decent snacks and believe me when I say these Pecan Pie Bliss Balls are fit for the occasion. These little bites of heaven are a great alternative to the overpriced ‘nasties’ that are often offered. The medjool dates in them create a natural, candy-like sweetness while the pecans and almonds add a wonderfully nutty, crunchy taste. It might be hard to believe that this simple combination of ingredients could taste like pecan pie but they do!
