Default Sugar Free Pecan Pie

Here is one recipe my neighbor had. I may have more from family. Some of the diabetics here should get the chance at pecan pie too .

Sugar Free Pecan Pie

3 Tbsp butter

3 Tbsp Truvia (sweetener for diabetics) or 3/4 C molasses

Few grains of salt

3/4 C Agave Necotr

1/2 C canned milk

3 eggs

3/4 tsp vanilla

1 C chopped pecans

1 unbaked pie shell

Cream butter, slowly beat in Truvia or molasses Agave Nector, and salt. Add eggs on at a time and beat briskly. Add milk, vanilla, and pecans. Then blend entire mixture. Pour into pastry lines piepan. Bake 10 minutes in 450 degree oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake until custard sets; about 30 minutes. Serve plain or with sweetened whipped cream. Add pecan halves over top of pie if desired.

For those wanting a different recipe, here's another from my mother:

SUGAR-FREE PECAN PIE


Beat three eggs thoroughly with 2/3 cup of Splenda, dash salt, one cup of Brown Rice Syrup, and one-third cup melted butter or margarine.

Add one cup pecan halves. Pour into nine-inch unbaked pastry shell.

Bake 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between center and edge of pie comes out clean. Cool before cutting.



FYI:

I adapted this recipe from a Southern Pecan Pie recipe in a Better Homes & Gardens recipe booklet which I obtained in the 1970ís. It called for 2/3 cup of sugar and one cup of dark corn syrup.

To make it sugar-free, I knew I could use Splenda but didnít know what to do about the syrup.

I went to Central Market and inquired what I could use instead of Karo and they recommended Brown Rice Syrup, and it worked great. You can get the Brown Rice Syrup at Central Market or Whole Foods for about $4.50 a bottle. It makes two pies. Other stores may have it now and in particular, I would try HEB since they own Central Market.

Not to rain on your parade with what looks like a delicious recipe, but agave nectar is about 50% fructose, and brown rice is mostly maltose. Both of these are in fact sugars, and by no means are they healthy. As for diabetics, the GI of brown rice syrup is incredibly high (98), and while a diabetic can intake fructose without spiking glucose levels, it is terrible in the long term as it builds insulin resistance.

Just pointing out that they are not, in fact, sugar free as the thread title says.

A happy thanksgiving to you as well!

Thanks NanR .



I'm pretty sure the caloric intake is much lower than regular pecan pie. In moderation of course. Which in turn keeps the "BS" down, so to speak . While allowing some who take insulin to still enjoy what others take for granted. And when it comes down to it, there are not many plant based products that are not sugars or used as sugars by the human body. Back when I was racing Triathlon regularly, maltodextrin was my go to rocket fuel seeing how it's almost as close as one can get to in-taking glucose with out taking glucose, (words from a former USACycling coach, triathlete, and personal trailer).

Ha! I almost bought some "near beer" last weekend . It still has something like 1/2 of 1% alcohol. And Alcohol is a sugar the body can not burn or very easily. Has to be passed some how . One ounce of alcohol as 7 calories on average, the only known product to have a differing number from consumption.

Carbs = 4 calories per gram, Protein = 4 calories per gram, and fats = 9 calories per gram. Those are also the order the body uses them in. And stores them first, in the reverse direction: fats, proteins, carbs.

During my peak training periods, I was taking in 4k-6k in calories per day. Yes, per day. But was 158-162lbs. My last race was in 2003 at 46 yoa. And left the health and fitness industry in May of 2005.

Love finding good sugar free recipes. Not just for me (TypeII) but for making sure my little one doesnt end up diabetic too. (for some reason she only seems to like junk food...10 years old) Thank you sir.

Being type ll myself it's very hard to find anything with little or no sugar. Anything that has ose on the end of it is sugar. Desserts at thanksgiving and Christmas are hard to stay away from and being diabetic makes it even harder. Don't like sugar free anything myself cause to me the taste isn't the same. But to stay as healthy as possible and still eat good is a challenge. Trick is to not eat as much. Very hard to do also. Kudos from me to anyone who has a recipe that tastes good and isn't bad for you
