If healthy (and delicious) treats are your thing then you need these Healthy Pecan Pie Squares in your life! They are quick, easy and sure to delight everyone who takes a bite.

What makes these delightful squares so healthy? No refined sugars AND the crust is made with whole wheat! What’s better than healthy treats that taste amazing? Not much ๐Ÿ˜‰

Why pie squares? I enjoy Pecan Pie but I am not a huge fan of making pie crust. Itโ€™s so much easier to make a pan of pie squares! It also makes a lot more than can fit into a pie dish.

ย Here in Utah we often have Thanksgiving pot luck style! Itโ€™s perfect for lots of family, lots of food and less clean up ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย If you like you can add some homemade whipped cream on top but honestly, my family and I didnโ€™t think they even need any. Get ready for the easiest (and maybe even the tastiest) Thanksgiving pie ever!

Pecan Pie Squares

Crust Ingredients
2 tbsp water
¼ tsp Real Salt
½ cup very cold butter, cubed
Filling Ingredients
4 eggs
¾ cup honey
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 ½ cups chopped pecans

Combine all crust ingredients in a food processor and blend until crumbly. You can also use a pastry blender for this. Press into a 9x13 pan and bake at 350ยบ for about 20 minutes or until very lightly browned. Remove from oven. For the filling, melt butter in a large sauce pan and cool slightly. Add all other filling ingredients, beating the eggs before adding. Mix well. Pour filling over cooked crust and return to oven for 20-25 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. The knife may still be a little sticky but not wet. Cool pan on a wire rack and refrigerate any leftovers (If there are any haha). These keep very well in the refrigerator for several days.
