Pecan Pie with Ginger Infused Honey - a more healthy recipe without refined sugar

It just seems that as soon as the mornings get even a little cool in the south you suddenly think about a slice of pecan pie.

Delicious yes but to us, the recipes have just become overly sweet and loaded with refined sugars.

We went looking for a healthier option.  This is our take on a more "healthy" pecan pie inspired by A Sweet Pea Chef https://www.asweetpeachef.com/healthy-pecan-pie/ it features our delicious Ginger Infused Honey and Candied Ginger Pecans

We think you will love it. Easy to make, it will be a fall favorite.
