Pecan Pie with Almond Flour Crust

As a lover of pecan pie, I sought out to find ways to make it myself so I can determine exactly what goes in my body. Making your own pie crust used to scare me until I made my own almond flour crust and I don’t think I’ll ever go back! You don’t need to be a skilled baker to make this delight of a pie. This vegan pecan pie is definitely lives up to my expectations.
