  3. National Pecan Day: No-Bake Pecan Pie Bites

    Tomorrow is National Pecan Day and we couldn't think of any better way to celebrate than with a healthy, protein-packed pecan recipe! We love incorporating pecans into our recipes because they're packed with essential vitamins and minerals (19 to be exact), like fiber and calcium. Pecans are also high in healthy fats, which keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the day. Is there anything this nut can't do?!

    So we thought we’d honor this delicious nut by putting a healthy spin on a classic comfort food: pecan pie. These sweet little things come together quickly, ACTUALLY taste like pecan pie, and are vegan, raw, and gluten free!
