Vegan Pecan Pie Bites

 

Taking any dessert to a party will get some ooohs and aaahs. Throw in a, “oh, and they’re vegan, too!” and get lots of: “What?” “But how?” “Oh cool!” “So what is it made of?”

It’s a fun party trick that I play a LOT with these vegan pecan pie bites. They’re so good and so naturally sweet that no one ever believes that they’re vegan until I start talking about dates.

These are super fun and easy to make around the holiday season, and everyone loves them (even little kids as long as you don’t explain to them what a date is).

Bite-Sized Pecan Pie Bites

Growing up in Tennessee, pecan pie was a staple for any holiday. If we’re being honest, it was a staple for really any time of year, because you could typically find pecan pies in all shapes, sizes, and forms at my grandfathers house, usually hiding under a kitchen cloth and in an aluminum disposable pie pan.
