My mother in law made me a vegan pecan pie a few years ago but she won't share the recipe because she thinks it came out terribly and doesn't want to embarrass herself. (It came out flat, but it tasted fantastic, btw).

So, does anyone have a vegan pecan pie recipe they can share with me? I have a hankering.

If you don't have a vegan pecan pie recipe, but think you've got a non-vegan pecan pie recipe that could be easily veganized, I'm all ears.

Sorry---no pie recipie--but I have a vegan pecan muffin recipie.

Pecan Sticky Muffins (vegan)

Pecan (middle) layer
1/4 C canola oil
1/4 C maple sugar powder
1 C chopped/diced pecans
2 T nutritional yeast - grind in coffee grinder after measuring
pinch of salt

Muffin batter - dry
2 C unbleached flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 heaping tsp salt

Muffin batter - wet
1 C soy milk
1/4 C canola oil
1/2 C flax seed mixture: (2T flax seeds, grind, add enough water to
make 1/2 C, beat 50 times by hand so that mixture is "goopy")
1/2 C maple sugar powder
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil muffin cups lightly - recipe makes 12
muffins.

In a small bowl, combine "Pecan layer" ingredients. Mix well.

In a large bowl, sift together "Muffin batter - dry" ingredients.

In a third bowl, mix together "Muffin batter - wet" ingredients until
smooth. Stir into dry ingredients until just moistened.

Into each oiled muffin cup, spoon 1 t batter (spread it out if needed),
1/12 of the pecan layer (spread it out if needed), and then divide up
the rest of the muffin batter to cover the pecan layers.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until muffins test done.
Let stand for 2 minutes; remove from pan and let cool. Serve warm.
