With all the hard work involved in preparing Thanksgiving dinner, I figure we could all use more dessert recipes that don’t require an oven, especially if you’re still celebrating the holiday festivities. I have to say that I do love cooking but I also love the simplicity and when it comes to the holidays, the simpler the better. All you need to prepare this raw pecan pie is a food processor!

Health Benefits

Pecans have been known to reduce the risk of high cholesterol levels, hypertension, diabetes, gallstone disease, and cancer. They have high antioxidant properties and help in weight management. They are rich in fats but also contain protein and fiber which may make one feel full for a longer duration and thus helps in lowering the intake of other high-calorie foods. They are also beneficial in maintaining blood sugar levels, especially for those suffering from diabetes. Pecans are rich in magnesium which has been known for its anti-inflammatory benefits and shown to help lower blood pressure. Pecans contain more than 19 vitamins and minerals – including vitamin A, vitamin E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, several B vitamins, and zinc.
