Pecan pie is one of the worst fall foods for your waistline. “I personally love pecan pie, but it’s one of the highest calorie pies there is,” Jessica Hoffman, a dietitian, told PennLive. This isn’t the case for CookingLight’s oatmeal pecan pie, however, which is packed with heart-healthy nuts and oats. The recipe yields 12 servings, and each contains 311 calories and 11.3 grams of fat.
