I love this recipe! I made it twice for my Southern Pecan Pie loving Uncle, who never eats desserts anymore due to health concerns, but eats this one! I don't eat sugar, so really don't know what a traditional pecan pie is like, so I can't compare. I cook a lot with honey (my dad is a beekeeper), and I can tell you that the type of honey you use makes a big difference. If you don't want an overpowering honey flavor, then use a light colored mild honey. I use a clover honey which is dark and rich and gives it lots of body. I don't like the store bought clover honey, but I'm guessing this would give it an entirely different taste. I've also used palm sugar (2 cups, since honey is twice as sweet as other sugars), and is much more similar in flavor and texture to a brown sugar (without the high glycemic index.)
For those that have dietary restrictions, or prefer a slightly healthier version, this recipe is great! I made it with a gluten free crust so my mom could enjoy it too. It was a hit this Thanksgiving.
