Pecan Bars

You have to try these Pecan Bars this holiday season. It is easy and delicious! 

My friend, Dr. Shelby, was over this weekend and we were looking for a sugar free or naturally sweetened desert to make. We tried these bars and they are wonderful so I had to share. It was easy to make and they taste great warm and cold. Here’s what you’ll need:


Crust:
1 1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup granular stevia or swerve
1/4 tsp sea salt 
1/4 cup butter (grass fed)

Filling:
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup powdered stevia/swerve
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup can coconut milk
2 eggs
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup pecans
Half a bar (or the whole bar) of 80% (or higher) dark chocolate

Crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 325F
  • Mix almond flour, sweetener, and salt until coarse crumbs.
  • Press into the bottom of a 9×9 inch pan and bake 12 minutes or until the edges are just turning golden.

Filling:

  • In a medium saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the powdered sweetener and mix until well combined. Remove from heat.
  • Add the vanilla extract and coconut milk mix well. Add the eggs and salt and mix until combined. 
  • Scatter the pecans and chopped chocolate over the crust and pour the filling overtop. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until the filling is mostly set 
  • Remove and enjoy! (If you want pretty bars let cool at least 30 minutes before cutting into bars). 

Let me know if you try this recipe and how it turns out!
