Paleo Pecan Pie Bars

Paleo Pecan Pie Bars

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! I am sharing a favorite recipe for Paleo Pecan Pie Bars that I made for Thanksgiving.

This is a rich dessert perfect not only for Thanksgiving but also for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and any other holiday or celebration. Even though I made it healthier by using unprocessed ingredients, this dessert is very rich and sweet, and I would eat it in moderation.

I made this dessert twice – the first time I used mostly honey and some maple syrup for the pecan topping and it turned out amazing. The second time, I used only maple syrup and it was too runny, so I don’t recommend substituting honey with maple syrup in this recipe.

    What a great spin on pecan pie! They look chewy and delicious.

  • Alisa @ Go Dairy Free

    Yum! These look so much better than pecan pie! I love the blend of sweeteners (can taste it now) and bet this would work perfectly as dairy-free paleo with coconut oil, too!

  • Rachel @ Simple Seasonal

    These looks so rich and wonderful! It reminds me of my Mom’s pecan pie recipe (minus the Karo), which is one of my husband’s favorites. I’ll have to try these out on him, as they’re much healthier!

  • Nellie

    Wow! I’m almost licking my screen! Those look amazing…and healthy!?!? What’s not to love! I’m thinking they would be perfect for my goodie Christmas baskets this year!

  • Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert

    Pecan pie is one of my favorite desserts! This seems like a great way to enjoy it in snack form!

  • LydiaF

    Sticky is good when it comes to pecan pie 🙂

  • Marisa Franca @ All Our Way

    The bars look so good. I love pecan pie and only make it at Thanksgiving. This would be a great way to enjoy it throughout the year.

  • Jennifer Stewart

    Pecan bars are my favorite but not eating gluten makes it hard to eat them. I went paleo almost 2 years ago and love the lifestyle. I do cheat with some wine and some french fries every now and then but this dessert is totally calling to me!

  • Patricia @ Grab a Plate

    Wow – these looks so great! I’d much rather have these than pecan pie (I’m a “bar” lover!). Wonderful and love that they’re made w/ such good ingredients!

  • Diane

    Ok. I will come eat at your house! These bars look so good, my hubby may come too! Yummy!! We looked at your beautifully presented pictures and decided. Yep, Dessert’s on you! These bars look so crunchy, moist and flavorful. A perfect dessert for the holidays!

  • Jordan

    2/4 cup honey? Should that just be 1/2 cup?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Oops, yes, it should be 1/2 cup! Thanks for catching that! 🙂

  • Yolanda

    I made these, AMAZING! Any idea on the calorie count per serving?

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Glad you liked them, Yolanda! 🙂 You can use myfitnesspal.com to check the calorie count.

  • Penny

    These are just AMAZING. Wow. I substituted 1/2 the almond flour with coconut flour but the result was still the same. Mine don’t look as perfect as yours but boy are they good! 😀 Thanks for the recipe.

  • Katie

    I just made these & had them cool on counter for an hour and then in the fridge for an hour but they seem quite soft ? …too moist to cut. I didn’t bring the topping to a boil..wasn’t sure if I was supposed to or just take off heat when mixture was smooth & mixed together? Hopefully I didn’t ruin them?! Do they get more firm the longer they sit in the refrigerator? Thanks!

  • Lori

    These are amazing! That’s all I can say.

    • Delicious Meets Healthy (author)

      Thanks, Lori! So glad you liked them!

  • sharon

    The crust is delicious, and can be used with other fillings – maybe pumpkin pie or cashew ‘cream cheese’ pumpkin, apple, cherry, etc. Made the recipe as directed and loved it. Next time, I will double the filling, except for the pecans; maybe just a bit too much nuts and not enough soft caramelly for me. I’ll be using that crust for lots of desserts. Thanks for an outstanding recipe.
