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.

These sticky Paleo pecan pie bars are ooey gooey and so delicious, you will lick your fingers. These bars are a pecan pie lovers dream.

Hope you enjoy them and happy 1st of December!  🙂

Pecan Topping

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup honey

4 Tbsp almond milk

6 Tbsp grass-fed butter (ghee for Paleo)

Instructions

Crust

Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix flour, coconut sugar, finely grounded pecans, salt in a mixing bowl. Add softened grass-fed butter and mix using your hands until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Bake at 350 F for 20 – 25 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack for about 20 – 30 minutes.

Pecan Topping

Bring maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, almond milk, grass-fed butter and salt extract to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until butter melts and the mixture is smooth; boil stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract and 3 cups coarsely chopped pecans. Pour pecan topping over cooled crust.

Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes or until filling bubbles. Cool bars completely in pan on a wire rack, about 1 hour. Chill bars 1 hour before cutting.

    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.

  2. 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!

    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.

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

    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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

    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.
