Decadent maple syrup and sweet dates combine to make a smooth and creamy filling for these Vegan Paleo Pecan Pie Bars. Add some nutty chopped pecans, and a delicious shortbread crust – it’s a match made in heaven!
Can you believe it’s the week of Thanksgiving?! I’m sitting here wondering where in the world the time has gone. Next thing we know it’s going to be Christmas!
But enough of that. 😉
Ever since I created my Guilt-Free Pecan Pie Cookies, and received such awesome feedback from my readers on them (You all are amazing! I’m so happy all of you loved them!), I’ve been wanting to modify the recipe to turn it into bars. So that’s what I finally did.
You’re going to love these!
These Vegan Paleo Pecan Pie Bars are super, super decadent. The dates and the maple syrup make the perfect heavenly filling that mimics a traditional pecan pie.
If I didn’t know any better, I would never know these bars are completely egg-free, let alone grain-free and refined sugar-free.
The delicious pecan pie filling sits on top of a delicious shortbread base. I definitely will use this shortbread base for other bar recipes in the future. It turned out exceptionally well, and everyone loved it.
The best part about recipe testing this recipe? Getting to share batch #1 with friends. They all enjoyed them and couldn’t wait for me to post the recipe!
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.
Love you all!
