You are just 7 ingredients away from a delicious, soft, chewy and healthy pecan pie in bar form.
These pecan pie bars are vegan, gluten-free, oil-free, refined sugar-free, no-bake, only 7 ingredients, 15 minutes to prep and contain a special superfood!
I've mentioned before about my great, great love for pecans and them being my favorite nut of all. If you haven't tried my Roasted Pecan Butter or Pecan Pie Crostini, then you are seriously missing out. Also, the greatest crust I've ever made was in my Bloody Mary Swirl Cheesecake. I used a 50/50 combo of pecans and almonds, syrup and salt (a key ingredient!) and it was the best crust ever. Simple and so delicious and even my family was raving over that crust...and the cheesecake, in case you were wondering.
Back to these bars. I loved pecan pie growing up, but it is just so full of ingredients I try to avoid now, so a healthy bar was in order. These are perfect for a snack or a quick addition to breakfast. They have healthy fats from the pecans, as well as a decent amount of protein. They are also filling because of the oats.
These bars are extra special because they are enhanced by a delicious superfood, that is a natural sweetener from the deserts of Arizona, called mesquite.
The wonderful people over at Vivapura contacted me to try it and give my review. I decided to go one step further and create a delicious recipe with it. Because it has a wonderful, sweet flavor, I didn't need to add much more liquid sweetener to my bars. You may have heard of it before. It tastes similar to lucuma, but I found it to be a little sweeter to me, which my sweet tooth loved. It has an earthy taste with caramel undertones. Update: they are no longer selling this mesquite powder, so you can purchase mesquite powder at the link below within my recipe.
These pecan pie bars take just minutes to prepare. Just 7 ingredients, blend them up, press into a pan and chill. That is it.
Subtly sweet, chewy, soft and perfectly accented with chocolate chips.
Here is my lovely model showing you how perfect of a gift they make too!
