Jord is the pecan pie lover in our family. But I am a lover of anything candied pecans so you can imagine how obsessed we both are with this recipe for healthy Pecan Pie Bars.

At first I was going to make a healthy pecan pie recipe, but I personally am a fan of bars more than pie. This recipe though is the ultimate dessert to bring to any Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving get togethers and they are a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Plus it is truly shocking how easy they are to make. And once you see the limited ingredients needed, you will be wondering why the traditional pecan pie ingredients are so decadent and insane.

I love that this recipe has no corn syrup either. You will need maple syrup or honey (either works) with some coconut sugar and that’s the only form of sugar, which makes me the happiest. I don’t love my desserts overly sweet but I still want them to taste delicious and dreamy and satisfy my sweet tooth. Which this recipe 100% does.

  1. Made these for Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit. No one believed they were paleo! I don’t bake a lot but these were very easy. Thank you!
