Are Pecan Pie Bars Good For You

Pecan pie is one of my favorite desserts, however, the traditional version is LOADED with sugar.

This version of pecan pie has less sugar, no corn syrup, and still tastes absolutely amazing.

With a rich dairy-free caramel sauce, they taste just like salted caramel pecan pie bars.

I only used coconut sugar and almond butter to sweeten up this recipe, so there are no refined sugars in this holiday recipe.

Additionally, using a graham cracker crust makes this recipe paleo-friendly and much lower in carbs as well.

This vegan, gluten-free, paleo friendly and refined sugar-free. This pecan pie recipe still tastes like a traditional pecan pie!
