Today’s recipe went through several iterations to get it just right. I have to say that I’m pretty proud of the final result. So, even though the holidays are over, this one is just too good not to share with you. I’m sure these paleo pecan pie bars be a hit over the holidays next year, but I’d say they’re nutritious enough to sneak in this winter, too. Once you give them a try, I think you’ll agree.
The topping on these low carb pecan pie bars is just like your favorite pecan pie, with a salted caramel twist and pecan topping. Gooey and crunchy at the same time, these sugar-free dessert bars are the perfect replacement for pecan pie. Plus, they are so easy to make.
I have to confess, I’m also obsessed with the scrumptious shortbread crust on these bars, too. I’ll definitely be using that again for bars in the future. I love how easy it is! Those with egg allergies will also appreciate that the crust is egg-free, as is this entire recipe.
I served these paleo pecan pie bars at a family gathering over the holidays, and my cousin said they were “like crack”. Pretty funny, but also awesome to hear! No one would believe me when I told them they were low carb, paleo, and totally sugar-free. I love it when that happens.
The best part is that these paleo pecan pie bars are totally guilt-free. Each bar packs in calcium, iron, 10 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and healthy coconut oil, with only 2 grams net carbs and 1 gram of sugar! So even though January may be an epic “health month” for many people, with these bars you don’t have to skip dessert. Actually, I’ll admit I’ve even had them for breakfast several times.
