Grain Free Pecan Bars
Makes 16 bars
Optional: but I highly suggest
fine almond flour
softened but not melted
Substitute 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Instructions for pecan filling:
Add all ingredients for the pecan filling to a food processor and process for about 20-30 seconds. The pecan filling should be completely smooth and easily able to spread.
Instructions for cookie crust:
Add all ingredeints for the cookie crust to either a bowl or a food processor and mix it all up. The crust should be sticky and resemble wet sand.
Add to a greased 8x8 baking dish, press down with your fingers, and bake 350 F for 10-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown on top
Let the cookie crust cool completely
Assembling the pecan bars
Spread the pecan filling over crust and smooth it over to create an even layer.
Top with a layer of whole pecans
Bake 350 F for 10 minutes
Once done baking let it cool for about 20 minutes and then transfer to refrigerator and let it sit for about 30 minute- 1 hour to allow the bars to firm up
Cut into 16 bars
Store in airtight container in refrigerator or freezer
