For the crust

For the filling


  • Start by preheating the oven to 350F and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl add in the almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon and mix until you can form a dough ball. Gently press the almond flour dough into the lined 8x8 baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15minutes or until lightly golden.

Make the filling.

  • While the crust is in the oven, add the maple sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon to a medium sauce pan and cook on medium heat until the mixture begins to boil, simmer for 15 seconds then add in the pecans. Stir to get them fully coated in the caramel mixture and cook for about 20-30 more seconds, then immediately pour the pecan mixture onto your baked almond crust. Gently spread the pecans onto the almond crust using a rubber spatula. Work quickly because the mixture will seize up.
  • Bake for an additional 18 minutes, remove from the oven and cool the pecan pie bars completely. Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight before slicing and enjoying these healthy treats.


Store these pecan pie bar in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 hours. Whenever you are ready to enjoy these, pop them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds to enjoy an ooey gooey pecan pie bar treat.
