Paleo Pecan Pie Bars (Vegan)

Paleo Pecan Pie Bars that are vegan, grain-free, dairy-free, sweet, gooey, and buttery for the most amazing nutty treat. This caramel-covered dessert recipe is fun to make and perfect for sharing with friends and family during the holiday season.

Have you ever dreamt up a sinfully addictive dessert that is all-things gooey, chewy, soft yet crunchy, caramel-y yet crispy, creamy and nutty with an explosion of flavor and texture?

That is, in a nutshell, these Paleo Pecan Pie Bars.

…Or pecan goo bars as I like to call them.

The only thing that could possibly make them better is if they were dipped in dark chocolate. 

Grain-Free Paleo Pecan Pie Bars - vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, healthy dessert recipe

First things first: I mentioned this in my recent post for Keto Pecan Pie, but I find some people turn their nose up to pecan desserts because they assume they won’t like them (this was me the first 18 years of my life).

Before you decide you don’t need these bars in your life, let me line out all the reasons you do. Starting with an overly descriptive summary of what a pecan bar actually is.

If you’ve never tried pecan pie or pecan bars, here’s the basic gist: Delectably maple-y gooey pecans engulfed in homemade caramel nestled on top of a buttery shortbread crust with a perfect thin layer of crisp at the top as well as a nice crunch at the bottom. 

It’s basically two layers of wild, wild rebellion.

Don’t cancel me.

Aside from being paleo, vegan, dairy-free, grain-free, and sweetened with less processed sugars, these pecan pie bars are a true delight to make. 

They’re a great family project to make with kidlets as well as lovely edible gifts for friends and family. I highly encourage you to make them for dessert for Thanksgiving!

Let’s talk ingredients.

Imagine this: all the colors and flavors of fall jam packed into one healthy pumpkin cake. It comes together lightning fast, and gifts your taste buds an utter explosion of pumpkin flavor.
