Pecan Pie Bars


I didn't have the time to make a full on pecan pie much to my dismay so I thought a little pecan pie bar would suffice. 
We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here what with being from the UK, but I love the traditional feasts they have and the desserts look divine - as you may have seen in my previous post my Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes which are perfect for Thanksgiving.

These pecan pie bars are so tasty and really easy to make with just a handful of ingredients. I couldn't make them vegan because I needed something to bind the flour together BUT I will look into this to develop my future recipes. I hope you enjoy this recipe, don't forget to tag me on Instagram @bakelikeavegan_ 😊


Recipe

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 55 minutes
Serves: 12


Ingredients

Base
2 cups Spelt Flour
2 eggs
⅓ cup Honey/Maple Syrup
80g Coconut Oil
1 tsp Caramel Extract (can use vanilla I just wanted a caramel flavour)
pinch of salt
Filling
12 pitted dates
300g plant-based milk - I used Soya
150g Pecans
3 tbsp Spelt Flour
1 tsp caramel extract
pinch of salt
50g dark chocolate melted optional


Method

✿Preheat your oven to 350℉/180℃. Line a rectangle baking tray with grease proof paper.
Make your crust. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients together until a sort of dough texture is formed. Spoon the mixture into baking tray and bake for 15-17 minutes, until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Leave to cool completely. 
Make your filling. In a food processor/blender, blend the dates. Add the milk, flour, extract and salt and mix until well combined. Then add ⅔ of the pecans and pulse a couple of times. 
✿Spoon the filling on top of the crust and then sprinkle the remaining pecans on top. Bake for 35 minutes then leave to cool. 
Melt the chocolate in the microwave and then drizzle on top before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
