Pecan Pie Bars

Here’s my take on one of my paleo pecan bar pie favorites! I make these everything Thanksgiving and they get more delicious each year. While they make a great dessert, they also go well with coffee for a delicious low-carb, high-fat breakfast.

PS, I’m still on that anti-artificial sweeteners kick we talked about before.  Here is yet another tasty recipe completely artificial sweetener free, but delicious enough to fool your taste buds!

Tip: I no longer use artificial sweeteners in my recipes. If you still use sweeteners, these may not be sweet enough for you. Try adding liquid stevia drops or Swerve to your desired sweetness level.
