Pecan Pie Bars with a Twist

Pecan Pie Bars – (This post is sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill, but I have used the product and the following is my experience and opinion.)

 There are many different types of pies but pecan pie for some reason is favorited by many. It could be the toasted crunchy pecans or the custard filling, maybe the buttery flaky pie crust, in reality, the combination of all three makes the perfect pie that you would enjoy or share with your loved ones.

Most pecan pie fillings have corn syrup but I have replaced it with two ingredients that not only taste good but are good for you. These two ingredients are my twist to this pecan pie bar recipe. I have used Honey and molasses.

I have used the best ingredients to make these pecan pie bars, and the crust alone tastes like a fine shortbread. To make this amazing pie crust I’ve used Bob’s Red Mill Organic all-purpose flour. You can taste and see the difference when baking with high-quality flour.

These pecan pie pars are easy for you to giveaway as a gift. I have individually wrapped each bar in a plastic wrap and I was happy to share these delicious delights with my family. You can gift these bars to the less fortunate, make their day by surprising them with homemade and freshly baked pecan pie bars, which I’m sure they won’t just enjoy but will highly appreciate.

It is easy to convert this recipe to gluten-free by using Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free baking flour. Add more water to the dough (a tablespoon at a time) or add a medium size egg. To roll the dough evenly place parchment paper under and on top of the dough and roll it into the shape you desire.

You might be hesitant to use honey in this recipe but do trust me, the texture and the flavor are amazing. I hope that you give this recipe a try and don’t forget to share the love! One more thing, you can get $1 off when buying Bob’s Red Mill product just click here.

Tip: Place the pecan pie in the fridge after it cools down completely. Use a sharp knife to cut the bars. Make sure to cut equal size bars. Immediately, wrap with plastic wrap and place back in the fridge until it’s time to eat or distribute.
