Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup oil I used olive oil, but softened coconut oil would also work.
  • 4-5 Tbs cold almond milk

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • To assemble your crust, stir flour and salt together in a mixing bowl. Then, add your oil and almond milk, not stirring until both oil and almond milk have been poured into your flour mixture. (Start with 4 Tbs almond milk, and add extra tablespoon if mixture is dry.)
  • Using a rolling pin (and a sprinkle of flour, if needed) roll crust out onto a greased or lined rimmed cookie sheet. (I used a 15 x 10 in. pan.)
  • Fork your crust in numerous places.
  • Sprinkle chopped pecans evenly across the top of your crust.
  • Drizzle maple syrup evenly over the top of your pecans/crust. If you are trying to go easy on sweets and don't want to use the full 3/4 cup of maple syrup, feel free to use less. I found that once baked, 3/4 cup was the perfect amount for my taste buds.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 25 minutes.
  • Remove bars from the oven and allow to cool for about 2 minutes, before scoring. Cutting your bars once your crust has completely cooled is difficult, so go ahead and cut them while they are still fairly hot.
  • Leave scored bars in the pan to cool for 10 more minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
  • Store your pecan pie bars in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Notes

The idea for this recipe comes from my friend from church, Debbie Simpson. Thanks, Debbie, for telling me how you made your amazing potluck cookie bars!
