I have to admit I wasn’t a fan of pecan growing up, but oh how times change lol! That gooey, caramel-like filling & savory nutty crunch? Yes please!

These bars are a healthier option with a high protein base, made with just 8 simple ingredients, & still taste like a delicious slice of classic pecan pie 👏 It might become your new favorite… & not only for the holidays or dessert! Makes 9 bars.
