Healthy Vegan Pecan Bars with a shortbread crust and loaded with nuts.
These healthy vegan pecan bars with a shortbread-style crust are perfect for your holiday feast. These are vegan, refined sugar-free, and loaded with nuts. These healthy vegan pecan bars are the perfect portion for a snack or dessert. They are pretty much a pecan pie but in the form of a bar. My coworkers and my family loved these bars so much. It’s amazing how you can twist a recipe to make it healthy and still enjoy some sweetness.
For these bars, I used monk fruit and replaced the corn syrup with agave syrup. I love using the Lakanto brand because you use the same ration and it won’t change the flavor. You can also check out my Apple Cider Sugar-Free Donuts recipe for another delicious fall dessert. These pecan bars are way heavier on the pecans than on the filling, so if you’re a big fan of pecans but not so much the super sweet pie filling, these are just for you.
These bars could not possibly be any easier to make. The crust is mixed by hand, pressed into the pan, just a whisk of the filling ingredient, folding in the pecans, and done. These bars are all about the pecans! To enhance the pecan flavor, roast pecan halves in the oven over 300 degrees F for 8 minutes. This step is optional but totally recommended.

These fun Peanut Butter Jelly Fruity Caterpillar Kebabs are loaded with fresh fruit and protein. They’re a healthy snack the kids can help to prepare!
This is a fun idea for breakfast or snack for all your family. The ingredients are simple pantry staples that you probably already have. I used creamy peanut butter, guava jelly and fresh fruits but you can use your own ingredients.
I also used sugar eyes that I had for my cake decorating but you can use a tiny piece of banana or a chocolate chip.
