Step into my kitchen where the magic occurs! Delectable treats can be yours with few ingredients. I even called forth a secret ingredient with my meditative powers, these no-bake pecan pie bars are truly magical! Sweet as sugar with a healthy makeover on the traditional recipe.
Cups of sugar are tossed out, corn syrup is denied access, melted butter and or vegetable shortening or lard are removed. A tasty recipe no doubt that's been transformed into a simply easy pecan pie that is still indulgent yet 10X better than the one I grew up loving. It may not be exactly the same but when the health benefits outweigh the risks and it tastes this good you can't loose.
Pecans are loaded with healthy fats, can lower "bad cholesterol", have more than 19 vitamins and minerals including A, B, E, Zinc and more, are a good source of fiber and antioxidants. Dates also help lower cholesterol, blood pressure, are high in fiber, boost your metabolism, have vitamins B + many more and are even said to help with hormone production, I am that much sweeter on dates now.
This recipe was originally inspired for my dad on Father's day, as Pecan Pie is his all time favorite, a touch late, yet these can truly be enjoyed anytime. Gerald and I love these indulgent sweets and hope you (and yours) do too!! Watch the video with special effects by Gerald Clark and/or get the recipe below.
