Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie Bars

Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie Bar

Sometimes in the food blogging world, you hit the jackpot with a new recipe…and that is exactly what I did with this one, definitely one of my proudest moments (forget graduation, getting married, having kids, etc – – ha ha :).  Okay okay, I am obviously exaggerating, but seriously only a little bit.  These bars are GOOD, and addictive, and decadent, and indulgent, and everything you could possible want from a dessert plus more.

If you are a nay sayer and think that you can’t make decadent dessert without using refined flour, sugar, and eggs, I double dare you to make these and try them.  I can pretty much guarantee you will be converted to my side :)!

If you are like me and already believe that simple whole foods can be every bit as decadent as traditional desserts than you are in for a treat today.  These Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie Bars are insanely delicious (have I mentioned that yet), grain free, gluten free, dairy free, made with natural sweeteners, and vegan!  Yes, it is to good to be true, but I assure you it is – sometimes you can get the best of both worlds.
