Pecan Pie Bars

Ingredients

Crumb crust:
* 2 cups Pecans or pecan pieces
* 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
* ½ tsp Stevia
* ¼ tsp Cinnamon
* Dash Sea Salt

Pecan “pie filling”:
* 1 cup Almond Milk
* 8 oz Pitted Dates
* 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
* 2 Tbsp Flax Seeds
* 1 cup Pecans or pecan pieces
* ¼ cup Sorghum Flour
* 1 tsp Baking Powder—Aluminum Free
* 1 tsp Stevia
* ½ tsp Cinnamon
* 1 tsp Vanilla extract
* Dash Sea Salt


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350º .
2. Coat a baking pan with coconut or canola oil.
3. Grind 2 cups of pecans in a food processor. Add to your mixing bowl.
4. Add the rest of the crumb crust ingredients to the bowl and use a sturdy spoon or fork to blend everything together.
5. Spread the mixture over the bottom of your pan.
6. Check your dates one-by-one for pits—there will always be at least one or two left in a package of “pitted dates.”
7. Use the food processor to chop the dates into a puree, and add the dates to the bowl.
8. Add the almond milk and coconut oil to the bowl, and use a sturdy spoon or fork to blend until the dates are not clumped together.
9. Grind the flax seeds to a powder in a coffee grinder, and add to bowl.
10. Add your whole pecans or pieces and all the remaining ingredients to the bowl and blend.
11. Pour over your crumb crust and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until browned.
