Hi. My name Lindsay I have two obsessions. Okay more than that, but you get my point. Gluten free or Paleo Bars, Coffee, and anything with pecan pie flavor. Including pecan pie! Haha. What I’m saying is that I am currently needing to embrace my weaknesses. Yes, pour that coffee and let’s make some more bars. Ahem… Vegan Coffee Pecan Pie Bars. The crazy thing is that this is also an EASY paleo recipe. They don’t taste like they’ve been “healthified.” In fact, they taste like LEGIT pecan pie. I do not lie friends.
Now, let me back up the coffee pecan pie bars obsession train and explain. Mmm k?
You probably know that I’m an old blogger. Haha, meaning I’ve be doing this a while. Yes, I used to post workouts and more race update posts when my Kiwi (New Zealand) husband was a pro athlete. Which how the whole homemade bar gluten free obsession began. FUELING that man! But oh me oh my how things have changed. IN A GOOD WAY! Less is more folks. And just like what I did to this pecan pie bars recipe, things transformed and simplified. A big shift with a whole new (and improved) flavor (of life) was formed. Ohhhh, deep thoughts here ya’ll.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m okay with change. In fact, it’s done us WONDERS to actually surrender and embrace it. New careers, new focus, new health goals, new US! We are …. CONTENT and it feels so good! I could ramble on about that, and probably will in a later post, but today we chatting about a different transformation… dun dun dun dun (that’s suppose to be s drumroll sound).
those classic PECAN PIE bars transformed into EASY PEASY VEGAN COFFEE PECAN PIE BARS…. a Paleo recipe too! Phew! That’s one epic transformation. All because I said yes, I want to change things up, perk it up, pecan it up? LOL!
Simplify, pecan bars? How so? Oh glad you asked!
A new paleo nut flour blend by Pamela’s! Totally obsessed! Have I said the word obsessed enough? Yea, that’s pretty much my feeling.
Pamela’s Nut-Flour Blend is unique blend of Almonds, Coconut, Pecans, and Walnuts. So it adds an even more nutty taste to these pecan pie bars. Not to mention no additives, no added sugar, and non -gmo. It’s like the Healthiest of Healthy flour blends! I also love that this nut flour blend so super fine and doesn’t clump. That makes my paleo recipe baking heart HAPPY and at ease. Oh, and guess what? This nut flour is going to be our base today. All we have left to do is make the secret vegan filling and coffee coating.
You read that right. 3 STEP PROCESS for a simple Coffee Pecan Pie Bar recipe. Tried and tested 3 x just for my own good measure. Let’s just say we had 3 different kinds of vegan/paleo pecan pie bars over the course of a week. A good problem if you ask me. I chose to post the EASIEST and TASTIEST version for you! Cool?
You know I love making QUICK step by step process recipes, just to make things simple for you. Plus this paleo recipe just feeds our dessert/snack bar obsession.
Ahh, my job is done!
Okay, here’s what makes these coffee pecan pie bars super simple and paleo/vegan. It’s really just a few real food ingredients.
- Coffee (instant)
- Coconut oil
- Nut flour blend
- Maple Syrup
- A wee bit of almond or coconut milk
- A just a spoonful of an extra starch (Like tapioca flour or potato starch, etc.)
The 3 steps? Well, it’s simple. Bake the crust. Blend and layer on the coffee/pecan filling.
That ooey gooey topping below would be the coffee/date filling before you bake! OH MY!
Bake Again. DEVOUR! Oh, maybe the 4th step should be a must too. Right? Haha!
Let’s just make these already, mmm k?
Nutrition for Smaller Sliced Bar:
*If you are watching sugar, add less maple syrup and dates to the filling*
