Description

Gluten-free pecan cookie bars that are crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Sweet vegan recipe, without refined sugar, only 5 ingredients!


Ingredients

  • ½ cup dried goji berries
  • 1 ½ cups pecan halves
  • ½ cup coconut sugar (or ⅓ cup coconut sugar + 2 ½ tbsp sucanat for a crispier top)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8″ x 6″ tupperware container (or any oven-safe dish of a similar size) with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Process all ingredients in a food processor into a fine sticky crumble. Transfer the mixture into the prepared pan and press down into a flat even layer. Cover with a piece of parchment paper and press it down even more with a flat-bottomed object to compress the mixture as much as possible.
  3. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 25 mins. Remove from oven and cool on a rack. Cut into pieces and enjoy. Store leftovers in a sealed tupperware container.
