Raw Pecan Squares

I fancied making some of my copy cat Pecan Pie Nakd Bars when I realised I was running out of dates! So I decided to make raw pecan squares using date syrup instead to sweeten and they turned out heavenly 😀 A great mid-afternoon sweet treat for an energy boost.

The ingredients are pretty basic and all you need to put it together is a food processor.

These raw pecan squares are gluten free, dairy free, no-bake and vegan 🙂

Raw Pecan Squares

Serves: 16

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Add the oat flour, ground almonds, pecans and salt to a food processor and blend until you have a fine dry mixture.
  • Melt the coconut oil and add it to the food processor along with the almond butter, date syrup and vanilla. Pulse until well combined.
  • line an 8″ cake tin with parchment paper. Transfer the mixture into the tin and press down with your hands, or using the back of a spoon. Drizzle with more date syrup and top with chopped pecans.
  • Leave to chill in the fridge for a couple of hours, or place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.

*If you don’t have date syrup or can’t get hold of it then you can use any other liquid sweetener (maple syrup, rice syrup, honey…etc)

**You can substitute almond butter for cashew or pecan butter. Peanut butter will be too overpowering

***I would recommend using vanilla paste, but you can substitute for 1 tsp vanilla extract
