Description

These ooey gooey pecan bars are a cross between pecan pie and a chocolate chip cookie!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup flour (I think a gluten free blend would be fine)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spray an 8×8 baking pan with non-stick spray.
  3. Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer, whatever you have) beat together to brown sugar and butter until combined.
  4. Beat in the vanilla, maple syrup, and egg, until combined.
  5. Add in the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir by hand.
  6. Once it’s well mixed, stir in the pecans and chocolate chips.
  7. Press into the pan and bake for 15-20 minutes, until it begins to brown.
