Healthy Pecan Pie Bars

Thanksgiving is almost here, and we’ve got pie on the mind! While we love indulging in our favorite treats during the holidays, we always appreciate a healthier alternative—as long as it doesn’t skimp on great taste! These pecan pie bars are the perfect option: They’re easier to make than a traditional pie and will satisfy your sweet tooth without using refined sugars or white flour. Pecan pie all month long? Yes, please!
