Sugar Free Pecan Pie Bars

This recipe came from a want to try a new ingredient. Recently I bought a sugar free sweetened condensed milk from Mrs. Taste (link is not sponsored). I have also been wanting to do a sugar free version of pecan pie. Pecan pie is one of those desserts that I don’t eat because it is a HUGE calorie bomb. Not to mention not gluten free. Now that I purchased the condensed milk, I wanted to see if I could make a pecan pie bar that wouldn’t completely ruin your sugar and calories for the day. I am starting with a recipe from Taste of Home for Pecan Pie Bars. I am then going to swap out the sugar and flour to make these much lower in carbs. Should be good. Here are the original stats:

Here’s what I changed:

  • I swapped out the sugar for sweetener equivalents
  • I swapped out the sweetened condensed milk for the Mrs. Leche.
  • I replaced the flour with almond and coconut flour to reduce the carbs.
  • I swapped out the toffee for sugar free butterscotch bits to lower the sugar.
  • After all of the swaps, I reduced the servings from 48 to 38, because who doesn’t want bigger bars?

Here are the final stats:

Here is the final recipe:
