When I was a kid one of my all time favourite treats was a butter tart. Flaky pastry, creamy, buttery and beyond sweet filling. With or without raisins I just loved them. I guess you’re wondering WHY I am blathering on about butter tarts when clearly these are more like pecan pie. Well I don’t know what to tell you, except that the creamy buttery sweetness that’s in those butter tarts also reside in these bars. Good story right?
I love pecans but I also adore walnuts. Walnuts are the health nut. They look like little brains, high in good fats (omegas), protein and antioxidants and may even improve brain and heart health. Pretty powerful nut if you ask me. That is why even though pecans usually get to shine in this type of dessert I moved them to the side for my new PECAN CHOCOLATE CHAI GRANOLA (coming soon)and focused on walnuts.
Store these vegan bars in the fridge and TRY not to eat them all at once.
