PECAN SUGAR SQUARES


INGREDIENTS:


CRUST

1 ¼ cup coconut flour

¼ cup maple syrup

½ cup ghee or coconut oil, softened


PECAN FILLING

½ cup ghee or coconut oil, melted

½ cup coconut sugar

1/3 cup maple syrup

4 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp sea salt

2 cup pecan halves

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Stir together all ingredients for the crust in a large bowl. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until the edges are golden, then cool for 10 minutes.
  • While the crust is cooking, whisk together ghee and coconut sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until smooth and creamy.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in maple syrup, vanilla extract, and sea salt.
  • In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk.
  • Pour the heated filling mixture into the eggs slowly while continuously whisking so the eggs don’t cook.
  • Stir in pecans, then pour the whole thing over the crust.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes until the filling is set.
  • Cool for 1 hour, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Slice into 16 squares, and serve.
