Pecan Pie Bars

Prep time

Total time
50 mins



  • 9 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 6 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1.5 cups GF all-purpose flour 
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup honey (I used Manuka honey)
  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups (6 oz) chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line pan with parchment paper. I used an 8x8 inch glass pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar. Add the GF all-purpose flour and salt. Mix together.
  3. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the lined pan. You can use your hands or a spoon. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the crust has set and the edges have slightly browned. 
  4. While the crust is baking, make the filling. In a large saucepan, combine the butter, honey, brown sugar, milk, pure vanilla extract, and salt. Cook on medium high heat and stir regularly. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add chopped pecans. Mix together. 
  5. Remove the crust from the oven. Pour the hot filling over the warm crust. Put back in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the top is bubbling and becomes a caramel color. 
  6. Let the pecan pie bars cool before lifting them out from the pan and cutting into them. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days.
