Cinnamon Blondie Pecan Bars

Keto Recipes > Dessert

I’ve been wanting to work on a simple pecan bars recipe for some time now. While I was experimenting on some recipes recently, I decided to try working on a new brownies recipe. That’s how the cinnamon blondie base initially came about. Just ditch the chocolate and add some cinnamon next time you’re craving a different kind of brownie.

Cinnamon Blondie Pecan Bars

These cinnamon blondie pecan bars remind me of the fall season. The flavor is deliciously spiced with fall flavors like cinnamon and pecans. Although not as thick as traditional brownies, the pecan layer adds a nice crispy and almost caramel like flavor to the top. I really like to enjoy a slice while drinking a glass of Earl Grey tea in the evening.

My family was very pleased with the outcome of these bars, and so they went just as fast as when I made them. The biggest comment I received at how buttery these bars tasted, which I think has to do with the pecan “glaze.” Next time, I think I will double the recipe, and bake this in a larger dish so it will last longer!

I did get a chance to freeze a few pieces to see how they would freeze. And it seems that they freeze well. I only had the chance to keep a few pieces in the freezer for three days, but I think they would freeze well longer.
