Whether it’s the morning and you’re in a rush to get out of the door, or the afternoon and you’re looking for a fast and easy lunch that’s packed full of fats – this will come in handy. These Maple Pecan Fat Bomb Bars provide a delicious “protein bar” style of eating, without having an overabundance of protein – allowing you to fill up with fats as you keep going during the day, and give you enough energy to last until your next meal.
The toasted pecans are what set the flavor apart – that nutty, aromatic, and delicious taste that comes through in each and every bite makes those extra few minutes of time well worth it. They’re slightly sweet, but not overly sweet – complimented by the natural saltiness in the pecans. The coconut gives a wonderful flavor profile through the whole bar, and the almond flour acts as a binder, almost seamlessly integrating itself with the pecans to come through unnoticed.
Lastly, the homemade “maple syrup” will give a delightful maple flavor that coats each and every centimeter of the bar so that you get just a subtle maple flavor with every bite.

Yields 12 servings of Maple Pecan Fat Bomb Bars
- 2 cups Pecan Halves
- 1 cup Almond Flour
- 1/2 cup Golden Flaxseed Meal
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup “Maple Syrup” (Recipe Here)
- 1/4 tsp. Liquid Stevia (~25 drops)
1. Measure out 2 cups of pecan halves and bake for 6-8 minutes at 350F in the oven. Just enough to when they start becoming aromatic.
2. Remove pecans from the oven, then add to a plastic bag. Use a rolling pin to crush them into chunks. It doesn’t matter too much about the consistency, but I like to get relatively large chunks so I can see them in the bars as I eat it.
4. Add the crushed pecans to the bowl and mix together again.
6. Press the dough into a casserole dish. I am using an 11×7 baking dish for this.
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350F, or until the edges are lightly browned.
8. Remove from the oven, allow to partially cool, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (to cut cleanly).
9. Cut into 12 slices and remove using a spatula.
