Vegan Pecan Bars

This festive recipe is posting just in time for you to add it to your shopping list for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or whatever else you want to call your up coming holiday food fest.

I was planning on making a Vegan Crumble Top Apple Pie to take with me to my in-law’s Thanksgiving day lunch, but this new recipe is having me reconsider. With a prep time of only about 15 minutes this one is kinda hard to beat…maybe I’ll just make both.

These Vegan Pecan Bars are;

Sweet

Gooey

Crumbly

Mapley

Nutty

&

So easy to make!

I hope you love this recipe, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
