Did you know that April is National Pecan Month? Pecans naturally contain micronutrients, and are a source of a protein. This recipe is perfect for the pecan fan and it is paleo-friendly, too!

Ingredients

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, and grease an 8×8 pan with coconut oil (an 8×6 pan will also work, but they may need to bake for 5-10 minutes longer).

Whisk eggs in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mash the banana.

Add banana, honey, vanilla extract, and almond extract to the bowl with the eggs.

Mix well, with a hand mixer or by whisking. A smoother consistency can be achieved with the hand mixer.

bake1

Add coconut flour, coconut milk, and shredded coconut to the bowl, and mix until all ingredients are blended together.

Divide the pecans, and add half to the mixture. Mix well.

bake2

Spread the batter into the pan (a flexible, silicone spatula works best).

bake3

Sprinkle the top of the bars with pecans, and put into the oven for 20-25 minutes. The top will be a golden brown color when they are ready.

Remove from the oven, and drizzle a little more honey over the top of the bars, then sprinkle with cinnamon.

Do not cut the bars right out of the oven; they will be crumbly. Let cool, cover, and put into the refrigerator. This will help them stick together. After 45 minutes to 1 hour, they will be ready to cut into squares.

Makes 6-8 servings.

    Please give the nutrition information for the number of servings in your recipes. This diabetic needs to know how many carbs.

    Can ground flax seed be used in place of the eggs?
