• Salted Maple Glazed Pecan Granola Nut Bars

    Sweet and salty nut bar with a maple glazed base, great for breakfast, snacks and on the go.

    Pecans are probably my favourite type of nut, well its a tie between walnuts and pecans. Pecans tend to have a softer texture whereas walnuts are dryer but both just as tasty. This recipe focuses on pecan nuts, but with a combination of almonds, cashews and sunflower seeds, but mainly pecans and a glaze of sweet and salty maple syrup.For years I’ve eaten granola bars and now I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a granola bar, even though I love them, they are full of refined sugars and hidden carbs, so aren’t on the menu for me. But not anymore! These have no hidden carbs are grain, dairy, gluten and refined sugar-free.

    These last a couple of weeks (if they are eaten by then), wrapped in baking parchment in an airtight box, stored at room temperature or in the fridge. Enjoy, Amy
