Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Pecan Pie Bars

Ingredients

  • Crust
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs I put the crackers in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin until I get a cup
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, uncooked (can use the minute or instant oat, too)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 sticks or 12 tablespoons or 3/4 cup butter softened

Topping for Crust

  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups pecans

Instructions

Crust Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, rolled oats and brown sugar. Whisk together with wire whisk.
  • Cut in the butter until mixture is like coarse crumbs.
  • Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray and press your crust into the bottom of the dish. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Topping Instructions

  • Beat eggs (I just do this with a wire whisk).
  • Add corn syrup, vanilla and granulated sugar. Mix well. Pour this over your crust. Sprinkle the pecans over the top. Reduce oven heat to 300 and bake 45 to 50 minutes until sets up.
  • Remove from oven and let cool about 10 minutes before cutting. Cut the size you like and Enjoy!

Notes

These bars are rich and contain a lot of sugar and butter but they are very good and you don’t have to eat the whole pan at one time. I refrigerate or keep in a cool place and they keep well.
