Toffee Bars

I am SUCH a foodie! Although fitness is extremely important to me, so is quality of life and self care. I LOVE to enjoy a well earned treat, after a week of consistent workouts, and Shakeology while keeping with my Portion Fix!

This delicious dessert taste a lot like pie, and would pair well with vanilla ice cream.

I always try to work hard, while not forgetting to love on myself with SWEET rewards.

Ingredients:

Shortbread Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sweetener of your choice (Swerve or other brand)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter chilled and cut into small pieces

Topping:

  • ¾ cup granulated sweetener of choice  (Swerve or other brand)
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar of choice (Swerve or other brand)
  • 3 cups pecans whole or pieces or a mix

Instructions:

Shortbread Crust:

Preheat oven to 325


  • Prepare a square baking pan by lightly coating with a thin layer of butter or cooking spray.
  • Combine flour, powdered sweetener, and salt with a hand held mixer or processor.
  • Then add in with butter pieces, mix until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Press into baking pan.
  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove and let cool while preparing topping.

Topping:

  • In a medium sauce pan, mix butter with sugar then stir until totally dissolved.
  • Bring to a boil and cook until amber in color.
  • Remove from heat then add in vanilla extract and salt until it seems to be separating in texture, then add in powdered sugar to bring the mixture back together.
  • Add pecans on top of the Shortbread crust that you made earlier…it should be cooled by now.
  • Pour the toffee mixture on top of the pecans,
  • Then bake for another 15 minutes, until it darkens on top and thickens.
  • Let it cool before cutting.

Enjoy!

There’s enough for the whole family!
