Vegan Pecan Pie Brownies

Vegan Pecan Pie Brownies

Made with Native Forest Organic Simple Coconut Milk by @feastingonfruit

This holiday season, skip the pecan pie and make these Vegan Pecan Pie Brownies instead!

These brownie beauties have a more-cakey-than-fudgy-but-still-super-chocolatey base and a sweet-sticky caramel pecan pie topping.

The main ingredient in these bars is Native Forest Organic Simple Coconut Milk to keep things deliciously rich and dairy-free!

These brownies are fairly easy to make and are vegan, gluten-free, egg-free and dairy-free for all to enjoy this holiday season!

We'll combine the wet ingredients with the dry to form a thick batter and then bake it. While the brownies are cooling, we'll make the ooey-gooey pecan pie topping! Finally, we'll spread the pecan layer over top of the brownie layer and bake until set! Now, let cool and slice into perfect bite sized bars!
