Vegan Salted Caramel Pecan Bars

Vegan Salted Caramel Pecan Bars

PicMonkey CollageIt’s a rare day that I have brown rice syrup, dark brown sugar, and a whole bunch of pecans lying around in the pantry. Combining their delicious forces, I whipped up VeganCookiesInvadeYourCookieJar‘s caramel pecan bars. I tried this recipe out before with great results. This time around I spread the buttery crust and sticky caramel into a longer pan, making thinner more brittle-ish bars. I also threw in some almonds that were laying around.
