You will enjoy these if you are trying to eat healthier but still need something sweet! These really do give a delicious flavor not unlike pecan pie! (although the crust by itself is not super tasty.) I'm very interested in seeing the nutrition facts... From paleogirlskitchen.com

I just made these and like them a lot. I baked them at a lower temperature, 300 degrees F, in a convection oven, and for a shorter time, 15 minutes, and the crust was a bit darker than I'd like, next time I'll do 10 minutes. The topping is great, not too sweet, and moist and chewy- I also baked that for a lot less time, only 15 minutes at 300, and it is perfect. I have a serious sweet tooth but these are satisfying!
