No-Bake Maple Cinnamon Pecan Bars

These 5-ingredient no-bake pecan bars are the perfect heart-healthy treat to satisfy your sweet tooth after a nutritious meal! 

My favorite kind of dessert is the no bake kind. And I’m OBSESSED with these no-bake pecan bars this season. Made with only five ingredients, they’re incredibly easy to make and totally guilt free. And the best part? They’re heart healthy – meeting the dessert criteria set by the American Heart Association for a heart healthy recipe!

I like to cut these bars into small squares – enough to satisfy a sweet tooth after a meal. However, I have also cut these bars into larger squares (15 per recipe) for a more substantial bar to give away as gifts around the holidays.

What makes these sweet and chewy bars good for the heart? They…

  • Are fiber-rich with rolled oats
  • Have healthy unsaturated fat and protein from pecans
  • Are low in sugar – each bar only has 1 tsp of added sugar per serving
  • Are only 200 calories per bar
