Would you believe that a handful of pecans (one ounce) contains only 4 grams of carbohydrates? Yup, pecans are so good for us that we can eat them as a snack or use them to top our salads, crust our fish, chicken, and pork, and even add 'em to our desserts, like these Pecan Pear Squares...guilt-free!
What You'll Need:
cups all-purpose flour*
1 cup packed light brown sugar
cup (1/2 stick) light butter, softened
1 (15-ounce) can pears in light syrup, chopped, juice reserved
cup egg substitute
1 teaspoon vanilla extract*
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chopped pecans
What To Do:
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.*
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the flour, brown sugar, butter, reserved pear juice, egg substitute, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt for 2 minutes, or until smooth. Stir in the chopped pears then pour the mixture into the baking dish; top with the chopped pecans.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely then cut into squares and serve, or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
