Loved this recipe. This was better than any vegan desert (store-bought or homemade) I've had since I really went vegan six months ago; doesn't seem vegan because it's so buttery-tasting. Non-vegan mom loved them and wants me to make again. I added Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips (I'm a chocolate lover), which made the bars taste kind of like chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Next time I will add more pecans, maybe a whole cup (I love nuts, too).
