Pumpkin Pie Bars


Stop scrolling through hundreds of pumpkin recipes for the fall. This is the only one you need. These bars are full of pumpkin flavor and so healthy that you don’t have to unbutton your pants while eating them!!! Now that’s my kind of pumpkin pie.


Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Added Sugar Free, Paleo



The crust tastes like a pumpkin sugar cookie by itself. It is the perfect base!


I used honey as my sweetener for these bars. I love baking with honey because a little goes a long way! These bars have a total of 3 tbsp. Thats all they need! My favorite brand of honey is Glory Bee.

Notes

*NOTE: This recipe only makes a small batch. I used a loaf pan.
*TO DOUBLE: To make a full batch (you’re going to wish you had), double the recipe and use a 9×9 baking dish. Cook crust for 10 minutes and filling for 45 minutes instead. 

I know that you already have all of these ingredients on hand… so what are you waiting for!!! Head to the kitchen, make this fall treat for your family and friends, and let me know what ya think!!!
