Add this recipe to your list for the Thanksgiving baking. These bars are grain-free, sugar-free (well, aside from the maple syrup!) and are a great alternative to pumpkin pie!
¾ cup creamy almond butter
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 overripe medium banana
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
⅓ cup chocolate chips and/or walnuts, optional
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an 8x8in square baking dish with cooking spray.
Place almond butter, pumpkin, banana, maple syrup, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir until well-combined.
Add the rest of the ingredients, stirring until smooth.
Pour into prepared baking dish, smoothing with a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
