Fall in Love with These Paleo Pumpkin bars

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! 

 

Serves: 12

 

Ingredients:

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

 

Instructions:

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.
