Super moist Healthy Pumpkin Bars are the perfect fall treat! One bowl and no flour, butter, or refined sugar. Vegan, gluten free and paleo friendly.


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup creamy almond butter*
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 overripe medium banana
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • Optional: 1/3 cup chocolate chips and/or walnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray an 8x8in square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour into prepared baking dish, smoothing with a spatula.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow bars to cool for at least 20 minutes before slicing. I like to let them rest for 30 minutes for the flavors to come together. They're delicious right out of the fridge!


*Almond butter must be liquidy/drippy. Do not use "hard" almond butter as they will be dry.

STORAGE: Store bars in an air-tight container on the counter for up to three days. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
