Paleo Pumpkin Bars (Lurong approved)

pumpkin bars

The number one thing I love about fall is pumpkin everything!  I was playing around in the kitchen the other day and decided to wing a pumpkin bar attempt.  Most baking in the paleo sphere is done with almond flour and I’ve told you guys that I am trying to do most of my baking with coconut flour instead.  I bought the cookbook Primal Cravings for that very reason.  All of their baking is done without almond flour.  I think I’ve made their brownie recipe like 100 time in the past month because it is amazing!!!!  However, I have been refraining from posting or talking about it because Lurong folks can’t have chocolate. ;(  So, I thought to myself how great the recipe would be as a pumpkin bar!  The recipe was born….and as long you don’t eat the entire pan at once and switch out butter for coconut oil, it is Lurong approved. 😉   You guys don’t have much longer!

Paleo Pumpkin bars:

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp tapioca flour

3 Tbsp coconut flour

1 stick grassfed butter (or 1/2 cup coconut oil)

1/2 cup coconut sugar

1 cup pumpkin puree

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ginger

1/4 tsp nutmeg

pinch of cardamom

pinch of cloves

(you could use already formed pumpkin pie spice if you have it on hand)

pecans for garnish

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

Melt the sugar and butter together to combine. Add the vanilla and salt.  Whisk in the eggs.  Add all the dry ingredients.  Pour into a greased 8×8 pan and cook for about 25-30 minutes until set up and not jiggling anymore.  Let cool before cutting and serving.  I often like a texture difference, so I cut them into 2-bite squares and plop a pecan on top!
