Grain Free Pumpkin Bars

As the weather is turning cooler, pumpkins are ripening in the fields, which makes me think of this recipe. For those of you who are looking for a gluten free, grain free. something sweet to have with your coffee, this has been a fail-proof recipe for me. Try it once, and it will become a favorite. I’m not sure where I found this recipe…so unfortunately I can’t give credit to the creator of this cake. 😦

1 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)

1 cup almond butter

2/3 cup honey

4 eggs (you can try using flax “eggs” instead)

4 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice (Try making your own by combining 2 tsp.ground cinnamon, 1 tsp. ground ginger, 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg and 1/2 tsp. ground cloves)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp baking soda


Preheat oven to 350* F. Grease an 9″ x 13″ glass pan with coconut oil or butter.

Combine all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix well until a smooth batter forms.

Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake at 350*F for approximately 25 minutes, or until the centre is firm and a tester (a toothpick, a sharp small knife or a skewer)  inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Cool on a rack before cutting. You can top this with a whipped topping if you wish.
