Indulge this holiday season with these healthy and gluten free Flourless Pumpkin Bars! So moist and comforting, this easy fall treat is perfectly spiced and finished with a sweet maple glaze.
Servings: 9 bars
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup almond butter creamy
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon coconut sugar or use cane sugar or brown sugar
- 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
for the glaze:
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper, leaving a 1" overhang for easy removal; set aside.
Next, whisk the pumpkin, egg, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Then, add the sugar, pumpkin spice spice and baking soda and stir until the mixture it smooth.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Place it into the oven and bake the bars for 30-35 minutes or until the center has set.
Remove them from the oven and transfer the dish onto a cooling rack. Let the bars cool completely before removing them; for faster cooling, transfer the dish to the refrigerator.
Before serving, make the maple glaze: whisk maple syrup and powdered sugar together, then drizzle it over the bars.
