Pumpkin Pecan Bars

Pumpkin Pecan Bars

It's no secret this is the season for pumpkin everything. I honestly do not gravitate all things pumpkin typically, but these bars are so delicious and make a perfect after dinner treat without feeling over stuffed. Bring these to your friendsgiving or just keep them in the fridge for those sweet tooth cravings!

2 cups rolled oats

1 cup almond flour

1 can organic pureed pumpkin

1 cup coconut sugar

1 stick grass fed unsalted butter

1 tsp vanilla 

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 large brown egg

1 cup pecans

1 tbsp maple syrup 

 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In one bowl mix 1/2 cup coconut sugar, 1 1/2 cups of your rolled oats with the almond flour. Beat in the stick of butter and pat onto the bottom of your loaf dish to form a crust. Place in the oven for 15 minutes and take out to cool. While your crust is cooling mix the rest of your oats, coconut sugar, pumpkin, egg, vanilla and cinnamon into a bowl. Beat together until smooth. Pour this mixture on top of your crust and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Take bars out of the oven and finish with your pecan topping. Coarsely chop your pecans and mix with the maple syrup. Sprinkle on top and place in the oven for 5-7 minutes. Let your bars cool and devour!
