Pumpkin Bars

In honor of fall, I spent several days last week in a pumpkin “trance,” experimenting with various iterations of gluten free baked goods containing pumpkin.

At first, I had terrible failures. Suffice it to say that my pumpkin cookies and pumpkin scones while edible, were not at all blog worthy. Next, I decided to make pumpkin loaves –while they didn’t look too pretty, they were delicious. Finally, I made these gluten free pumpkin bars, which my 10 year old declared “addictive.”  Every day last week, he brought our neighbor boys (Cole and Carson) over after school for a fix. I hope you enjoy these gluten free pumpkin bars as much as the boys did.

If you’re not in the mood for a bar, try these gluten free Pumpkin Pie Muffins.

    Came out just as pictured, moist and coloured. Yummy!
    Also still don’t have a 8×8 cooking tray. Damn.. I used a tart tray, and sliced them up afterwards.
    Thank you!

    I made four pumpkin recipes from you today (The pumpkin bread, the paleo pumpkin bar with chocolate, this pumpkin bar, and the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies). Before I made the pumpkin pie and that is still my favourite :-).
