Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bars

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bars with grain-free almond flour crust are sweetened with pure maple syrup for a healthier dessert recipe. This easy pumpkin pie bars recipe is a cinch to make and are perfect if you don’t own a pie pan.

Looking for a low-carb option? No sweat! I have included a recipe for  low-carb paleo pumpkin pie bars in this post.

Pumpkin pie, or pumpkin bars? What say you?

Let’s face it – they’re basically identical save for the shape. Same great pumpkin taste, just wearing a different outfit.

If you MUST have a pie shape, check out my Paleo Pumpkin Pie, OR my Paleo Pumpkin Cheesecake.

If, on the other hand, you don’t own a pie pan, or if you’re intimidated by pies, no sweat! You can still enjoy pumpkin pie in bar-form, and for some reason they seem much less complicated than baking an actual pie.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping are a delightful fall treat. Pumpkin pie spice lends warm flavor to these cozy muffins and that topping makes them simply irresistible. 

Election Day.

Today is a nerve-wracking day for everyone. You may feel your fate lives outside of yourself. Is that really true?

Rather than allowing ourselves to get carried away with fear and anxiety, our energy is best served turning inward. 

What can I do to improve my well-being today?

Is there something I can do to help someone?

What is really, truly important when I zoom out?

A few simple questions and some deep breathing may be all it takes to bring ourselves back to peace and to recognize: life is a journey, and it doesn’t need to be controlled.

Surrender isn’t for the weak. It’s for the courageous. When we allow life to be as it is, we’re receptive to its lessons. If we try to resist, that which we resist persists.

So we can take a collective moment, you and me, to take a deep breath, exhale out our need for control, really take a look around and find something beautiful we can appreciate.

You are your own leader.

And streusel topping always improves a muffin. Always. That is a fact.

So if you’re game for another pumpkin treat, if you’re like me and you stress-bake-and-share, I’m here for you.

Let us bake.

So make them both, because: variety 😉

Healthy Pumpkin Cake (Paleo)

Healthy Pumpkin Cake made grain-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and paleo friendly. This easy-to-bake pumpkin cake is warmly-spiced and healthy enough to eat for breakfast.

If I know you at all, I have a sneaking suspicion this is the exact cake you’ve been craving.

Okay, perhaps that was a massive projection, but this is the exact cake I have been craving not only recently, but for several autumns past.

Imagine this: all the colors and flavors of fall jam packed into one healthy pumpkin cake. It comes together lightning fast, and gifts your taste buds an utter explosion of pumpkin flavor.

Have I mentioned it’s healthy? 

Recipe Features:

  • Lower in sugar than a regular cake, but perfectly sweet.
  • Paleo
  • Grain-free, gluten-free
  • Oil-Free
  • Easy to make Vegan (see notes)
  • Refined sugar-free
  • Easy to make sugar-free/low-carb (see notes)
  • Moist, fluffy, delicious

My secret ingredient to keep the cake lower in added sugar?: Ripe banana. The cake is mostly sweetened with one ripe banana (I can’t taste it over the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, but if you have ultra sensitive taste buds, you may be able to).
