Light Pumpkin Pie Bars

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 cup Graham cracker crumbs

  • 4 tablespoons refined coconut oil (melted)

Filling:

  • 1 15-oz can pure pumpkin puree (we used “Libby’s”)

  • ⅔ cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8x8-inch or 9x9-inch square baking dish with parchment paper or foil, leaving a 1-2 inch overhang around the sides.

  2. Mix the crust ingredients together in a medium bowl with a fork. Press the Graham crumb mixture evenly into the bottom of the baking dish, pressing firmly with your fingers. 

  3. Bake the crust for 6-8 minutes or until lightly golden brown and fragrant. Remove from the oven. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.

  4. In a large bowl whisk the filling ingredients together. You can also use a handheld or stand mixer. Pour the filling into the cooled crust.

  5. Return to the oven and bake for 25-28 minutes until the center is just set (does not jiggle when you move the dish). Set aside to cool to room temperature on a baking rack.

  6. To slice: remove the bars from the pan using the paper or foil overhang and place on a cutting board.

  7. Use a sharp knife to cut 16 even squares, wiping the knife between each cut to ensure clean lines. Refrigerate before serving.

  8. Serve with whipped cream, ice cream, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon and icing sugar (macros not included.) Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Notes:

  1. You can also use unrefined coconut oil, although your crust will have a mild coconut flavor.

  2. You can also use regular nonfat milk instead of almond milk (macros: 16.5C/2P/4.5F per bar).
