Pumpkin Bars - To Die For

It's Halloween and I am a complete sucker for two things: candy corn and pumpkin anything. Since I highly doubt I'll be able to modify a candy corn recipe to make it Paleo, I decided to try the next best thing and make some pumpkin bars. Thanks to, I was able to make them Paleo-friendly and absolutely delicious. I found they are even better the next day. Best of all, they are super easy to make.


1/2 cup pumpkin puree (I used Libby's)
1/2 cup agave nectar (this is where I modified the original recipe. I used raw, unfiltered honey instead)
2 eggs
1 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (I used 1/2 teaspoon because I heart cinnamon)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves


In a food processor, combine pumpkin, honey (or agave) and eggs. Pulse for 2 minutes (I'm lazy, so I just let it blend for about 30 seconds, then pulsed it a bit to make sure it was well blended).

Pulse dry ingredients into wet for a full minute, until well combined.

Pour batter into a greased 8x8 baking dish and bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes.
