Pumpkin Pudding Bars- Grain Free/Gluten Free

gluten free pumpkin pudding bars


This simple seasonal pumpkin pudding bar snack can be made quickly and enjoyed by all. I called this recipe pumpkin pudding bars because they can be cut nicely into firm bars, yet have the consistency of a creamy pudding-like texture.

This tasty dessert will satisfy anyone's pumpkin craving.
 Let's face it who isn't craving pumpkin this time of the year?  ! It seems to be everywhere right now.

In addition, this is a perfect healthy snack for kids.
It's not too sweet, can transport easily in a lunchbox, and makes a perfect after school snack that provides some protein and nutrients. A little whipped cream or whipped coconut cream topping would make it divine.

This recipe is grain free, gluten free, nut free and dairy free.

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes tops
Cook Time: 30-35 minutes
Note: I always use whole food ingredients ( but the recipes will work with regular sugar and GF flour)

Ingredients: 
2 cups of pumpkin puree or ( 1 can of pumpkin )
1/2 cup of coconut sugar ( get in the health food store- it looks and acts like brown sugar but is lower in carbs and higher in fiber  and more nutritious)
4 large eggs, beaten
2 Tablespoons coconut flour ( or any gluten free flour)
2 Tablespoons coconut or almond milk ( Add if using coconut flour which needs extra liquid, omit for reg GF flour)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice ( or if you don't have any make your own  - easy pumpkin pie spice mix  )
Optional: Add plenty of chocolate chips if you must! ( I did)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 
In a medium bowl, (using a large spoon), cream the pumpkin and coconut sugar until smooth. Add the beaten eggs, almond milk or coconut milk and mix well. Then add the spices and coconut flour. Mix well, smashing any lumps that form if you are using the coconut flour..
Line a brownie pan with parchment paper and pour in batter. Bake for about 30-40 minutes until set , but not overdone,. Cool on wire racks. Cut into bars.
