Description

Healthy, low carb pumpkin protein bars that are easy to make, no bake and contain Paleo and Vegan ingredients.


Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Combine almond butter, pumpkin puree, melted cacao butter, honey and vanilla in a medium sized bowl.  Using a spatula, mix until smooth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  (Dough should be almost play-dough like.)
  3. Place dough in a lined 8" x 4" baking pan and firmly press down using a spatula.
  4. Refrigerate for an hour, or until set.
  5. Remove from fridge and cut into 8 equal pieces.
  6. Optional: top with melted chocolate, chopped pumpkin seeds and bee pollen.
  7. Store in fridge or freezer.

Notes

*I melted the cacao butter over the stove top in a small sauce pan.  Then used that pan to mix together the ingredients.

**Collagen peptides are a great substitution if you don't like the taste of pea protein.  However, the batter will be thinner and the bars will need to be placed in the freezer to set.  Substituting with collagen gives these bars a caramel like texture (that is absolutely amazing).  Please note, if you use collagen these bars will not be Vegan.
