Gluten Free Pumpkin Bars {Chai-Spiced!}

Serves 9 to 12

For the Crust:

For the Filling:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream or canned coconut milk

To garnish (optional):

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Line the bottom and sides of a lightly oiled 9 x 9 inch baking pan with a piece of aluminum foil or baking parchment. Allow extra foil to extend over edges of pan to use as a handle after baking.

In a small bowl, stir together crushed Three Bakers Gluten Free Honey Graham Snackers and melted butter. Press mixture in the bottom of prepared baking pan. Cover and refrigerate while preparing filling.

In a mixing bowl, whisk pumpkin, egg, brown sugar, vanilla extract, spices, salt and cream until well blended. Pour the filling over chilled crust. Bake in a preheated 350 F degree oven for 25 – 30 minutes, or until the filling is set in the center. Remove
from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.

When cool, run a knife around the edges of the pan. Lift the pumpkin bars from the pan by holding onto the edges of the aluminum foil or parchment. Place on a cutting board, peel back foil, and cut into 9 or 12 bars, depending on how large you would like them.

Serve plain or garnish with a dab of whipped cream. Whip cold heavy cream with the sugar until stiff peaks form. Top each bar with some whipped cream and a single Honey Graham Snacker, if desired.

If not eating right away, cover and refrigerate bars for up to three days. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
