Pumpkin Spice Energy Bars

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bar

We love making pumpkin pie, no surprise right? I wanted to try and come up with an alternative to satisfy that pumpkin craving that comes along with the fall season.

I love to make energy bars. They are such a great way to have a sweet treat or snack that’s made with only a few simple ingredients. Plus, they are so easy to make! It’s basically just grind a bunch of ingredients together, pack them into a pan, and cut them into bars.

These pumpkin spice energy bars are such a nice way to incorporate more pumpkin goodness into your usual fall routine.

Instructions
 

  • Add the nuts to a food processor, pulse several times to break them up. Then process, using long pulses, until they're ground into a meal (20-30 seconds).
  • Add all the remaining ingredients except for the pumpkin and process for 60-90 seconds, or until the mixture is sticky and combined, stopping to scrape the sides and bottom a few times as needed.
  • Add the mixture to a bowl and stir together with the pumpkin.
  • Tightly pack into a 8 x 8-inch pan lined with parchment. (This mixture is quite sticky, so placing another piece of parchment on top will help in pressing it into the pan).
  • Place the pan in the freezer for 1 hour to set.
  • After bars have set, remove them from freezer and slice into 18 bars.
  • They can be enjoyed right away, but are much better after having set in the freezer overnight.
  • Store in an airtight container, up to 1 week. We usually enjoy them straight from the freezer, but you may need to let them warm on the counter for a few minutes first.
