Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bar

Tis the season of pumpkin flavoured everything and time to be basic as f*ck.

I’ve never been big on pumpkin, so I was a bit hesitant to test out this beauty but I was willing to take one for the HIH fam. I am so happy that I did (as is my dad). It’s quick, paleo-friendly, delicious and 100% rookie proof.

Here’s what you need:

  • ¾ cup creamy almond butter

  • ½ cup pumpkin puree

  • 1 overripe medium banana

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • ⅓ cup chocolate chips and/or walnuts, optional

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray an 8x8in square baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Place almond butter, pumpkin, banana, maple syrup, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Stir until well-combined.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, stirring until smooth.

  4. Pour into prepared baking dish, smoothing with a spatula. Bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
