Ingredients
  • CRUMBLE BARS:
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour, sifted
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ⅓ cup organic pumpkin puree (Make sure pumpkin is the only ingredient. I bought can at Trader Joes).
  • ⅓ cup organic maple syrup
  • 3½ Tbsp unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk (I used almond milk)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp gluten free organic vanilla extract (can use regular vanilla extract)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, mixed in a separate pinch bowl (will be very fizzy at first)
  • CRUMBLY TOPPING:
  • ⅓ cup almond meal (I bought mine at Trader Joes)
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened organic coconut flakes
  • 2½ Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 Tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven at 350 F, and grease or oil an 8x8 pan (You can double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 pan like I did).
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine sifted coconut flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, sea salt. Mix together thoroughly. Set aside.
  3. In a seperate large mixing bowl combine 2 beaten eggs, almond or coconut milk, pumpkin puree, melted coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Mix together until combined.
  4. In a little pinch bowl, combine the baking soda and apple cider vinegar, let fizz. Once it stops fizzing, add it to the egg mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Add coconut flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir until combined.
  6. Pour and spread batter into greased 8 x 8 pan, and set aside. It will be very watery but don't worry.
  7. In a small mixing bowl combine all the crumble topping ingredients, adding them melted coconut oil last. Use a fork to mix topping until a paste forms.
  8. Take the crumble topping and scatter chunks of crumble topping all over the top of the pumpkin batter in the pan.
  9. Bake at 350 F for 28 to 30 minutes or until top is browned, and toothpick or knife comes out of center clean. I baked my 9 x 13 pan for 28 minutes.
  10. Cool completely, then cover and refrigerate for one hour or longer (this sets the pumpkin layer).
  11. Cut into bars and serve.
