This is a fall favorite of mine that I was introduced to three years ago.  This recipe is amazing! It will stand up to any healthy food critic.  Have some fun!

Gluten-Free, Vegan Pumpkin Bars

Adapted from VegNews

Yields: 20 bars


3 cups gluten-free oat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 cup canned pumpkin

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted, plus more for the pan

1 - 1/2 cups maple syrup (agave also works for a cheaper option, but I enjoy the maple syrup better or a mix of the two)

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 - 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I buy vegan chocolate chips, but buy what works for you)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly oil a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamin.
  3. In a large bowl, mix pumpkin with baking powder. Add oil, maple syrup / agave, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips and stir.
  5. Pour batter evenly into pan. Bake 18 minutes and let cool.

This is super easy and delicious. I hope you enjoy.
