You will love these Pumpkin Bars.  When you serve these you are guaranteed oooh’s and ahh’s.

We used our Diabetic Kitchen Nut Butter Cookie Mix as our base.  What!  Yes, we did. Instead of butter we use Farmers Market Organic Pumpkin and a few other ingredients to create a decadent, chewy, pumpkin treat.

Our official taste testers (aka grandchildren) could not get enough of these pumpkin bars. Well if truth be told neither could their grandfather!

Here’s the scoop.

You will use one can of Diabetic Kitchen Nut Butter Cookie Mix with some almond flour, coconut flour, pumpkin, eggs and some pumpkin pie spice.  That’s it.  No, you don’t use any nut butter even though you are using the Nut Butter Cookie Mix.

Prepare your pan just like you do for the Diabetic Kitchen brownie mix.  Line it with parchment paper so that you can lift your bars right out of the pan.  That makes it very easy to cut with your pizza cutter.  This is a thick batter so be sure to spread it to the corners.

STORAGE SUGGESTIONS:
Store on a plate on the counter covered with a CLOTH towel. They will be great for at least 3-4 days stored this way if they last that long. You can move them to the refrigerator at this point for longer storage.

Do not store in a plastic container unless you are putting them in the refrigerator.
I do make note in the recipe the brands of some products that I used because that is what I use in our kitchen to get the results I am looking for.  It doesn’t mean that whatever brand you are using in your kitchen will not work.

  1. These were very good! It definitely does have a bit of a monk fruit sugar taste still if you eat it by itself, but we had a scoop of low carb ice cream with it and sprinkled a bit of nutmeg on top and it masked that flavor very well. Overall, I would totally make these again. Next time, I will probably make some sugar free whipped cream to go with this, it would probably taste just as good as with the ice cream.

    Thanks for the recipe!
