Pumpkin Chocolate Bars (Vegan and Gluten Free)

Pumpkin Chocolate Bars that are vegan, paleo and gluten free.  My favorite time of year is here!  Do you love fall too?   Pumpkin on all the things!

I am starting with these delectable pumpkin bars.  These healthy bars were inspired by this amazing recipe on Pinch of Yum.

As soon as I saw her recipe, I thought about making a pumpkin version.  It came out great!

Another great thing about these bars is that they contain no re-fined sugars.   They also require no cooking at all! Score!

These dessert bars are very rich and you only need a little bit to feel satisfied. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

    1. I want to verify the quantiity of pecans. The recipe says 2 1/pecans. Is that 2 1/2 cups pecans? Otherwise your instructions to freeze after each layer are very clear, and I plan to make them as soon as I hear back about the pecans.
      1. Hi Karen! Yes, it's 2 1/2 cups pecans. I apologize for the error. I just switched recipe cards and it seems like there are some issues with the new one.
    2. They sound delicious! Can you make them ahead of time? ie the night before you are going to serve them? And if yes, do you leave them in the freezer or fridge overnight?
