Pumpkin Crumble Bars

Ready for something delicious, that targets that sweet craving but doesn’t send you on a roller coaster with a huge sugar rush?!

I love this with my coffee!

You can make this recipe keto style or paleo, depending on the sweetener you use!

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin purée
  • Sweetener of choice {for paleo: 1/3 cup real maple syrup. For keto: 1/4 cup erythritol…I like Swerve or Truvia}
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk alternative {count milk or almond}
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil OR butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar. Mix these in a separate little bowl {will be fizzy!}

Crumble topping:

  • 1/2 cup of chopped almonds or pecans
  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp coconut sugar OR 1 Tbsp erythritol
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil OR butter, melted

DIRECTIONS
