Feels like its all about pumpkin and pumpkin spice right now and I am completely OKAY with that. Canadian thanksgiving is fast upon us and these vegan pumpkin magic bars would be a great addition to the holidays.
We’ve all made magic bars before but these ones are vegan and have pumpkin puree plus warm spices added.
I love fall and I have been really enjoying my long walks lately. The changing leaf colours have been quite spectacular this year.
All you need to make these bars is a half sheet cookie pan and a couple small bowls for mixing ingredients. No mixer is needed.
First you mix the crust ingredients and pat them down into the lined pan.
Mix the sweetened condensed coconut milk and pumpkin puree and spread over the crust.
Then sprinkle the gluten and dairy free chocolate chips over the pumpkin mixture.
Sprinkle the crushed cashews on top and bake in the oven.Print
