Pumpkin Pie Date Bars

Remember when I revealed to you the secret to homemade Lara Bars? Well, take that recipe and make it so basic that you are so consumed by pumpkin spice that you can't remember life before it. A simple list of ingredients, when whirled together in a food processor, creates the most flavorful, filling, and healthy to boot, breakfast or snack on the go!

 Pumpkin Pie Date Bars

  • 1 1/2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1 tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of sea salt
Add the dates, almonds, and pepitas to a food processor and whirl until broken up into small pieces. Add in the pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and salt. Whirl again until the mixture is well combined and sticks together.

Pour the mixture out on to a sheet of parchment paper, form into a ball, then flatten into a 4x8-inch rectangle. Place into the fridge for 30 minutes, then remove, cut into rectangles and wrap each bar individually in plastic wrap.
