20 Pumpkin-Perfect Bars to Bake This Fall

You’re in for a treat — a pumpkin-y, pecan-topped, occasionally gluten-free treat. Or 20. We’ve done our homework this season to give you the scoop on butternut squash, candy corn, and festive Halloween goodies. We now present the ultimate fall favorite: 20 irresistible ways to bake pumpkin into a bar. All have pumpkin. Some have pecans, cream cheese frosting and chocolate — some are even gluten, grain or egg-free! Take a look, take a bite. And save us one or two…

1. Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Blondies: Your favorite childhood cookie gets a fall makeover. Pumpkin, snickerdoodled? Sounds like a flavor phenomenon you can’t miss. (via Averie Cooks)

2. Chocolate Pecan Pie Pumpkin Blondie Bars: These three flavors — chocolate, pecan and pumpkin — are some of fall’s very best in our opinion. Try this idea in pie form too — with bourbon. (via Yummy Crumble)

3. Pumpkin Pecan Pie Bars: We call this one pecan pie… as bar… with pumpkin. (via Buns in My Oven)

4. Grain-Free Almond Butter Pumpkin Bars: This recipe is so easy and has no flour or grain. It’s just almond butter and pumpkin holding it all together. (via The Roasted Root)

8. Gluten-Free Pumpkin Protein Oat Bars: Serve these bars with applesauce for a totally healthy snack. (via Angie’s Recipes)

9. Pumpkin Brownies: All we did to create these babies was combine two of the better things in life: Pumpkin and chocolate. It worked. (via Brit + Co)

10. Gingerbread Pumpkin Pretzel Protein Bars: These vegan bars don’t hold back on yummy components — only those that come from animals. (via Marfig’s Munchies)

11. Chocolatey Pumpkin Breakfast Bars: Dessert just got healthier, and breakfast — yummier. (via Yeah…immaeatthat)

12. Gluten-Free Pumpkin 7-Layer Bars: We’re fans of combining all we can into our baking bars. See these gooey butter bar examples for more ideas. (via Fearless Dining)
