Ingredients

Bars

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp buttermilk

Filling

  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

Bars

  • In a large bowl or base of a stand mixer, stir together almond flour, 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, cornstarch, oats, salt, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon.
  • Next, add pumpkin puree, honey, vanilla, butter, eggs, and 1/4 cup buttermilk. Beat on medium-high speed until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • The dough will be very sticky, but the best you can, form it into a large ball and cover with plastic wrap. Place ball of dough in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  • After dough has chilled, use ~2 tbsp of all purpose flour to coat a surface when you can roll out the dough. Place dough on floured surface and sprinkle a small amount of flour over top of dough. Roll until ~1/8 inch thickness. Cut dough into 4 inch by 4 inch squares (will make about 12 squares, if you can't get all the squares cut out of first roll out of the dough, make another ball with remaining dough and roll this out).

Baking and Filling

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking pan with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Place squares of dough on prepared baking sheet (about 6 squares will fit on a 9x13 pan).
  • In a small bowl, mix together all of the filling ingredients until well combined. Place ~1 tbsp of filling into center of square dough cut outs. Fold outsides of square in so that the two sides meet in the middle to make a rectangle. Use your fingers to gently squeeze the two outside edges together, and to press down the outsides of each rectangle.
  • Place rectangle seam side down on prepared baking pan. Brush tops of each bar with buttermilk.
  • Bake for 16-19 minutes, or until tops of bars start to turn golden brown.
