Fall is here and pumpkin is everywhere!
With pumpkin visible in every grocery store and coffee shop in America, I had to jump on the pumpkin bandwagon and make my first gluten-free pumpkin dessert of the season. Don’t worry, there will be more!
This gluten-free pumpkin pie bar recipe joins a slew of other gluten-free pumpkin recipes on my dedicated gluten-free blog, including my gluten-free pumpkin squares, gluten-free pumpkin risotto, gluten-free pumpkin pie souffles and pumpkin pie spiced almond flour cookies.
I noticed a bunch of pumpkin pie bar recipes online and really wanted them, however, I couldn’t find one that was gluten-free. Instead of being sad, I decided to see if I could make my own pumpkin pie bar recipe with gluten-free flour. I find it super easy to convert a recipe to be gluten-free with 1-to-1 gluten-free baking flour by Bob’s Red Mill*. The taste and texture is on par with the gluten-full stuff!
If you like pumpkin pie, you’re going to love this recipe. You will feel like you’re eating an actual pumpkin pie. No, you won’t feel like you’re eating a gluten-free pumpkin pie, or that something tastes off with the crust; rather, you will feel like you’re eating real pumpkin pie.
The topping is soft and moist – just like pumpkin pie should be. The bottom offers an almost identical texture and taste to normal pie crust. This is a foolproof pumpkin pie recipe without the hassle of making a gluten-free pie crust!
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I gave up pie long ago. Gluten-free crust does not taste good, nor is it worth the exorbitant effort to make. However, this “crust” is super easy to make. You mix the ingredients and then use your fingers to press down the mixture into the baking pan. There’s no rolling finicky dough here!
I hope you enjoy making this delicious gluten-free dessert recipe. Please keep checking back for more gluten-free pumpkin recipes. I’ve got a few on my radar that I plan to make soon.
