Ingredients

Wet
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Dry
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 5 tablespoons protein powder
  • 3 tablespoons Unflavored Natural Calm supplement – or an equal amount of protein powder
  • ¼ cup ground or milled flax seed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Drizzle

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and line an baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine wet ingredients in a large bowl with a hand or stand mixer.
  3. Whisk dry ingredients in a small bowl. Once incorporated, add to the wet mix and mix until smooth. Allow to sit for 1-2 minutes to thicken up.
  4. Scoop approximately ? cup at a time into your hand. Shape into a bar and place on prepared baking sheet. You can also shape the bars on the baking sheet, I found that was easiest.
  5. Bake bars for 22-25 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean, the bottoms of the bars or golden, and the tops are cracking slightly.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
