These Paleo Vegan Frosted Pumpkin Bars are simple to make and so delicious! Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and naturally sweetened.
I have two versions of these bars up already, Carrot Cake and Apple Cinnamon, and I knew I wanted to do a pumpkin version. Just a few ingredient changes and they turned out great.
Vegan and Egg Free
These contain no dairy or eggs making them vegan or good if you are working around an egg allergy. Just be sure to use butter flavored coconut oil in place of the ghee in the frosting to keep them vegan.
Easy Dairy Free Frosting
The frosting is made with coconut butter which is sometimes called coconut manna. It’s unsweetened coconut flakes blended until smooth and can be found by the nut butters at the store and of course online. Nothing can really replace it. I get asked if butter can be used- no, that’s so different. It makes the best frosting and is perfectly sweetened with the maple syrup.
Pumpkin Spice vs Chai Spice
Chai spice is used in these bars because it was requested by a reader. I have never had chai, but I found a mix on Amazon and love the warm flavors of it. I will say it’s different having a pumpkin recipe without pumpkin spice so definitely feel free to use pumpkin pie spice if that is what you know and love. Or change it up and try it with chai. It’s still so good of course, just a little different.
I know you will love these paleo vegan frosted pumpkin bars. They have the best texture and the frosting makes them extra tasty.
