Vegan Pecan Pumpkin Bars

Happy Wednesday! In honor of National Pecan day which was yesterday. I'm sharing a yummy pecan recipe on the blog today. If you follow me on Instagram, I shared these bars a couple of weeks ago, and I honestly forgot to share the recipe on the blog. I'm only human right?! To be honest, these bars were inspired by my original pecan bar recipe. I opened a can of pumpkin puree, and I was looking for recipes to use it with, and I'm so happy that I decided to give this recipe a try. It was such a pleasant twist to a regular pecan bar. I also opted to have larger pecans with this recipe. Because let's face it. Pecans are super yummy. This recipe is super simple to make, and it perfects if you have pecans, and pumpkin puree on hand. 

How did you celebrate National Pecan Day? 

Vegan Pecan Pumpkin Bars 



1 1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Flax Egg (
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds + 4 tablespoons water mixed together)

2 tablespoons coconut oil 

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt

1 tablespoon tapioca starch

2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups pecans roughly chopped

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Line an 8x8inch baking pan and set aside. 
  • In a mixing bowl add the crust ingredients (almond flour, apple pumpkin puree, and maple syrup) and combine.
  • Spoon in the dough on the lined baking pan and create a thin layer. Use a fork and poke a few holes across the crust and bake for 30 minutes until the edges are golden. Remove from the oven and set aside while you prepare the filling. 
  • Reduce the heat to 325°F
  • Add the coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple and salt to a medium-sized saucepan. Whisk together and melt over medium-low heat and simmer. Bring up to a boil for about 30 seconds and then remove from the heat.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the almond milk, starch, vanilla extract, and flax egg until no lumps remain. Pour that mixture into the sugar mixture and whisk to fully combine. 
  • Scatter 1 cup of the chopped pecans over the prepared pie crust. Stir the remaining pecans into the filling. Pour the filling over the crust.
  • Place in the middle of the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for two hours before cutting in to. Enjoy!
