Do you ever come across a recipe with rather low expectations only to have your socks knocked off? I recently got the book, Sweet Potato Power by Ashley Tudor. It’s all about paleo eating, the many benefits of sweet potatoes and has many grain-free recipes. There was a recipe for sweet potato bars that sounded interesting and inspired my creation of these pumpkin bars.
These almond flour pumpkin bars may not be very eye catching, but looks can be deceiving. These bars are amazing. They are so moist and rich and have the perfect pumpkin flavor. They are absolutely the best treat I’ve had in a while. I could’ve easily eaten the whole tray myself. I think that cream cheese frosting or maple whipped cream would be yummy if you wanted to top them with something, but there’s really no need.
