MACA ROOT PUMPKIN PIE BARS
- 1 tbsp Organic Maca Root Powder
- 1 cup Almond Meal
- 1 cup Rolled Oats
- ½ cup Shredded Coconut
- 3 tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
- pinch Sea Salt
- 1 15oz Organic Canned Pumpkin
- 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
- 2 Large Eggs (beaten)
- 1 cup Cashew Milk
- 1 tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a food processor, blend the Maca root powder, salt, rolled oats, almond meal & shredded coconut together until just about powdered (don’t blitz fully, leave a little texture if preferred).
Add 1 tbsp of maple syrup and the coconut oil and blend again to bind together.
Press into the lined baking sheet and allow to chill.
Mix the pumpkin puree, eggs, cashew milk, pumpkin pie spice mix and the remaining 2 tbsp of maple syrup together in a bowl and pour over the chilled crust mix.
Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until you have just a slight wobble in the center.
Allow to chill in the fridge to cool, when needed, remove and slice into bars. Enjoy!
