Pumpkin Bread Bars

Perfect fall treats! Serve warm or cold, eat them as dessert or breakfast or a snack on the go. Inspired by Elana’s Pantry, these are delicious pumpkin ‘bread bars’! I call these pumpkin bread bars, because they are a sort of cross between bread and bars. I used raisins, but you could use chocolate chips (and or chopped nuts) as an other yummy variation! 🙂Blog pumpkinpaleobread3 blog pumpkinpaleobread2 Blog pumpkinpaleobread1


  • ⅓ cup coconut flour (1/3 cup is NOT a typo 🙂 – coconut flour is very different than wheat)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh roasted pumpkin or winter squash (I used acorn squash – excellent)
  • ⅓ cup honey or agave syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup raisins or chocolate chunks


  1. In a food processor, combine dry ingredients
  2. Pulse in eggs, pumpkin, honey and oil until well combined
  3. Stir in raisins or chocolate chips by hand
  4. Transfer batter to an 8 x 8 inch baking dish or a pie dish
  5. Bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes
  6. Cool and serve

      Hi Steph! Well, good question! It would be interesting and tasty I’m sure, not very sweet though. You could use a little agave syrup (which is low glycemic) or coconut palm sugar (also low glycemic) or mashed bananas as a totally natural fruit sweetener (though bananas are pretty high glycemic).Try it and let us know! Always looking for new ideas on what works. 🙂

    Can whole wheat flour be used instead of coconut flour and if so how much? Can i also use can pumpkin instead of fresh roasted pumpkin?

    HI Kelsey, yes you could definitely use almond flour instead! I don’t know exact conversion, but I would start with 1/2 cup almond flour and increase till you get the consistency in the batter you want! Might be as much as 3/4 cup. Elana’s Pantry does a lot with almond flour: http://elanaspantry.com/
    Good luck! Let us know how it turns out! 🙂
