Ready to welcome Fall, but not ruin your keto? Then you need my new creation, Pumpkin Spice Cookie Bars!
After trying a recipe I found on Pinterest, and having it fail MISERABLY, I realized I needed to just make my own! I took my basic cookie bar recipe and gave it the fall treatment!
They hold together and are NOT grainy! They don’t fall apart or feel like you’re eating a block of coconut oil. They would easily be mistaken for perfectly normal cookies.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your pumpkin puree and get baking!
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIE BARS:
- Mix your dry ingredients.
2. Microwave the butter and oil to melt them, make sure your eggs are room temperature, and mix all your wet ingredients.
3. Chop your pecans! You don’t have to use them, but they are delicious.
4. Gather your spice-ifying ingredients.
5. Add wet to dry, then fold in the chocolate and nuts!
6. Dump it into the pan and smooth it with a spatula. It doesn’t spread like a traditional batter, so make it as even as you can get it.
7. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until it’s golden brown on the edges and slightly pulling away. When you touch the middle, it should bounce back and not leave a dent.
8. Let it cool completely, dump it upside down on a cutting board, and it into 15 even pieces.
