No-Bake Vegan Pumpkin Pie Bars

Made with Native Forest Organic Simple Coconut Milk and Let’s Do Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut by @veggieworldrecipes

Looking for a fun holiday treat? You need to make these no-bake healthy pumpkin pie bars!

They’re dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and are so easy to make with Native Forest Organic Simple Coconut Milk.

The crust is made with pecans, Let’s Do Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, dates, and coconut oil. While the filling is made with pumpkin purée, coconut cream, maple syrup, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and spices.

Filling Ingredients:
1 cup canned pumpkin purée
1/2 cup coconut cream from a can of Native Forest Organic Simple Coconut Milk
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2.5 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp each of ginger, nutmeg & salt

Crust Ingredients
1 cup pecans (105g)
½ cup Let’s Do Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (30g)
9 pitted dates (83g)
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
pinch of salt

Note: This recipe makes 9 small pie squares. If you want to make a larger batch for more people, feel free to double the recipe.

To create the crust, add the pecans, shredded coconut, dates, coconut oil, and salt to a food processor. Pulse together until the ingredients are well combined.

Squeeze the crust ingredients in your palm and if it clumps together, you have a good crust. If it doesn’t clump together, add a little bit more coconut oil and a few more dates.

Transfer the crust to a parchment-lined baking tray. I used a 6 x 6 inch pan for this. Press the crust down firmly into the pan using your hands or a spatula.

To create the filling, add the pumpkin, coconut cream, maple, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Blend until creamy and smooth.

Transfer the filling to a pan over medium heat. Cook the mixture for several minutes, until it starts to thicken.

Pour the filling on top of the crust and use a spatula to even out the filling.

Refrigerate overnight or for 6+ hours. Then cut the bars and top them with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!?
