The holidays are around the corner and you need to impress your family and friends with some delicious vegan goodies! Well this pumpkin pie bar is just that. It’s the classic pumpkin pie but in bar form, 100% gluten-free and vegan. Trust me when I tell you that you WON’T feel slumped and with low energy after eating one or even two of these.

Cut the squares as small as you’d like for parties or large holiday dinners. This will also decrease food waste and those that are hesitant to try them may want to try a small piece. However, they will be back for seconds, I can pretty much assure that! These vegan pumpkin pie bars will be the talk of the party.
