Paleo Pumpkin Squares

Pumpkin Squares

I had to remake my Healthy Paleo Pumpkin Cookies for a couple of people that were having trouble with it. Since I was only using a portion of the can of pumpkin puree I decided to come up with another treat. These are a cross between a quick bread and a brownie. We tend to like less sweet treats in my family so feel free to up the honey if you have a real sweet tooth.

Paleo Pumpkin Squares

1 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup raw honey
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
4 pastured eggs
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate (I used this one)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix your wet ingredients in a bowl. Mix the dry ingredients minus the chocolate in a separate small bowl. Add the dry to the wet and combine well. Stir in the chocolate chunks, then let sit for 5 minutes or so to let the coconut flour absorb the moisture. Pour into a greased 8×8 glass baking dish. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes, then slice and serve.

    I’m wondering if an egg substitute would work in this recipe?

      You could try using bananas and applesauce. Each egg is equivalent to 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 of a banana. If you try it with those, please let me know how it turns out :)
