Hey there luvs!
To help get us through the week we decided something pumpkin would be great. You’re excited, right? You better be.
In particular pumpkin blondies! A mix of a brownie and a bar in a way 🙂
Flourless pumpkin chia seed blondies that are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, egg-free, vegan, soy-free and low in sugar.
These pumpkin chia seed blondies make these chilly fall days a little brighter.
Oh and did we mention that they’re healthy? Yes, you can totally eat them any time of the day! Perfect for getting you through the week!
We bet you can guess what they are made from?
They are made of course with plantains to make them flourless. If you can’t have plantains or can’t find them – follow our chocolate chip pumpkin blondies, and if you want to make them grain free you can try using almond flour instead of amaranth (you might have to increase the flax meal some to help hold them together or use an egg).
We loved those pumpkin blondies we made last year and we knew that we could make some tweaks to convert it into an amazing flourless bar using plantains. We admit it took a few attempts. But we stuck with it to create one yummy pumpkin blondie bar recipe for YOU!
And the chia seeds add in some nice texture to the blondies. Plus a nice nutritional boost.
These flourless pumpkin chia seed blondies may not be anything extravagant, but looks can be deceiving. These bars are amazing. If we do say so ourselves. They are so moist, slightly dense, slight chew and have the perfect pumpkin flavor.
We know it’s hard to stay away from sinful desserts this holiday season. And we know it’s even harder not to think about packing on extra pounds. But you know us, we’ve been working hard in creating better treats for you this season.
And doing our best to have some egg-free recipes for vegan friends and those that are allergic to eggs, and still want to eat grain-free.
We hope you enjoy this recipe.
We got this recipe inspiration not only from our chocolate chip pumpkin bars but also from our banana chocolate chip blondies. We adored how both those recipes came out and knew we had to create another version this holiday season.
And since we are the #plantainqueens we had to make it with plantains of course 😉Print
