Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie Crumble Bars Recipe Tips

  • The recipe is pretty straight forward, needing just a few basic main ingredients: gluten-free oats, brown sugar, butter, pumpkin, eggs, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • I love using pumpkin pie spice (it’s a more budget-friendly way to get a blend of yummy autumnal, warm spices as opposed to buying them all individually), but you can certainly just use cinnamon or any combination of spices you prefer as long as they end up measuring the total pumpkin pie spice measure.
  • Be sure to use 100% pure pumpkin puree, NOT the canned pumpkin pie filling!
  • Yes, this recipe has butter and brown sugar – not in the traditional healthy recipe realm you find here, but 100% a simple, delicious, traditional flavored Thanksgiving dessert. Life is short – enjoy a dessert you want on Thanksgiving. 😉
  • You can make your own oat flour by grinding oats yourself in a food processor or spice grinder (affiliate link). You can also purchase oat flour (like this gluten-free oat flour from Amazon – affiliate link).
  • I have not tested this recipe vegan/ dairy free, so I can’t guarantee results with substitutions. You could try using a vegan/ dairy-free butter/ margarine substitute – I would expect that to be a better substitution than coconut oil. For an egg substitute, again, I have not tried it, but you could try flax eggs or silken tofu.
  • These are pumpkin pie crumble bars. They can get crumbly. 😉

Ingredients

For the Crumble:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (certified gluten-free)
  • 1 cup oat flour (certified gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

For the Pumpkin Filling:

  • 15 oz pumpkin puree (1 can)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Liberally grease a 9x9-inch baking pan with olive oil or butter (or line with parchment paper).

  2. Combine crumble ingredients using a pastry cutter (or even a fork!) to cut the cold butter into the other ingredients until the mixture is even with pea-sized pieces of butter. Place half the crumble mixture in the bottom of the baking pan and press firmly down. Reserve the other half of the crumble mixture.

  3. Combine filling ingredients. Pour pumpkin filling over the crumble mixture pressed down in the baking pan. Sprinkle (don't pan!) remaining crumble on top of the pumpkin filling.

  4. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Allow to cool for one hour at room temperature, and when cool enough transfer to the fridge to cool another two hours. Leave bars refrigerated until serving. Enjoy!
