Pumpkin Almond Butter Bars with Gingersnap Crust

To live honest, I’ve never been a big pumpkin pie fan. I hateful it’second adept, only doesn’t make me swoon similar a rich fudge brownie, chocolate bit cookie, or a chocolate peanut butter dessert. Pies inward general don’t do much for me. Call me crazy! I’ll ever accept a piece of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, merely that’s it. I don’t mean nigh it for the balance of the year. Pumpkin BREAD on the other mitt..totally different story. Obsessed to enjoin the least.

These bars are making me modify my tune! They’re reminiscent of pumpkin pie, but and then much healthier, in addition to they pack a gingery seize with teeth from the gingersnaps! They’re virtually paleo, except for the gingersnap crust. I wouldn’t guess you lot if you lot ate 1 for breakfast or for a snack.

I LOVE gingersnaps. They’re i of those nostalgic foods for me. I ate them equally a kid in addition to I retrieve my best friend oftentimes had them stocked in their snack drawer. We’d take handfuls all the fourth dimension. They also had those big ICED oatmeal raisin cookies in the long rectangular package..anyone recollect those?! So then proficient.

The drizzled nighttime chocolate adds adjacent degree deliciousness. The pumpkin together with night chocolate combo e'er gets me! Don’t skip it!

These are delicious common cold, as well. They’ll go on much longer inwards the refrigerator. Also, if you lot prefer graham cracker crust to gingersnap, experience costless to role graham crackers here. They’d function beautifully! Or, you lot can sub any cookie yous wanna experiment with!

These are a perfect Halloween or fifty-fifty Thanksgiving process! Or anytime treat, because you lot’re WORTH it.
