Healthy & Delicious with Down to Earth Pumpkin S’mores Bars

Living808

Today we are combining two fall favorites to make pumpkin s’mores bars! These are a great holiday potluck dish because they’re incredibly easy to make ahead of time.  

We’ll start with the crust. First we’ll combine our graham cracker crumbs with some melted vegan butter. Then we’ll press it into our pan to form the crust.  For the filling, we’re just going to use pumpkin pie filling. It’s a great ingredient because it’s already spiced to perfection! We’ll just mix this with our coconut oil, cashew butter, vanilla and sea salt. When this is well combined, we’ll pour it onto the crust. 

Melted chocolate is essential to any s’mores recipe so we’re going to drizzle it over the top of our pumpkin mixture and swirl it around to make some really cool designs! Then we leave it in the fridge to set for at least an hour or overnight if you can.

Once it’s set, we will take them out, top them with vegan marshmallows and broil them keeping a close eye so they don’t burn.
