PUMPKIN PIE BARS | healthy recipe




These pumpkin pie bars are the perfect healthy dessert for an autumn gathering. Made with pumpkin puree, coconut flour, maple syrup, and warm, cozy spices; they’re gluten-free, grain-free, and oh so delicious!

If you like pumpkin pie, you will love the convenience of these pumpkin pie bars studded with chocolate chips. They have a light, custard-like texture just like pie but can be cut into squares just like a brownie.

This is a one-bowl-dump-and-stir recipe (my favorite type!). Much easier than pumpkin pie and they work well for breakfast, dessert, or a snack.

INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Grease and 8×8 baking dish with coconut oil, butter or cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine; coconut flour, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, almond milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Transfer batter to prepared baking dish.

Bake for 45 minutes or until set through and lightly golden brown on top.
Cool completely and refrigerate for a minimum of eight hours before cutting into nine pieces. Enjoy!

NOTES
Be sure to buy dairy-free chocolate chips if you need the recipe to be 100% dairy-free.

For a more cake-like texture, swap the coconut flour with 1 cup of oat flour and eliminate the almond milk. I love this version for breakfast.

Be sure to store these bars in the refrigerator. They are best when eaten cold.

Experiment with different stir-ins. Dried cranberries, shredded coconut, pecans, and walnuts would all be delicious!

Steam your face. You can do this by placing your face over a hot bowl of water with a towel over your head. This will open up your pores and draw out impurities and bacteria. You should clean your face, then rinse it with cold water so you close your pores back up.

If your eyeliner tends to smear and crease, try dabbing a bit of a similar colored powdered eyeshadow over the top of it with a soft cotton swab. This will help to keep the eyeliner in place and make your eye makeup last longer before it requires a touch up.

If you have striking brown eyes, you can play them up by adding eyeshadow, liner, and mascara in colors that are especially flattering for your eye color. Look for rich, matte shadows in shades of green, copper, and blue. These colors add depth and intensity to your eye color, especially when topped with a few coats of navy mascara.

Select a curling iron, one size smaller than the curls you desire. This will help to ensure that your curls don’t get limp or fall out after you put all the work into curling them. They will be a little tight at first but after you finish, gently run your fingers through them to break them up, and then hair spray to perfection.

Pale or sparse eyebrows can be quickly and easily filled in to make them appear thicker and fuller. Use a disposable mascara wand to brush on dark brown eye shadow or mascara onto the brows, then comb it through with another disposable brush to smooth out the color and remove clumps.

You do not need to spend a lot of money on a fancy deep conditioning mask. There are many recipes you can make at home that include foods filled with nutrients that are great for your hair. A great one includes mashed strawberries and enough mayonnaise to make a spreadable paste. Leave it in your wet hair for 10 minutes and rinse.

Apply cream to your eyes every night. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and not as thick as the skin elsewhere on your face. This makes the skin around your eyes more prone to be lined and dry. Keeping the skin moist is a simple solution to that beauty problem.

Go on a detox diet once a month to maximize your beauty routine. You may not realize how many toxins are building up in your body on a daily basis. If you do not remove them regularly, they just sit in your body, and may later negatively affect your health.

To extend the life of your lip gloss, apply a lip liner first. Be sure to match your lip shade with the lip liner. By taking this step first you’re gloss will be sure to stay on much longer.

Put your vegetables on your skin. Vegetables have many health benefits when you eat them, and several more when used as a beauty treatment. Try cool cucumbers or sliced potato on your eyes to relieve puffiness and redness. Use water left from boiling cabbage, broccoli, or kale for a healthy skin toner.

To get the best results when bronzing your face, apply the bronzer only to your face’s higher planes. Apply the bronzer to your cheekbones, at the top of your nose and at the top corners of your forehead. This will give you a natural glow that will help illuminate your best features.

If you suffer from chronic, dry skin, you may want to see a dermatologist and get a microdermabrasion facial peel. Microdermabrasions are able to improve skin’s functioning and appearance in a very short amount of time. One treatment will help your skin to feel smoother and will improve your skin’s elasticity. Although one treatment helps, for the best results you should schedule at least 6 treatments.

To keep from getting eye bags, drink plenty of water before you go to bed. One of the leading causes of eyebags is dehydration during the night. If you still have eyebags when you wake up, rest cold, caffeinated teabags on your eyes for about 10 minutes. This will nourish your eyes and make the bags disappear.

Massaging Vaseline into your cuticles will help your hands in many ways. It will make the skin much more hydrated and it will also encourage your nails to grow a bit quicker. Do this once a week every week and you are sure to see a big difference in the appearance of your hands and nails.

If you have an important meeting, take special care with your perfume. Keep the scent light and airy so as not to overwhelm. You should put a small amount behind your ears and on your wrists. This will assure that you smell great when you are hugging and shaking hands at the meeting.

Crush up an aspirin and put it in your shampoo to get rid of dandruff. This will save you money on buying pricey shampoos made for dandruff. The painkilling properties in aspirin will calm your dry scalp and get rid of dandruff problems while using your favorite shampoo and conditioner.

Give yourself a mini facial using a mask made from an egg white and a dash of lemon juice. Leave the mask on for about two minutes, and then rinse. This gives your skin an instant tightening effect and is ideal to do about an hour before an evening out on the town.
